been like this for so long now i feel like i'm on a roundabout that doesn't stop - but i got a bit of good news too!!
Dr has given me stronger antibiotics - so hopefully they will work.
Could never work out why i always get hip pain and muscle ache when i have an infection on its way - and the worse the pain the worse the infection - i mean its sounds so strange - the lungs and hip are not connected are they!!
The Doctor was really good and took her time to explain to me that because of my age i may well have the onset of osteoarthritis, when you get a chest infection your body's immune system doesn't like to co-operate so it will emphasize the other aches and pains you may have but not usually feel because you are well. A bit like your glands swelling when you get infections.
so i am no longer feeling like a hypochondriac - and the men in the white coats are not coming for me
