Sorry I have been away for so long. I hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected. I hope I haven't missed too much.
From beginning of March to end of May I had managed to get down to 9mg.
Towards end of May I could feel that my symptoms were returning and reluctantly went back to 10mg as we were preparing for a UK trip.
UK trip was lovely, Thea was gorgeous and we really enjoyed being with the family for a few days.
My PMR wasn't brilliant despite 10mg and a couple of times I increased to 12.5 (I had no 1's with me) to try and improve things. I am not used to being busy, on the go all the time and having to get going so early in the day.
Upon our return we found we had 2 very sick sheep....so a few days of sheep wrestling took place (journeys to vets and injections to give).....so our recovery time took longer than usual.
I sent for samples of CBD oil (in a bottle with dropper) and have been using it for 12 days during which time I have not needed any other analgesia (steroids aside).
When you consider I was taking Paracetamol 2 x per day for 2+ years and sometimes this included Codeine I am greatly relieved. The neck pain (was it myofascial?) is gone (it has been gone for a 6 weeks of more). This morning I had to wait until 10h30 to take my 1st CBD oil as one must leave a gap of 2 hours between meds. My back was very achy as we're preparing for visitors arriving so I am doing housework. Within 10 mins of taking my oil....my back pain had gone. When pay day comes I will be ordering more.
The photo was taken at a nature reserve in Lincolnshire and Thea is wearing granddad's hat. I have asked for a copy to be printed so we can frame it.
