Today was my day off.
I woke up a little late but was pleasantly surprised to find my knee ache levels were low, although my fingers were a little stiff. I could follow my morning routine without pain...gripping my toothbrush wasn't a problem, walking down the stairs wasn't a chore, sitting down for my late breakfast was comfortable.
Took my Lansoprazole (30mg)...then booked an appointment to chat with my GP about the medication.
The GP advised me that I only need to take 1 Lansoprazole a day - and 2x Naprozen (To be taken twice a day with food) . So I will follow that regime until I see my Rheumatologist.
At this time, the stiffness in my fingers was gone. I felt like a normal person again, so went for a lunch at my local Italian (took my Naprozen) then headed to Holland and Barrett to see if I could take something to also aid with my joint pains (and help rebuild/strengthen my cartilage)
The shop assistant advised me to try Glucosamine - Chondroitin & MSM tablets. So bought this.
I ended up walking around for 3.5 km - no pain. I'm almost tempted to return to the gym but I will wait for the Rheumatologist to scan my joints and confirm if I have RA.
