Just a quick question!
I’m newly diagnosed with seronegative inflammatory arthritis. I have stiffness in multiple joints upon waking in the morning (usually waking up feeling like I’ve been hit by a car during the night!) but this does tend to ease off eventually. However, I’m currently experiencing permanent stiffness in a couple of my fingers and toes which is driving me crazy. I can just about cope with it in my toes, but I’m now having difficulty when making phone calls and also when typing on the computer. Is this normal for stiffness not to ease off at all?! Might be a silly question sorry, but I was only diagnosed a few weeks ago and am still trying to wrap my head around the diagnosis and the symptoms which come with it.
I unfortunately can’t avoid either of these tasks as they’re work related.
I’m currently waiting on a call back from my rheumy nurse to discuss starting me on Methotrexate or an anti-inflammatory as I’ve recently had to stop taking Naproxen after ending up with stomach problems due to it. Praying I will get some relief once I begin taking medication again 🤞🏼
