Hi all – am new here so forgive me if I’m not following etiquette.
Having been diagnosed with PsA in just my left knee I had a radio synovectomy – doesn’t seem to have worked. I broke my elbow in an accident and now that’s swelling up to and I’ve lost full movement. After a short flight two months ago my ankles swelled up, one went down the other is still swollen and has joint pain. Now the whole of my lower leg (knee to ankle) is swollen and gets very painful all over – kind of like cramp.
I’m taking 1000mg to 1500mg naproxen plus paracetamol and codeine at night for the pain. Pain varies from manageable and stiff to excruciating. I’ve done lots of internet trawling but can’t find any info on swelling of limbs other than in joints.
My next hospital appointment is end of Jan – just wondering if this is normal or I should make a fuss and contact the hospital?
Anyone out there had this or heard of it???
Thank you 😀
