Still in considerable pain. Can't put my feet down to the floor as they are so painful and swollen. Shoulders (both) are letting me know they are there and I have agonising pain in my groin on the left side which spreads right round and down my leg. Makes it very difficult to even walk so limping badly on that side.Also my leg is swollen and hot but does go down at night with resting. I have had this happen before but on the right side and it takes 2/3 days to settle down again. Think I will need to get my circulation booster out as I do find that helps. Still getting very little sleep and what sleep I get is not restful so waking up exhausted and wishing I could stay in bed for the day.
Hands at least have gone down but are still stiff, and knuckles still swollen and painful but wrists not as hot as they were although my knees are giving off heat like an oven. Enbrel day today so hoping that will help. the MTX yesterday didn't help at all so had to rely on Nurofen to control the pain and inflammation.
My friend came to supper last night and I did a shepherds pie which was simple and we had left over Alabama Rock pie for dessert with cream.
Going to try and have a quiet day today. The dishwasher is on as I forgot to put it on last night and I need to get some washing in as well but don't really feel like doing anything. Should have gone into work today but had to ring in to say not coming as felt so rough. It took me an hour to get going this morning. Had to put the hoover round yesterday as both dogs moulting and enough hair picked up to stuff a cushion. Haven't done the upstairs - that can wait I think. Cleaner not in this week either.
Now worrying what else may be wrong with the pains in my leg, as well as being called to an earlier appt with my consultant following the x-ray on my shoulder. Even thinking it might be bone cancer then common sense tells me if it was serious, there would have been urgent phone calls from GP, consultant etc. so can't be serious. Really feel like death warmed up - the sun is out so hoping it might be a bit warmer today although the heating is on in the house. Moans over. LavendarLady x
