I've been having a flare involving just about every bone in my body which has lasted since last December. I usually try to battle on without moaning about it but a number of things have collected up to bring me to my lowest ebb. I've had two surgeries on my wrist following a fall in May of last year. Right arm, right handed! Now I need surgery on my knee. I've been on a cocktail of painkillers which don't work but contribute to the downward spiral I've been in. Now I'm anaemic! A whole load of other things have been going on which I won't bore you all with. For the first time I can no longer see the light at the end of the tunnel. Also been looking at mobility scooters because I can't stand for long a walk more than about 10 yards. I have a new GP who is brilliant and I saw him for the first time last Friday. CRP and ESR both in excess of 100. He's on to it all and is determined to help me. Can't stop crying and being really pathetic though. 😢. Sorry to be so negative but it's good to offload onto like minded understanding peeps and just writing it down has been quite cathartic. Love and gentle hugs to all. Caroline xxx
