I asked my gp if I could be referred to the rhumy in Burton? but he said why get another doc' involved I may as well wait until my June ap' in London I understand but I just feel I need to talk to one about my joints.
I have always been in pain for many years with my joints, but they started to worsen approx. 3 months ago.
I was putting up with my feet, knees, elbows & now my back in that time as I had just assumed it would pass once the weather got better!!
Well it hasn't & I'm used to my back going as it has since I was 13 years old, but this ones different...instead of the usual middle / bottom of the spine pain & then a trapped nerve down my right leg (I have degenerative disc disorder) the pain went down the left side of the bottom of my back & the pain shot down my left leg? he says if it continues he will send me for xrays to see what the discs & spine is doing now
Also the pain in my elbows I thought may have been tennis elbw but he checked for that & he says it isn't?
I asked about arthritis & he thinks it may not be rheumatoid arthritis but it could be oesteoarthritis........maybe due to the vit. d deficiantcy?
Inr still going down instead of up...now 2.8.....
My knees are always quite week & crunch & my feet can be so painful at times when I first get out of bed or get up off a chair?.....
Oh well I know I'm still not as bad as some but I'm so sick of the pain.
Hugs to all my Hughie friends xx
