Went to see my consultant on Friday, having brought the appointment
forward due to being in so much pain.
Two months before she had injected my knee and it made hardly any change,
then my doctor gave me the bottie injection about three weeks back and so far
still in pain.
I was explaining to her that I am unable to walk far and mornings see me crawling,
also my shoulder and upper arms are experiencing extreme pain so much so I am
unable to raise my arms up and away from my body, typing this is hard.
She felt my shoulders, looked at my knee then said the words that really peed me off.
"Let me see your hands".
I snapped back, "whoever I come to see all they are interested in are my hands!!
there is nothing WRONG with my hands, I have had that knuckle and that bump
for years, it is the rest of me that hurts"
She then proceeded to tick a chart on how my hands look (scream!!!)
I came home and found a knee support which has helped and I am off out to
buy one for my shoulder and elbow.
It seems to me one has to DIY.
Rant over, it is raining again here so hardly an uplifting day, again!!
