I'm getting so sick of this disease! i have had 3 flare ups in 4 weeks, the first was my legs? all the muscles in my legs i got up at around 7am and by 10am i could not even stand up as i was in so much pain with it, so i had to stay on the sofa all day and the pain was nothing like have had before i ended up taking 4 pain-killers at once it was that bad, the next day was better but still in pain but no where near like it was the first day, i was just about getting over it and then my Foot started to flare! but this started over a number of hours and by the end of the day i could not walk i was in so much pain! so i take some pain-killer to go to bed with and the next day, it was not much better so i go and see my GP as the pain-killers i had was not doing anything, he give me some Tramadol 50mg, and wanted me to have an X-ray, so i go have the X-ray i told the woman who did the x-ray that i have RD and once i had it done she went away and looked at it, she came back and asked me who i was under! i asked why and she said he/she needs to see this, i know my foot is getting bad but what if it gets to bad? what then.... so i come away from there feeling very low, the next day the pain started to go and by the 3rd day still a bit of pain but it was the pain you could put up with ( i'm sure you all know what i'm saying!) that pain we live with, and then to cap it all of last night i start to get a niggling pain in my shoulder! and i think back to when i had this before and i know whats coming, well today i wake up around 7am as the pain is to much, its like someone has got my arm behind my back and will not let go, omg this pain is so to much to take & and its only the first day and this one will go on for 2 or 3 days as i have had this before, i can move the lower part of my arm as long as i keep the top part of my by my side but the top part is a no no! this pain is the worst pain apart from that leg pain i had, i only have to touch my shoulder with my finger and it send the pain level through the roof.
I have a appointment to see my consultant tomorrow! i also have hydrotherapy tomorrow but i don't think i can do that now,
Just so sick of RD just so low and depressed! most of the time, never in my life have i been this low
Thank you all! for being there and understanding!
Hope you are all doing better then me, and i don't wish this pain on anyone!
