Well yesterday I went for my 6 weekly vampire visit and we chatted about my last blood results, I know she is a nurse but she did make sense! Since before Christmas my bloods have shown the Sulphasalazine isn't working and is causing me to be anaemic so I need to have my meds changed. I get on with this nurse and we always have a laugh but she said this upcoming Rheumatology appointment is long over due. And to top the week off Since Sunday my left knee has been painful and I've not been able to put any wait on it so to add that to the painful shoulder and everything else I'm starting to fall to bits!! :cry:

    I am glad the nurse made sense, lol. We do try. It is good to have someone who you have a good relationship with, regarding your healthcare etc. I am sure we are all falling to bits :roll: Hope the Rheumy appt is of benefit, seeing as the Sulpha is not doing its job. So many drugs, they take some juggling at times. Hugs for your knee pain to ease (((((((()))))))
    Take care XX Aidan
