Blow

Well just been for my annual see the resp nurse and blow the roof off the little pigs house..there is a marked up % from last years . On diagnosis I was 46% last year it was 68 % and today 74% ...though these numbers are registered on the system I have no care as to what they are it's how I feel that matters inside and out . If I'm happy I'm happy and when I have a down day I let everyone know about it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Apparently I can do with losing weight according to the very overweight nurse that did the test ... I hit the scale at 76 kg so in a year put on 6kg she asked if I worked and told her I am a dog walker pet sitter and I explained the pounds gained was at a guess muscle due to the amount of walking I do ...so to celebrate my weight and number gain I'm ordering Chinese and have a big Easter egg for after..have a beautiful weekend all laugh love and live πŸ’žπŸ’ž

Yay, keep it up, the longer you can manage this the better. Yesterday was a brilliant day for me, I did not use my reliever inhaler at all. Although I still had the night leg cramps yet again, which have reappeared after a years respite, possibly because the better weather has been good for walking distance again.

Hi 2 greys, try having a large glass of water before going to bed, you may be loosing more fluid due to increase temp in weather. Dehydration can cause cramps xx

Thank you, I am aware of that and do drink and take a glass of water to bed. Leg cramp is an old bedfellow of mine and have spent a long time trying different remedies, both medicinal and herbal, to no avail. It is weird how it come and goes but something that I have got used to. Peripheral Cardiovascular Disease is classed as a disablement and I believe responsible for it, along with leg muscle use that will stop me from walking before breathlessness does.

had terrible leg cramps at night too, it turned out it was due tp a vitamin B12 deficiency. They go away if don't forget to have my once a month B12 shot. I'm proud of this remedy, which I discovered myself, so I'm spreading the word. It might work for you too, hopefully!

Thanks, I have tried that too. The only thing that will help is stents being inserted but they don't last forever and also have risks attached that I find unacceptable. Stents would have to be inserted into what is a major artery that runs down through the body and stomach, where it divides into two, one for each leg with stents in those as well. Exercise and diet can help, but exercise also induces the pain too, a no win situation. After three years of this exercise and diet have not worked so I just have to put up with it for now.

All sounds very good to me, Blackbird, especially the Chinese and the whole Easter egg. ENJOY!

Ps I’ve never met a resp nurse yet who doesn’t say lose weight, it’s on their script! I was bang on my bmi and still got told...,.πŸ€ͺ😳πŸ₯΄

Good humour! When mum was in hospital,(1999) the doctors, religiously went on & on to mum & my family about smoking!

Dad & those in the family who were smokers, used to go down to the smokers area, which was miles away!

We would see those same doctors, having a cigarette. Go figure!
