Managed to get a cancellation yesterday and get in to see my rheumy, I'm Tuesday OZ time! She tells me the sudden menopause from losing both ovaries is the cause. Now I have to go back to my surgeon and see if he'll let me take HRT for a while even if I'm weaned off it over 6 months. Just when I thought I could handle this menopause without more meds! Meanwhile she injected my hips and has told me to wear my splints and rest, plus up my pain meds. So I feel depressed to say the least. I feel in a fog with this pain, I know you've all been there.
Its just such a busy time, end of academic year for me, so I can't not work.
Hopefully the pathology is good and I'm worrying for nothing, the thought of this much pain for months on end is yawning in front of me.
My white blood cells have plummeted again, so I feel a bit like a pin cushion, she won't put me on prednisone but is going to take over the bone density scans, seemingly I can get this for free once a year with RA. So thats a bit of good news.
Sorry I'm all over the place, feeling a bit sorry for myself and then I keep thinking of all you guys with your horrendous backs and necks. Sometimes its all a bit overwhelming. I wish she could have injected everywhere, wrists, feet, thumbs, knees, elbows even my back is sore. Plus I have headaches and a general low grade fever. Flares are the pits....
enough rambling, tell me off for being so self absorbed. Gotta get back in a positive frame of mind, Hope everyone is feeling good today, golitho
