I haven't posted in some time. I've been having even more problems popping up. I was in the hospital on Christmas and 2 days afterwards, because I started to have numbness and nueropathy pain and tingylness on the right side of my body really bad. I was supposed to have an MRI done, and a spinal tap but of course they couldn't do it on Christmas Day, so I had to wait.. they got me mixed up with someone else, ended up giving me the wrong meds at one point. It was a mess, none the less.. they believe that I'm having mini-strokes. Has anyone else had to deal with this? I can't feel my right leg at all really, aside from pressure.. I can however feel the RA in my hip, still. It's really starting to worry me. I go back to the rheumy on Thurs, but now I have to come up with the money to go to a neurologist.. fun fun.
If anyone has ever had problems like that, I'd appreciate feed-back, and advice.
