I have GCA and PMR, and am taking Prednisone 40 mg. Today I was driving out of a large shopping parking lot and hit a car that was turning in to the parking lot. I can't
remember much of the details of the collision, except that I could not back up the car as my bumper was attached to the passenger door of the other car.
I immediately got out of the car to see if the driver was O.K. Fortunately, she was not injured. I started crying as I felt so badly about the damage to her passenger door, and just the fact that I hit her car! She was very kind, and concerned weather I was injured.
The fire department came to pull our cars apart. The policeman came to write the report. He did not cite me, but told us to each call our insurance companies.
I just kept shaking, and the tears flowed.
Since arriving home, I had a lot of pain and stiffness in my neck and back, I took some strong pain med., and used a hot water bottle on my neck and upper back.
l am concerned whether or not I was experiencing some brain fog during the accident
I returned several days ago from an 8 day family reunion in Seattle which was wonderful but exhausting.
I hope all of today' s trauma will not cause a flare up. I will have an Epsom salt bath tonight. Any other suggestions are welcome.
Happy New Year dear people. You are all so supportive and helpful. May your New Year be full of blessings.
