I saw the Rheumy nurse specialist for the first time yesterday and she was very good. I was worried that she might not be understanding, I never doubted that she would be knowledgable. Anyhow she says my disease is still quite active and wants to change me from tablets (methotrexate) to injections. I will start next week but have to have 2 sessions where they watch me do it before I do them at home on my own. Has anyone else had this happen.
Also they want to increase the dose, I'm currently on 15microgrammes and they want to put me up to 20. Is this common too?
I'm quite disappointed really as although I'm not feeling great I'd thought I was sorted and could perhaps go back to work soon but she says it would'nt be a good idea at the moment. What do you guys think.
