i wish i could put on there the sketch he did for me.
HE listened to all what i had to say and i was verry calm for onece the wife said
i asked if i sounded to much like i was a hypo condriac HE SAID KNOW.
HE SAID THANKS FOR BRINGING YOUR BLOOD ALONG AND THAT YOU GOT CHECKED OUT WITH A NEURO FOR MS.
can i look at your hands
bet you have also had pains on the top of your spin near your bum havent you i said how you know that he said cos you SI joint will be inflamed also. (how the hel did he know that I DIDNT MENTION IT)
hE THEN STARTED SKETCHING THINGS ON A PAPER IN THE 3 CIRCLES HE DREW rumi.lupus diseses ans spondyloarthpathy enthsihs.
RIGHT JOHN I KNOW YOUR GRAN HAD YOU SAY RUMI WELL IF YOU HAD THAT YOU WOULD NOT HAVE SWELLING IN THAT AREA OF YOUR FINGER OR THAT NODUAL IT WOULD BE SYMETRICAL AND RETAIN ITSELF TO THAT AREAS SYMETRICALY.
NOW LETS LOOK AT LUPUS WELL IM SURE YOU DONT HAVE THAT
SO THEN WE HAVE ONE CIRCLE LEFT SPONDYLOARTHPATHY.
now you have had this for the 3 rd time first two time how long to clear it well i said took 9 months to start feeling somthing like and the second time well a bit more.
so he then drew 3 gaphs one age rang 20 to 100 years old
HE SAID FIRST TIME YOU GO UP ON THE GRAPH THE IMUNE SYSTEM STARTS TO SORT ITSELF AND YOU COME DOWN 2ND TIME YOU GO UP ON THE GRAPH HIT THE TOP START TO COME DOWN USUALLY THIS IS A BIT LONGER but maybe you where used to what was happening a bit.
AS YOU GET OLDER THE STEEP GRAPH GETS LARGER USUALLY TAKES MAYBE 1 1/2 YEARS AS WE GET OLDER.
NOW IF YOU HAD NOT COME HERE TODAY IN IM NOT SAYING THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED I DONT KNOW BUT IT MAY HAVE TOOK YOU 2 YEARS TO FEEL A BIT BETTER COMMING DOWN ON THE GRAPH.
Somthing in your system started this like stomac or somthing else and your imune system response was to kill the invader. unfortunatly your system sometimes carries on killing it dosnt attack the joints thats why mri and xray showed same joint thicknes of cartlidge.
what it does do is attacks the ligament areas of those joints which in turn can affect the carlidges cos they are not opperating right at the ligaments area.
The main pain was infront of the knee cap more so than under at first i said yes thats because of the fluid build up you where having that pain.
RIGHT GIVE ME YOU HAND presses on nuckle count 1234 white gone back to red normal blood flow.
PRESSES on 1st joint on little finger which contains more ligaments to bend 1 wowe back to red again see thats inflamation in that erea.
so john we have 2 options here to take
WE CAN ADMINISTER A GENOLOUGE INJECTION TO TRY OTHERWISE WE GO TO THESE I THINK HE SAID SULPUR LIKE TABLET.
I SAID WHAT WOULD YOU DO HE SAID I WOULD GO FOR THE INJECTION IN YOUR BUM FIRST AND LETS SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
THEN I WILL WRITE TO YOU AND YOUR DOCTOR and i also whant you to email me direct on what happens in the next weeks or so the web address of me at hospital will be on the letter. YOU WILL FEEL HOT FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS OR SO.
jAB IN BUM. FELT LIKE I HAD A BOIL ON IT GOING HOME IN THE CAR.
so its watch this space in the next couple of days cos i feel a bit wierd this morning.
SO HOW COME THE RUMI AT HOSPITAL DIDNT EXPLAIN THIS TO ME AND WHO IS RIGHT WE WILL HAVE TO SEE.
hope i wrote this in a way that you all understand.
what are your views?
think this cost me with injection about 270 quid
