The latest in a long list of things, I was settled on 10mg pred for quite a while, banged my leg on the caravan step which turned into cellulitis, started to reduce to 9mg without too many problems, had a sore eye in June when i saw my rhumy who got me referred to ophthalmology who diagnosed a dendretic ulcer. That was painful and lasted a couple of weeks, since then I had been ok ish so decided to reduce to 8mg using the slow slow method but at 8mg couldnt get rid of the aches in my shoulders but kept at it for a couple of weeks to see if it would settle. Then I had a really stressful, crappy week at work and ended up in real pain in arms, shoulders and knees and my twitchy eye muscle back which is really annoying if nothing else, so increase back to 10mg becoming pain free again within 2 days. So was walking back from town on Wednesday with hubby and grandson and missed the curb edge and went over on my ankle. Hobbled around in pain for a couple of days then went to A&E who potted me up and sent me off with a pair of crutches, tried to go into work on Friday but never realised how hard using crutches is, and now have pulled muscles in my stomach and both shoulders and am fit for nothing and feeling very sorry for myself! Back at orthopaedics on Monday for a scan od my achillies tendon and further potting, and guess what? Was due to fly to spain in 3 weeks, another great holiday as an invalid. Going to see if I can get a Madge-mobile!
