Hi all, how are you? Not in to much pain I hope.
I have had a funny old week to be honest. I came down another 1mg of pred last Monday and was expecting to be in pain and out of sorts on Friday. Friday cam eand went and I was great. Then Saturday appeared and well to say I was not myself is an understatement.
Hubby came home from work and had to do the kids food and mine, I just could not put my finger on how I felt. Was it the PMR or the RA or even the diabetes? Who knows but thank goodness it only lasted that day.
Sunday I got up great again and went for a walk with hubby and both dogs for an hour. Hubby then prepped the veg for the roast to which I then cooked.
Yesterday I was in a lot of pain and you could see my muscles swollen in my neck. I could hardly turn it all day. Today not to bad just a little pain but I was sure I was not going to increase the pred. I will see how I go for this week but might have to forget another drop for a couple of weeks.
Finally got my March app for rheumy. Not sure what he will do but this MTX is not doing much apart from me losing my hair. So an increase in folic acid to 1 5mg tab 6 days a week thus shooting my sugar levels back up after being under control. Folic acid it appears contains lactose and glucose. So high sugar levels or loss of hair? Which would you choose?
I went for my monthly bloods yesterday and the nurse filled in my MTX booklet. My CRP is still 24 so obviously MTX not doing alot as I thought. However a very strange HB level at 26. My son (an ICU nurse) said it must be a lab cock up so will ring for yesterdays tests at the end of this week to see what it is now.
Right that's me for now, tired so off to the land of nod hopefully.
Keep smiling everyone, I am as it's my 31st wedding Anniversary tomorrow though I will be surprised if I even get a card from hubby let alone anything else
