I thought that I was coping quite well with my PMR/GCA but after a year of this each flare up seems to get worse. I am currently finding the pain in my legs hips neck knees etc sheer hell and the sweating is horrendous.
Now I have been told that my blood sugars are high and that I may be heading for diabetes and just had a phone call asking me to make an appointment to see my Doctor regarding the results of my bone scan (the nurse hinted that something was wrong when she looked at the images but said she could not tell me anything)
I have remained cheerful and tried to hide things from my friends and family but this morning I was sitting in a traffic jam and felt overwhelmed by it all and could,nt stop the tears flowing.
i am not doing so well at the moment and even feel the odd one out sometimes as a lone male with this illness.
I know that I will have to discuss these issues with a Doctor but I am so sick (sorry about the pun) of going to the Doctors and the hospital.
Sorry just wanted a whinge and connect to those who understand what I am going through.
