Have been browing on here and read something about massages being good/not good with PMR and now I can't find the posts! I am approaching a "big 0" birthday next month (not many of those left, this will be my 80th!), and I have two very good friends who want to treat me to some pampering, on two different occasions! Aren't I lucky to have friends like this?! However, I am wondering about whether simple massages to the neck and feet would have an adverse affect on the PMR as I mentioned at the beginning of this. Can anyone tell me whether I should indulge and just enjoy my first ever massages, please?
As a PS to my recent posts re painful fingers and a flare reducing 9/8mg, just to report that the flare has eased from upper arms and shoulders in the last two weeks being on 10 mg, but leaving me still with slightly stiff fingers in both hands and a little stiffness in outer thighs each morning. Had a blood test yesterday and ESR up at 57 but "nothing to worry about". (It was at 120 at onset nearly three years ago, so I guess 57 is an improvement!) Still resisting going higher than 10 mg so will hang in there for a bit longer, I think, unless you lovely experts here would advise differently, maybe zapping the remains of the flare with 11 or 12 mg? Any advice welcome and thank you.
