Had the most frustrating appointment with my Consultant. I have had a lot of additional pressures in the last 6 months. Second Cochlar implant and business trip to Australia. Slightly Increased CRP during this time but currently after jet lag and an exhausting trip I have felt I am having a flare. Morning I have serious stiff neck and pain etc. Walked yesterday like I was 90 and did at times whilst away. Heavens it hurt . My Consultant tells me this is no more than aches and pains of old age. told him I am very sensitive to hard beds and chairs and that was a problem whilst away but again in his opinion it is old age nothing to do with PMR. Pressing me to reduce steroids currently on 10 and rubbished the Bristol report reminding me that he was the doctor and told me that these forums are not necessarily helpful. Seems to forget I am the patient and I know what the pain is and what help I need. Last time I see him that is for sure ? Feel very angry . Thank heavens for the forum
