Hi there, I've very recently been diagnosed with erosive arthritis tho several years ago I was also diagnosed with bursitis in my hips and spine.
Suffice to say, my doctors have been lax with the erosive diagnoses, two years ago I complained about my fingers and was just fobbed off, this time however I went armed with pics of my hands from 4 years ago, so it was clearly visible!.
I am currently on Codeine for the pain as Naproxen doesn't seem to touch me and also because I also have hiatus hernia and ibs, my stomach can't tolerate naproxen for very long, the Codeine works a little better however this leaves me constipated.
I would really like other members help and advice on how they deal with the painful flare-ups as I feel I am in limbo at the moment.
Thanks everyone x
