Subject: Sore Feet, Message for S.Rodgers

Hi there... sharon are you Sharon Rodgers? or are there two sharons on here? lol Im confused....

Ok regards your feet, You need to go back, mybe have them xrayed, I had mine xrayed and it showed Synovial fluid inflamation, the pain at night was like Roaring toothache, terrible pain on the top of the foot and under the arch(all over basically) hopefully it will go on its own in time, mine are ok at mo, are u on the Anti TNF drugs? Methtrexate? Enbrel ? etc? since going on those, I have had less flare ups, and I cope better, only problem is, becoz my immune system is Poo, I keep having absesses in my gums, im still seeing my dentist and got to have 4 teeth removed, and was also told today that my two front teeth are loose!! Im upset by that news, but Im also on my 3rd week of antibiotics and the infection hasnt gone! so fingers crosssed

anyway pls go see your gp, get those feet xrayed, it can tell them so much what is going on, plus there is a name for that condition, but I cant remeber it, maybe one of the guys on here will know it ?

take care
Love jill

blimey sharon, you pooor girl, cant imagine the pain you have had then, Im on morphine and when I get painful feel, I want to SCREEEEAMMMMMMMMMMMM!!! ive got a bad memory sharon(due to meds LOL) so cant remember if yu have probs everywhere in your Body, they only put people on Methtrexate etc If you pass the medical test...you have to have so many points(sounds nuts huh?) but its true, the Biologics Nurse will look at all your joints to see how bad they all are...there has to be a certain amount of swelling and activity going on in the joints... Not everyone gets the chance to get on them sadly, I know there are risks going on such toxic drugs, but bloods are taken monthly, so they keep a very stict eye on your Health! also the drugs are very expensive(ten grand a year) But IF you deserve it, U make sure You get them...your rhumatologist has to give the go ahead...GPS cant offer it to u... anyway, im rambling now, rememeber tell them How excruiating it is.... to be honest, they see people like us everyday, they do know and understand the pain you are in.... so chin up... and let me know wot happens... by the way, what Painkillers are you o n.... You need something stronger than paracetamol...im on Zomorph, brilliant painkiller...

take care

Love jill x
