Hi all, hope you are all on the up with this new weather we are having lol. I say new cos it's been a while since we last saw this heat thing called the Sun.
I have been away from it all for a while as not had a good past few weeks I am afraid.
Some days I can barely walk. Now I am not sure this is the PMR and I don't think it ties in with RA either so I am guessing the Fibro bit is having it's say.
My CRP is still rising even though the rheumy added hydroxychloroquine to take along with the MTX. I go back in a month so will see what he thinks. My CRP is at 32 at present.
One good thing though, my diabetes is under control at the moment with a hb1ac of 6.4 which is fab.
Last weds I had had enough of all the pain and I increased my pred from 15mg back up to 20mg. I have still not been 100% and I doubt that is likely any time soon but I did feel more able to do stuff. I even went on a shopping trip with my mum to look for a hat and a bag for a wedding I have in 5 weeks time. I didn't get owt but had a lovely few hours out with my mum.
I will reduce back down to 15mg on Weds and see how I go.
On a more private note and not PMR, I have managed to get my 14yr old special needs son in to a great special school in Melton Mowbray and he will be starting in Sept. So this will leave just me and Tegan my 7yr old daughter at home. She will remain home educated for now but if I get worse then along to school she will go. Though right now the school run would be hard for me.
Still getting out and about on my wheels which are now plastered with white and black stickers of german shepherds lol. Well I gotta make it my own ain't I?
My boy Harley is now 10 months old so hopefully will stop growing soon lol.
Right best go for now, I need to go get some cash ready to have highlights in my hair tomorrow so I can look more like my old self
Then later a soak in the hot tub to sooth my aches away.
