This morning I woke up with the usual joint pains in my fingers, knees and foot.
I swallowed my Lanzoprosole pill (with water) then showered, dressed and headed into work...with great difficulty. Even buttoning up my shirt took forever. I expected this to be another rubbish day.
2pm is my usual work lunch break. I decided to eat a sandwich, alongside a pear, some grapes and Apple Juice. Afterwards, I took Naproxen for the first time and continued on working.
At 6pm my knee joints didn't misbehave like they usually do. The pain threshold was low. For the first time in weeks I could actually walk as before. This made me break down in tears. It was nice to feel myself again. I didn't celebrate too much. Maybe me taking the pill was causing a placebo effect?
However, for the rest of the evening I was able to enter/exit the train carriage, walk 2km at a normal pace and walk up/down stairs without struggling.
Had my dinner at 9pm, and took the second pill.
While the joint pain in my hands remains consistent...my feet and knees felt so much better. Its been a long time since I could walk without pains.
Is it the medication or psychological? I don't know...maybe its a bit of both...but I ended my day with a smile and a tear.
Let us see what tomorrow brings...
