Thank you Flopsie, and your family is in my prayers right now as well. I have read up on the posts here about your precious grandson and I will not stop praying until we hear good news ok? Stay strong girl, it will be ok. I'm hanging in there today, woke up feeling a lot less pain...just in my fingers majorly intense! So I guess that is much better than what I was going thru last night w/the leg aches. Phew.....
Scolding taken, will know better next time!
Thank you Curly and Ducky,
I got to feeling a little better and then boom, my period started! *Sorry for the graphic-ness of that! Could there be some 'grander' connection between hormones and our pain? That would make a good topic for a chat w/all women sometime...and also it'd be cool to have an expert come to speak, like I dont know, a GYN person or something....anyway...just rambling here.
Well, Ducky I sure hope they've fixed those roads out there! I can't handle bumps and potholes too well! Not w/this pain! But thanks for sharing about that...now I'm warned and can at least pack an extra seat pillow in the van! LOL
Curley, hang in there, you'll get to that appointment w/new rheumy sooner than you think and hopefully he'll be the best one yet. I sure hope your flare settles down soon. It must reallllly suck to have both RA and OA! I do not envy you that joint pain....but will keep you (and all) in my prayers that we're all feelin' better soon!
Thank you everyone for replying and putting up w/my vent! You're truly the greatest support system I have!
