Forum changes

In the next few days we'll be switching to new forum software which is much more stable and will eliminate the problems we've had over the last few months. Once we've switched to the new software every member will need to reset their password. You can still use your current username. You'll need to click on the "forgot password" link and follow the simple instructions to reset your password. Please make sure your email address is up to date in your account now. Remember, you don't need to do anything yet, carry on using the forums as normal, and it will be obvious when the switch has gone through and you need to reset.

  • Knee


    My knee has become swollen again after a steroid injection over two weeks ago. Has anyone got any home remedies to help keep it down? as I need to work to pay the bills or am I going to have to ring my rhumy nurse and get it checked out again? Still not on any meds as am waitng for a Gastroenterology for further investigation of iron deficiency anaemia before I start any.

    Any advice would be truly grateful

    Thank you

    I think you need to ring the rheumy nurse for advice. It may need draining. In the meantimes, ice, rest compression and elevation should help.

      I agree with all of Deb's advice - good luck, it sounds painful.
