Its been a struggle, the last few weeks my hands have FLARED up so so bad. Each night it’s at its worst, feeling like they are being crushed in a vice, but they are simply resting.
My worst hand is this left one, the one I daren’t ever have injections I again after that disaster last time. Random swellings and crushing sensations in this one every day and night.
Right one better but not 100 percent. Has now weirdly developed a dip or dent where the joint is. It’s new to me, though I know others have it. Not sure why it’s appeared at all.
Feel like I need to discuss medication with the GP but also terrified to go. Not even sure there is anything they can do, I know I need surgery, but until I walk unaided it’s not even an option 😭😭😭 Has anyone else had an increase in pain?
Decided to source the 8 paracetamol a day, and take my etoricoxib as planned too, with an additional cbd oil. Could be pure placebo,or snake oil. But I’m willing to give it a chance, anything to settle these hands down. Started on Friday, so let’s see how this works out.
