    I like the emphasis, Val, and great to know things are happening at last.
    (Not too sure about the 'normal' though. Do we do normal on here? x:lol: )

    Well done to you to fighting your way through it valval, these are powerful meds and for some they do need to be given a longer chance than just taking them for a week or whatever. I am lucky in that sulph has never given me any trouble and I hope it proves to be an effective treatment for you. DD

    Great news Val, long may it last. It's awful when you start a new drug and you feel worse and wonder if it's ever going to work.
    Happy New Year.

    i do think the consultant rushed it a little, 1 twice a day 4 first week then up to 2 twice a day was bit fast. but think when he saw my hands (had not shown him before) how bad things were.
    but i am a stubborn so and so and will cope with what ever thrown at me lol val

    I'm sure you will, Val. One thing arthritis teaches is stubborness, though I think mine came first - according to the family. I hope the sulfa makes it a good year for you.
