My gps have been trying to decide for ages now whether or not I have RA or PA but they are now leaning towards PA. I had my first appointment yesterday with my Rheumy nurse and she was lovely. Very thorough checked every joint and made notes of hotspots. Discussed their plan thankfully she agreed the way forward is to actually have the 3 bone isotope scan and an mri of my hands. When I see my consultant next, he will be giving me a new med .....Methotrexate I must say I am a little wary of the side effects of this, and wondered if any of you are on this drug and how you are coping with it? I also have to have my bloods monitored regularly now, she gave me a blood book lol. I also have OA and a prolapsed disc since I was 22. I also have DiGeorge Syndrome which is to do with my genes/dna. I am a lady of age 51 and have been seeing doctors most of my life. I had a chest xray done yesterday whilst there, can you tell if there is anything wrong by what the radiologist tells you? He asked if I had to go back to outpatients and I said no and he replied it will be with your consultant when you see him next and he will discuss the results with you. I am not at all worried what will be will be, just curious lol
