Subject: Re: pain relief?
hi Bekki, its bad when we first start out with RA , the drugs you will need the consultants have to prescribe them but there is somethings your GP can do , & things you can do your self
your appointment is along several weeks away , so go back to your GP & ask if they could get a earlier appointment & also ask your GP if you could have a steriod injection which will help until you see the consultant
hot & cold will help your hands , its will get them moving , had same with my ankles when I first started with RA back in 1996 , you can get Voltarol Pain-eze Emulgel - 100g from your GP or from Boots , this will help your hands
in the link section above you will find three main charities , two has free helpline if you need them , & they have loads of information about everything you need to know about RA
