After 2 and a half months since I fractured my tibia and fibula above the left ankle, I am walking again, slowly but surely. I still have a long ways to go with physical therapy and strengthening my leg muscles and ankle. This is the "baby steps" period.
These last few days I am having intestinal difficulties and headaches. Perhaps, it is from all of the stress my body is saying, "Whoa!" The physical manifestations always seem to appear at the end of the road.
I have had lots of muscle and joint pain everywhere in my body. I don't know if this is from the PMR, fibromyalgia, or sitting for 2 months. My sed rate and CRP are normal for the first time in years. I'm now on 5 mg of Prednisone and the Actemra for the GCA once a month.
I've learned a lot these past few months. There many wonderful people who have supported and cared for me. My husband and a dear friend have been my principal caregivers during this time. I am so thankful for everyone who has encouraged me during this time.
