Hi Shaz, I didn't come on the website yesterday as I spent most of it in bed. I had another flare up where every part or joint hurt so much I had difficulty getting out of my chair or off the loo. I found it much easier to get up off the bed. I hate being in bed as I like to keep moving. I think this flare up was caused due to me not having the 2nd infusion a week last Tuesday and I am now on 7.5mg prednisilone that was until last night when I increased it back to 10mg. I am going to stay on that dose until I either have my next infusion or I see my Rhuemy nurse.
I went to see another doctor at my clinic today, she looked at the rash I have on my legs and arms and gave me a prescription for some shower gel and moisteriser as she feels the shower gel I use is iritating my skin. she also gave me a prescription for a steroid cream for my legs. I have to go back to see her next Tuesday when I have finished taking the antibiotics. I didn't expect any of this to happen. Everything was going so well. I really do think if I could have had the next infusion on time I would have been fine.
Sorry about going on about things, I do apologize.
I just hope I can still go to see my family in Canada.
I am feeling better today, thank goodness, the flare up has settled down somewhat as I have tried to take things easy today.
I hope you are still keeping well and pain free. Enjoying the nice weather where you are.
I will say goodnight, sleep well, no fighting with the headboard.
Take care, Sue xxx
