Well i havent posted in a long time. I always seem to post when im down in the dumps. Went to doctors yesterday he started me on Diclofinac (spelling), im hoping it works. Turns out i have a herniated disc in my back thats causing a pinched nerve. Also my Femortal Artery Nerve is pinched from a crappy Angiogram i had done 4 years ago. All on top of the RA from hell !! Ive only had the RA for close to a year now. I was told by the doctor that i need to face reality and deal with the fact that this will be with me for life. sad
