Hello friends, This is just an update on recent experiences in hospital. My PMR is atypical, bloods always normal, pain that doesn't follow the 'rules', Just over a week ago I was admitted as an emergency to the RSCH. I had a severe infection in the gall bladder as it turned out. My blood results were all over the place including the immovable ESR! Also the PMR pain suddenly began to follow the 'rules' i.e. it behaved as most people seem to experience it, for once. I found this very interesting. Now I am home it is back to my normal pain. which is that, the less I use the muscles the less they hurt. This is not without exception though.
Also over the weekend in hospital the duty Dr came to see me, asked how I was. I said I had a tightness around my head as if I might get a headache soon. This Dr was so on the ball that he immediately began looking for GCA (not found thank heaven) What a good Dr and so well clued in. I wish they were all like that.
Now I'm out but weak as water and with a doubly fudged brain!!! I hope normality returns soon. Wishing everyone a pain free day and a solution to all the problems.
Love from Stella
