I have a new respect for RA sufferers that get RA badly in thier knees. My RA hs no doubt progressed in the knees. I have had my share of knee pain. Even surgeries. Oh my! I was screaming Friday and Saturday morning when I woke up. Well I was in my opinion highly medicated and sreaming was a ridiculas result.
I did get a depo medrol shot Saturday morning and it has helped some. I think I am in for a world of hurt. I am still highly medicated. I have been taking even flexeril nightly. Something that a person with Sjorgren's would not do unless they had to. I have been thinking about skipping the flexeril tonight because of dry mouth and a brain that seems to be on the other side of the planet.
I had no idea that knees could hurt this bad. Shoulders and neck I have had hurt this bad I guess? My ankles are not so happy either. I have been staying active trying to get things in order for a bed bound period of time. That may start tomorrow? The shot is not really going to do the trick this time.
I left my babies last night. School is starting but we had a great summer. We went to the fair and the park. We went swimming and even on vacation. LOL I have no idea how I survived all of that? It was a miricle of miricles. I would really like to go to the park tomorrow but I can feel the swelling coming on and I shall be on the phone with doctors instead.
I spend less time with the kids during the school year because of strep germs ect.. On the brighter side of life the depo medrol did wonders for my sinuses. I really apreciate the relief. Well I am a bit frieghtened of this flare actually. Not that I like any of them. Because this very bylateral knee pain was so awful. It made my throbbing ankles seem like nothing when really they were very bad also.
Maybe I will wake up and it will just be a dream? I guess maybe I could wake up better? The shot maybe could still be workiing?
Well we shall see.
Wishing you all the best!
I know I may regret it but I took the flexeril. My back is swelling even I think. I feel like a ballon that someone is putting too much air into. Arghh! So anyway maybe I can sleep through some of this.
