I've written quite a bit in the questions section so won't repeat it here. I have atypical PMR and osteoarthritis in my spine. The clinic at our new hospital was running over an hour late! All the test results were in - a few odd results but nothing really significant - apart from the fact that I must NOT take added vitamins and calcium!
She prescribed three new medications - azathioprine (a steroid-sparing medication, in the hope that I can decrease my prednisolone to 5mg or less over a period), Arcoxia for pain relief (probably will only be needed every three days) and lidocaine plasters for back pain. The radio-frequency ablation has settled my sciatica, but I am having more thoracic back pain at present - which will not be improved by cage-cleaning, which is very necessary!
I now have the results of my MRI - done in 2010, for which I had never been told the results! I'm putting all the results for everything on my computer now.
I'm glad it's cooler today. I'm in a procrastinating mood - not unusual - and feeling very tired.
