Rhumatology Apt update
I saw a new Rheumatologist yesterday and she came across as very easy to talk to. She asked me lots of questions and checked my blood results for the last 3 months. Then she started humming and said my inflammatory markers had been low for the last 3 blood tests and how had I been lately. I explained about my flare up and the chest infection, then she asked to feel my main problem joints. Then she started humming again and said I believe you have Psoriatic Arthritis and not Osteo-Arthritis! She explained it to me and told me to reduce the Hydro & Sulphasalquine and come off them both and see how I go from there and if I still feel worse call my Rheumatology nurse and let her know. I left feeling totally confused. I told my OH and he said I would talk to your G.P before doing anything. I don't suffer from any Psoriatic so where did she come up with that from?
