Have any of you had it? Pros and cons? I also have a couple of cysts along the tendon sheath, one of which is in an irritating spot and is quite hard.
Having a cortisone shot into the tendon in 3 weeks time under ultrasound to see if that helps. My rheumy gave me one in the wrist in surgery, thats a sore spot.
Also did my big toe so I felt hilarious driving home trying to grip wth a numb hand and feel with a numb big toe. I was fine.
Worst news though was my white blood cells have again plummeted these last 6 months, I'm hanging on 3 bt she says if it drops much lower they'll have to alter my meds... don't you hate that just when you feel like you're surviving with this disease, something throws a spanner in the works.
Seems my rheumy feels my RA is active again anyway, my toes are swollen and so are my knuckles, my wrists have carpel tunnel and are a bit crunchy when I rotate them. I'm 54 and feel like a little old lady at times, going for my daily nana naps just to get through a day. I'm shattered fter being on my feet for a few hours.
Sorry turning in to a bit of a whinge.
Plus I keep getting migraines, I'm wondering if its to do with my neck? Do any of you have migraines?
Love to you all and thanks for your wonderful help over the years, golitho
