Morning all, thought I would blog while I am waiting my half hour after taking the Alendrol Acid.
From Thursday I reduced to 25mg of pred and so far not doing to bad. Friday night was worse, I even had to wake hubby at 3am to push me out of bed so could go the loo. Then he had to help me out of bed at 6.30am. I was quick to have my meds and took a naproxen also which helped tremendously.
I didn't do to much though, only the ironing. By the end of it my knees were painful but neck and everywhere else was good.
I decided that as the naproxen helped in the morning yesterday I would have one before bed to see if it helped me sleep by keeping the pain at bay, and it did
So up at 6.30am with no probs getting out of bed and having the morning meds on empty tummy.
The one problem I am having is my diabetes. My blood sugars are all over the place and even showing in my urine. Got to ring my doc on Weds to chat about my next pred reduction so will mention it again to him. I am in double figures most of the day which is not good.
Hopefully in 3 weeks when I get my new puppy I will get out a bit more so the exercise will help. Here is a pic of my new puppy taken yesterday at 7 weeks old. Just for you all to cue over
