Morning guys, i’d just like to say hello.
I’m currently in the process of narrowing down which autoimmune condition I have by my Consultant through testing following three months of the most horrendous pain affecting most joints around my body.
Being a very active 50 year old training 6 days a week and competing in ultra endurance mountain bike events this has came as a massive shock and very hard for me to adjust to the current ‘norm’ and quite worrying what effect this will have on my family and work, cycling can wait.
Just started my first course of Methotrexate last Saturday and dropping my dose of Pendnisolne plus received a couple of steroid and local anaesthetic injections directly into affected areas including my old AC joint surgery which has got to be the worst affected.
My Consultant gave me this organisation’s address due to the amount of information and assistance that can be provided.
The physical pain is hard to deal with but I wasn’t prepared for the mental battle.
anyway, good to be here.
