Well we have had a hell of a couple days. My hubby was taken ill on Monday(well he had been ill for days) I called the paramedics to him and it turns out he has had an allergic reaction to a blood pressure drug he had been put on,so they said to get him to the drs asap to get them changed straight away. So i got through and the lovely lady on there who knows us got him in to see a dr yesterday morning and she gave him another drug at a low dose and to see how he is in a weeks time and after the blood test this week. So he didn't feel well all day yesterday and he didn't start the night very well and we both ended up down here,but he went back to bed and i think he has had some fairly peaceful sleep.

I stayed down here last night after struggling to sleep through pain and worry over hubby tossing and turning next to me. We both came down and after a spell he went back and i snuggled down in my recliner. I am in a lot of pain with my neck and now my shoulder is joining the party.Most of the pain is down my right side which is where my RA started. I am going to the doctors this morning so we will see what she has to say,but i don't expect much to be honest.xxxxx

Hope the new low dose drugs work for H Sylvi. Did you eventually get some sleep on your recliner? Lack of it on top of pain makes everything even worse. RA started on my right side too. What a worry for you both. Rest up! You and H will be your colourful selves again soon xxx

Wishing you both wellness very soon. Xxx

So sorry to hear this Sylvi. I hope he's recovered somewhat by now. I've been in exactly the same situation, my h responded the same to a change in his BP med, so know it can be really concerning. His GP did just the same & he's been fine since... well as far as that med is concerned so hope your dear hubby will be too. x

My day goes from bad to worse,my scooter ran out of juice on the way home so i had to get off it and wheel home,got into the estate and rang hubby and he said he would walk up to meet me to help,but by then the two postmen stepped in one drove me home and the other with help from hubby wheeled it home. I thanked them profusely and said if they ever wanted a cuppa when their round to call in i will happily make them one. Hubby is starting to recover thank goodness.

I had been to the drs and she has added amitrptaline to the mix to see how i go and to see her in a month.

Thank you all for your concern over hubby and i really appreciate that there are such kind people here and in the wider world.xxxx
