I had a baby six months ago, during pregnancy as expected all symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis went away...was lovely!! But now it has came back with avengence (excuse spelling!!)...both of my wrists have fused themselves together and first thing in the day they are agony...
I am back on methotrexate which i know takes a few months to kick in and with my rheumatologist we are trying to get this back to the correct level, so I know it takes time, but Im just concerned I am now not going to be able to do my previous job..
My wrists wake me during the night and first thing in the morning are agony.... I struggle enough with my little boy (my partner brilliant but his at work so not here to help), but as I will be working shifts and starting at 6 in the morning alot of the time I just dont know what to do..
People always ask how I am and Im not one to play on pain, infact i hardly say anything....well to my family cos they understand but noone else seems to.............but everyone seems to think they have a bit of rheumatisim in them.................( b*******!!---sorry it annoys me so much!!)
I dont know if I should find another job or what to do...as my job has some physical sides to it....
Think its enough to look after my baby and if I could afford to id be more than happy to look after him with a part time job but I just cant..
Im just so worried bout going back to work.....and I know they cant offer me an office job or anything cos they arent any...
where do I stand? what do I do??
