I am close to 2 years on the PMR journey and the pain has diminished greatly, though still there. What I struggle with and the main cause of my retirement is my brain function. "Uncle Mark" wrote once that he felt physically and mentally he was at about 50%. His answer helped me to feel much better at the time. Then I was at 12 and now at 9 I guess I thought my brain would be feeling better just as my body is . Physically I would say I am at 60% and don't feel as weak as I did before. I am now lifting weights and exercising more. I no longer pull something everytime I try and do sometime physical. I know we are all different but does dosage cause any brain function improvement? For example, it took me 5 minutes to figure out how to post. I have no memory and carry notebooks around with me all day. I don't even try to do more than one thing at a time, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but can also get very flustered if I have to try.
I dread my next Drs. appointment when I have to give a narrative about myself in a cohesive fashion. I don't know how you all do it and write such intelligent posts BTW! Sorting meds, vitamins, etc is very challenging.
Thanks for the rant. I know that many of you totally understand what I am talking about.
Wishing you well,
