Hi, I've been meaning to come her for a while but didn't really know what to say. I think I've now got a diagnosis but not 100%. I received a letter that said Inflammatory osteoarthritis. My symptoms are mainly in my fingers and wrists which is flipping rubbish as I drive a lot and type for work. I started on Celecoxib 100mg twice daily about 2 weeks ago and after 12 days I had no response at all. Go put me on 200mg twice daily and today is day 2 of that.
I have so many questions about this condition, my symptoms and this medication that I don't know where to start, it's all a bit overwhelming.
I'm 45 and my symptoms came on quickly last Sept but progressively got worse this year where Ive now admitted I need some sick leave from work. I feel very sad this has happened. Just to hear from some friendly people would be lovely. Understand the condition and the medication I'm taking would be good too as I've heard some scary stuff.
Sorry for sounding like a downer , I'm not normally but this flipping hurts and one of my fingers is now pretty misshapen.
