New and feeling a bit lost.
Hi All, Am new to posting on any kind of forum but this diagnosis has left me a bit shell shocked and not many people seem to understand. I'm a 38yr old mother of two beautiful boys, wife to the most amazingly supportive husband and I work full time. I started suffering in June last year with agonising pains in my fingers, this quickly spread to toes, ankles and knees. I have currently been given 22.5mg methotrexate and 5mg maintenance dose of prednisolone and been assured by my Rheumatologist that one day I will be pain free. I can't imagine this ever being the case to be honest !! My diagnosis was Sero-negative Inflammatory arthritis. One of my more obnoxious work colleagues assured me there was not such thing and that the meds were probably a precortionary messure??? Anyone heard of these meds being given as a precausion?? I'm confused and pretty baffled by the whole thing!! Thanks for taking the time to read xx
