rolleyes  I saw my rheumy friday the visit for the most part was as normal. I did have one complaint that he looked into. I've been having severe lower back pain since june nothing seems to make it go away.I first thought maybe it was the kidney stone but thats not it. My rheumy took xrays and came back in the room to inform me it was not my arthritis,but i have degenerative disk disease (oh joy) not. He could see the disk L5 has been damaged by this disease. The fun never ends does it. Later that day i saw my gi and he's really pussing humira this is the third time he's brought it up. He knows i have active disease right now, but i'm not having any gut issues so once again i put him off. My biggest problem with starting humira is i just don't want to be on any more drugs right now already take a boat load of meds.Then there's the cost i'm still paying for remicade i was on two years ago. I hope i'm making the right decision and if my gut starts to act up i guess i'll do the humira. I just needed to rant a little thanks for listening. ((((((hugs))))))

No rest for the wicked, AuntKay! You musta been a real humdinger in your former life!!  nono tongue yeah
 
((hugs))) I'm glad the gut is behaving itself, at least. But sure sorry the ole back is giving you so much grief! That mail route doesn't help w/that! Didn't you say you're using a RHD postal vehicle rather than your own?? I can tell you using your own LHD vehicle would make things even worse for your back situation!! Been there, done that! Ooooh! The charlie horses in the left butt cheek THAT can cause in addition to aggravating the back! (((hugs))) again just 'cause you need and have earned them.
 
Wish we could do more for you!  yeah

Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

C2 your right the route doesn't help the old back. I worked yesterday and was almost in tears from the pain. I'm driving my own RHD jeep cherokee and that jeep alone is a major stresser. Thanks for the hugs and i hope things are better for you (((((hugs))))) back .
