I'm new to this, I'm 44 and was diagnosed with RA wrists feet and most jointy places in Nov/dec last year, started on Meth inj ..took AGESSS for any benefit, I was a bit underwhelmed...think I had high hopes, added in Hydroxychloroquine Feb and still needing celebrex 200mg twice daily and codeine..tried a few times to cut back on pain relief and my pain is immediately worse again...I was so active before this, not particularly into sports but a non-stop person, gardening etc. with a busy job; I'm a nurse specialist. There is no doubt I am a hundred times better than I was, but out of nowhere sometimes I am just exhausted. I did used to have a lot of tiredness getting used to the meds, falling asleep all the time etc, but there definitely is an improvement, however once/twice a week at least im done in, could this coincide with injection needing it.?
Hands and feet are cold a lot, i'm shielding so have the foot warmer on all day everyday day and night...yep through the hot week we had too!, its ridiculous
Just wondering really other peoples experiences and whether this is stuck with me, sometimes I can't quite believe it and think they have got it all wrong...my bloods were fine apart from ESR, and was diagnosed with xrays.
Hope all ok during this crazy lockdown
