I hope to flipping goodness he stuck that blooming needle in the right place, because I don't want to go through this blooming agony for nothing!
I have had one "shot" in the wrist and one "shot" in the knee, and it wasn't Vodka!
Typing with a couple of fingers, so I will make this short! Nice man at the Rheumatoid Floor of my local NHS Department store, thinks my hip problems are connected to my knee problem and my knee problem is connected to my foot problem - now here's the word of the Lord!!!
No inflammation - bloods normalish he says - my PV is below 1.72. I have Osteoarthritis in my knee(s), worse in the right than the left. That was my foot pedal knee when operating the egg conveyor belt. Because of the pain in that knee I am walking "funny" - it doesn't make me laugh.
So this is making my hips hurt. I have a bit of damage in the ball of my right foot, which is also affecting my walk...
Wrist is also Osteoarthritis from just too much work! Years of typing on old manual typewriters have taken it's toll n my poor old wrist and digits.
So needle it is then - sorry this is going hurt. Yep, he wasnt wrong... still hurting so I am off to cuddle up underneath my duvet and feel sorry for myself, and hopefull the steroid will take effect very very soon.
Normal positivityness will be resume as soon as possible.
