Since coming off Hydroxychloroquine I've started suffering with certain joints including shoulder & hips. And I've been really suffering with my operated on foot a lot. It's swollen up where the bunion was and can hardly walk on it. At least I'm seeing my Bunion Consultant Thursday to see what he thinks. Then early this morning I woke myself because my right knee locked up and it took forever to get it to unlock. So I've decided I'm going to call my Rheumatology Nurse tomorrow and see what she says as my next Rhummy apt is not till March. I really don't want to suffer over Christmas. :xmas_cry:
