Picked up some sort of virus after two weeks in Lanzarote and have had an horrendous week, still recovering. Saw the doc on Monday and had bloods taken. He rang to say CRP of 82 and wasn't sure what was the best thing to do. ESR results weren't back so we agreed he would ring me on Friday to see how I was and discuss the full results. I am getting better, as the joint pain is now finally relaxing, and even managed to go to lunch with friends yesterday. It was a bit of a struggle and I had to go to bed for a couple of hours when we got back. Totally fed up with this now and just want some energy back. Still on the weird regime of pred @ 16mg one day and 10mg the next alternating daily along with 400mg of hydroxyculroquine.
