After a gradual deterioration of 4 of my fingers which have resulted in me stopping playing tennis And taking up swimming,
eventually saw a rheumatologist on Tuesday. She diagnosed me with inflammatory arthritis. I am 43 and have an active job in a school.
I have been prescribed methotrexate and am a bit wary of the potential side effects which is why I'm starting the first dose tonight. I already suffer from fatigue and need to manage my rest.
Have been having mixed feelings all week to whether my symptoms are bad enough for the medication but after having a kid pull at my fingers yesterday, they are really sore today.
Thanks for listening (or reading)
