  1. Hi Folks

     

    Well I am well concrolled with MTX (methotrexate) and quite moblie and I like swimmimg and walking if flat and the garden.

    It's nice to talk to you folks with R.A. (rheumatoid arthritis) AND slceroderma. My mouth is getting tight and skin changeing on hands, finger sore and Raynauds other wise not too bad.

     

    When they told me I had scleroderma it was left too the O.T. (occupational therapist) she was very good and told me she would have too sit me down for a hour and talk too me and that I had something else and was not too go home and look it up till she had spoke to me . She was brillant and drew me diagrams on how it would effects me and had booklets for me . I left very imformed in fact I called it counselling. I was taught how too look after my self by the O.T. WHO'S THE BEST IN WORLD. The team have got me moblie and I have to do what they say too keep like this.

     

    Love chockers /christine


  2. Arghhh you have to get good advice from somewhere. Someone who can help with DLA.

    I had a spot check the other day from incapacity benefits and I might loose my DLA as I am very mobile now only though the help of taking MTX AND physio- and hydrotherapy.

     

    I would not sort it out on your own.

     

    You need to describe your worst day on form, not the feel good days.

    I am Christine. I am 56 I have rheumatoid arthritis and overlap scleroderma and Raynaud's. I now have a very sore finger with lumps in it, I guess one day there might be an ulcer !!!!!!!

    I am always cold. How do other people cope? I am quite mobile at the moment on Methotrexate.
