Finally got a little bit of crafting

Spent several hours at Chapel Allerton Hospital last Wednesday and finally got somewhere, loads of tests, ultra sounds and armfuls of bloods but at last I'm getting some treatment. They have a an Arthritis research programme there and I have been put on that. Up to now there are no rheumatoid markers so they think it is inflammatory arthritis which is more or less the same thing.It's in almost all my joints and its unbelievably painful! However I am now on steroids and they seems to be kicking in hence managing to make the fat book page in the last post.

I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who have left me such kind and encouraging comments, believe me they are so much appreciated



  1. Hope they've found some answers and got the right solutions, if you follow my drift! A pal has been on steroids & seems to have sorted out most of her problem but she has a new one now.... Feels she looks like a football - did not dare tell her she'd been one sore a number of years!


  2. fingers crossed you get sorted Joan.. its not pleasant being in pain .. thinking of you

  5. Good to hear you have at last started a programme. Arthritis is blooming painful so any relief is blessed. Must have missed your fat page, so will go back and take a look. Hugs Annette x

  6. Hi Joan, so sorry to hear about this. As a Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferer I understand all to well how bad the pain can be. Hope the steroids work while they find another solution for you. Hugs, Anne x

  7. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll feel better soon.
