Hi all, hope you are all doing good.
Yesterday I dropped another 1mg so now on 18mg. I am doing 1mg every 2 weeks.
I have got up with very stiff arms and knees this morning but I don't think it is the drop of 1mg. I think it is more to do with the walking the dogs every day which is new to me. I am enjoying it though as it is half hour with my hubby, just us 2 and the dogs. And it WILL do me good in the long run
I had bloods done yesterday which included the usual CRP but also the one you all talk about, I think it's ESR or ERS. My doc says it is better for the markers for PMR than the CRP if that makes sense to you. These were all done as I am off next Tues to see the rheumy for the first time and he will have th eresults so won't waste time doing it all when there. I have been told to expect bad news on my hb1ac though as the pred is raising my blood glucose, so will see.
On a different note, I have done 2 of the tote bags so that's £6 already going to PMRGCAuk.
I am now being asked for T-shirts so I am in the stage of sourcing them at a good price but at the moment reluctant to bulk buy as don't want to be stuck with lots of t-shirts.
All this from just doing bags for my grandkids for xmas It then went on to Santa sacks and now charity bags, it's great and I am enjoying doing them.
