Re: Methotrexate & Covid Vaccines

Thank you very much for your response, Wendy. He's not confident about swapping to a different medication, even though it's been suggested by the Rheumatologist, because of it being risky, and I'd be worried to do this at present anyway. I wasn't sure what the vaccine for Covid would likely be in te...

Methotrexate & Covid Vaccines

Hello, I hope you're well today. This is the second question I’m asking, so I hope that’s okay. I'm being greedy! My father has rheumatoid arthritis and takes Methotrexate. He’s also elderly and in the highly vulnerable group with this immunosuppressant medication so he’s been shielding since March....

Medication To Go Alongside Methotrexate?

Hello, I hope you’re well. Both of my parents have a form of arthritis, and I have my own joint & muscle issues too, so it’s great to see an arthritis clinic! My father as rheumatoid arthritis. He was initially on steroids and Methotrexate but he weaned off steroids fully last year and now only take...

Daytime Drinking

Hello, I hope you're well. I actually haven't had any alcohol at all since New Year's Eve (one small glass while watching the fireworks on TV, that's the kind of exciting life I lead still developing chronic illness!) - it's not from choice as much as from not feeling well enough or wanting anything...

Prolapse-related ABL

Hello, I think this is a brilliant clinic to run because ABL is something very rarely talked about and has a heap of stigma and social shame attached to it. There's also a lot of stereotyping around it, such as it affecting older individuals, whereas actually a lot of younger people can struggle, to...

Re: Thin Skin & Bruising

Blood clotting is one that I hadn't thought of and that hasn't been done. I'll make sure this gets checked, just to make sure. Thank you so much, Dr Wedgeworth, it's much appreciated!

Thin Skin & Bruising

Hello, My mum is 70 (71 in April, though she doesn't look it!) She does have some health issues but these are related to osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Her hands can get quite painful and her fingers are 'knobbly', as she says, but she manages. The strange thing is the red/purple bruising she gets...

Re: yoga at home!

I'll have to check out that site. Yoga is something I'd wanted to get back into at home (used to do a little several years ago) so I've bought a yoga mat, did a blog post on the benefits and some start-up things for yogi newbies, and got my head around getting in to a daily routine with it... I'm no...

Re: Steroids, Inflammatory Arthritis & No Answers (My Dad)

Hello Dr Holden,

Thank you for taking the time to reply and so thoroughly and compassionately too, I really appreciate it. What you've said is reassuring and I'll certainly check out potential physiotherapy too as I think that may be very beneficial. Thanks again!

Caz :)

Steroids, Inflammatory Arthritis & No Answers (My Dad)

Hello, I'm really glad to see this clinic pop up as both my ageing parents now deal with arthritis and the associated pain. I'm sorry if this is a little long - the situation has affected me, the house and our family quite considerably so I want to cover as much as I can. I hope you don't mind. A co...
