my polymyalgia

15 Nov

Well, I didn’t make it to the doctor. The pain was sooo bad that I started back on the cortisone yesterday. The difference to my day was something else.

I could get out of my chair and do all my activities pain free. The best was that I could get on the floor and get up again! I haven’t been able to do that all year.

On the down side, having taken 15mg at breakfast, it was no longer giving me relief in bed. I still had the same pain and struggled to get up this morning.

So, having taken the same 15mg today, with the same effect, I have decided that I will take 5mg at bed time too, if the pain is there as it was last night.

I will still be going to the doctor. He will be writing me a script and having to accept that it is back.

I am back. This is why my year has been so miserable. I have been depressed. It has been like a fine film between me and the world and I just haven’t been able to get through it. My damaged knee of unknown cause has been slowing me down all year. It is already better, more mobile, looser, flexible, although there is still tenderness in one area.

Here is to a better life, a pain free life. Yahoo!
