Good morning everyone, it's a beautiful sunny morning here in Scotland. Not feeling so sunny myself as GP phoned yesterday as my blood results showing deterioration in my kidneys again. Had RA for over 10 years, OA for many more. Have atrial fibrillation and last year developed femoral nerve pain, MRI showed multiple disc protrusions throughout my spine one of which causing the nerve pain. I have been on pregabalin since then with really good results. Apart from thinking my Entracept is no longer working as feet and hands constantly sore, I've been pretty happy. Now to stop my very low dose diuretic, reduce pregabalin and probable referral to a renal specialist. Oh and I'm anaemic again despite eating really well as I'm dieting, Slimming World, nearly 2 stone off, lots to go. Talked about getting cocky and getting kicked down. Mind you whilst on the phone to the GP my beautiful grandson of 22 months walked in, lovely T shirt and shorts sporting a natty pair of green wellies. Wish I could have taken a picture, so cute, at least I had a smile in the midst of bad news.
