Having read Marks brilliant post I thought I would updated on my progress and the long list of things I have bought or treated my PMR too! At this rate it will have cost me more than my sons!
The good news is I am down to 8mg of prednisolone! I had already purchased the pantethine, vitamin b complex vitamin A and Vitamin C so have been taking them. Not that I am advocating them but had them and so thought what the heck! I think if nothing else they may have had a placebo
I have lost 5 lbs but didn't do so well this week! Rewarded myself with wine and chocolate but back on the wagon now!!!
I continue with a fortnightly massage and am trying to walk as much as possible! But working full time gets in the way!
This week I joined Pilates the only good thing was the pain afterwards hid the aches and pains of PMR I have since found out that I may have enrolled in the intermediate class as there was a lot of time doing the PLANK or in my case lying on the floor!!!
I know that some people have problems doing the basics and when I was first diagnosed I could not even bend to put my socks or other essentials on
I sometimes wonder if I have PMR but then I get the lows of exhaustion and the stiffness in joints to remind! I hope I can be free of prednisolone by the end of the year! But I am aware that I am not in control and no matter what I buy to try and keep my PMR happy it can throw a tantrum at any time
But for those who are low I know from experience that knowing things will get better is helpful.
For those who have read my earlier posts I have still not taken my PMR and it's new bike out for a ride or allowed it to use the new picnic backpack I am keeping that as a treat for when it is really well behaved!
Hope everyone has a good weekend
