Subject: does any one know.....

whether if you are taking Dmards and steroids and still have swollen joints whether damage is being done to them? I don't want to up the steroids but my wrists, in particular, seem to be getting worse. Ankles not up to much either. Am worried am doing permanent damage. Guess I should phone the rheumy nurse but I've called her about at least three times already. Any thoughts gratefully received. Sally

hi Val, thanks for that. Rang the rheumy nurse and she said not. Not entirely sure she is right though. Will have to wait and see!
