hi everyone, I was first sent to rheumatologist in sept as I had lost strength , feeling and had pain in my arms. I also had high rf in blood. Rheumatologist didn't think I had RA but gave me steroid injection. It helped but I was soon in constant agony more than before and completely exhausted. I kept going back to Dr they doubled my naproxen, codeine and paracetamol but I am still in horrendous pain then 2 weeks ago they finally had my results from hospital following tests I had (3 months previous) and just casually said that I do have RA and that the consultant would sort meds at hospital when I go on 30th December. I have been in agony all over Christmas and I haven't left the house due to pain in my hip and leg, I can't sleep and no where is comfortable and I couldn't walk properly this morning, I just keep crying in pain and keep taking pain killers I'm due back to work next Monday ( stressful job) if I can't get any relief soon I don't think I'm going to be able to work not sure what I'm going to do, any advice from anyone regarding my appointment and what to ask and expect on 30th? Many thanks and sorry for complaining...x
