My internet has been down... *Which is why I haven't been lurking around these boards lately* But it'll be up probably Monday or Tuesday... Anyway, I had my visit with the gynecologist... They're going to do an ultrasound on me in a few weeks... The gynecologist really thinks my problem is with my bowels, though... because of my Crohn's disease...
 
I also scheduled an appointment with a primary care doctor, which will be this Tuesday... I wanted to try and find a doctor that specializes in bones... or joints... or something... because I've been having problems (mostly with my hips *especially my hips*, knees, ankles (especially my right ankle... it's been very bothersome... and then when I slipped on some ice back in the winter time, seems like it got worse), and my lower back... sometimes my shoulders, elbows, and wrists, but it's the lower area stuff that bothers me the most)... but... had too much trouble... Figure the primary doctor can get me all checked out and everything... and then, if I need a referral or something, he can make one...
 
And I still have to call my GI doctor next week... Let him know how I'm doing... I've been doing a little better tummy-wise... Increasing my fiber seems to have helped some... I don't feel as cramped, and I've been having a bowel movement or two every day... I'm still having sharp, stabbing pains every now and then, though...
 
Woke up at 4 AM today because of it... I'm glad I'm doing a little better, though... Some improvement is better than no improvement... and definitely better than getting worse...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Oh! Forgot to mention... The prednisone is driving me crazy... I'm on 40 mg of it right now...


And I've got acne everywhere... I've been able to take care of the acne on my face a little bit... but...


I have acne on my shoulders, on my back, and on my chest... It's ridiculous... I feel like Pimplezilla... //@.@\\'...

I'm glad you are doing a little better. When do you get to taper the Prednisone. Are you able to sleep? Prednisone kept me up all night!

Dunno... Guess I'll find out when I call the doctor... And yeah... I've been able to sleep... I take the prednisone early in the day so it doesn't bother me at night much...


*Occasionally, if I take it later than normal, I will have problems going to bed...*
