It's 3am. I've been woken by a fox trAshing next door's food bin. Got up to see what the noise was, and realised I could put both feet on the ground with no pain and stiffness!! The steroid has at last started to work. Mind you, my eyes are burning and my skin hurts, as though I have 'flu. But I can wiggle my toes! Goodness! The relief . I'm now much too excited to go back to sleep.
