Hello everyone, I know I said the last blog was my last of the year but hey ho here's another.
I have done really well over the few days of Christmas, I fully expected to crash out on boxing day but I didn't.
On Christmas eve I decided to reduce my pred by 1mg as my rheumy nurse wants me too. She did say I could leave it til after christmas but I felt good hence the drop.
I thought I was doing really well but then yesterday evening I suddenly fell asleep without warning. So at 8.15pm I plodded of to bed.
Well I was not expecting to awake to this pain. My neck feet and forearms are swollen and my neck and back along with my legs are painful. I don't know what's hit me to be honest, I have not felt this much pain in a while.
So is it the PMR flaring? or the RA flaring? or is it the reduction in pred? or maybe the comedown from a busy few days even though I was not much busier than a normal weekend.
Well whichever it is I don't like it, and not sure how to proceed. Do I up my pred back up? or do I ride it out for a couple of days or so to let my body get used to the new dose?
Good job we are not having a busy New year, we rarely stay up to see the new year in lol.
Anyway, Happy New Year to all
