I saw Braveheart this afternoon, he has not been well, too much NHS stress. I tried to lighten his load by my jolly banter and more importantly his Christmas bottle of champagne. I quickly slid over that I had defied me by not taking the Asoprazine and he didn’t seem to mind because my inflammatory blood markers are completely normal. I told him about my screaming legs, he examined me thouroughly and said I had some restricted hip movement. He thought I could have Osteoarthritis and said it was definitely not PMR, I also skated over my mishap with the roids. I went downstairs for an x ray that showed three spinal bones are affected , the screaming pain is fasciitis, a reason cleverly suggested by PMRO and Dorset Lady sometime ago. What I am getting is referred pain in my hips and legs. I have to be grateful I have a diagnosis and more so that PMR is not the problem so I can continue to taper however this Osteoarthritis is a new one for me, he says the only treatment is analgesia, so medical cannabis here I come. Should go down nicely with the champagne.
I shall raise a glass or three to you when I am sailing the high seas at Christmas.
Thank you for all your support and being able to laugh with me.🥂🥂🥂x
