Update....wow !!

Hi everyone hope you are all painfree,

No I am not going to moan today !!

Just thought I would update you all as I could not put up with all the pain I have been having over the last few weeks so I bit the bullet and got an emergency appointment yesterday with my GP.

I was given a prescription for Prednisolone and Tramadol......wow what a difference, I took the first steroid tablets this morning and now after only a few hours I can actually get out of the chair and walk almost normally again, I feel like someone new or back to my (near) normal self.

I cant believe that this has happened so quick or why I wasn't offered this by my rheumy the last time I saw her in so much pain, Me not my Consultant !!

Anyway I hope this is going to last,

Thanks everyone for listening to all my moaning over the last few weeks.

Hugs Wendy xx
