My GP has got a date for my Dexa scan 17th July, so i went and got a copy of the letter my rhymi sent her.
RA Mechanical neck and back
mildly raised CK but autoantibody screen and myositis blot negative
Plan is to start on 70mg AA
i am still symptomatic with a lot of pain in neck and hands he thinks this is due to osteoarthriti arthritis.
c changes and not due to active inflammatory arthritis.
Temporal artery was not thickened and was pulsatile.
she gets jaw pain, but is about 5 mins after eating so it is not jaw claudication.
my crp is not elevated, she is asking about the bubble wrap noise i expect this is due to osteoarthritic changes.
i think her current symptoms are predominately dur to osteoaarthritis than an active inflammatory rheumatoid arthritis, nevertheless there seems to be some response to steroids, she has had a IMA STEROID injection to cover here for a few months, she is to reduce here steroids 1mg a month,as she is still on pred.
she is to start AA 70mg per week
we will see her in six months'
I still think i need to speak about my last scan it showed osteopenia in 2017 he said, i cannot find my last scan results.
He did not seen concerened about by MRI scan
I have never felt so ill as i have in this last week, waking up barking in the night with a cough, pains in legs '
will speak to the doctor when i get an appointment
