Evening all..... haven't been around cos nothing to write about, Been going for longer walks in the am, and pm, with the dog cos weather is less slippery and wet. She and I enjoy it although have had to stop and rub my legs but so far no falling.
Had my dr appointment today, we discussed diff. drugs and such and all the ones he has tried and they just don't work for me. He did have a strange suggestion as to my golfers elbow - nitroglycerin patches!!!!! I said what myheart is fine. anyway said they are having great success with these and plantar facitis. And it is similar so if I want to try so since the pharmacists has been able to get a generic type I will try. I can't afford the other right now, yes I have insurance but have to pay the amt and get it back and I haven't got it to pay.
So they had to order it in do will get it tomorrow. Hope it works as it is so sore.
Next apt he said we are going to deal with your foot. Not sure what but told him the pain is wicked and I nearly fall in the am. cos between that ankle and foot I am not stable.
Was a good appointment with more discussed than that. Anyway see him in 2 months.
Have to get off puter and get a bit o stuff done as tomorrow am, we go to the library with Thomas. Going to be fun for sure. I am probably more excited than he is LOL
I am very tired today, seems to come and just be exhausted, told the dr I can be fine then nearly falling over keyboard so tired. he said that is fibro tired too. Okay so go have a rest.
As for now, going to go rest for abit, maybe I will take my book and go down to dads chair. lol really relax then come do a bit of tidy in kitchen. didn't get all I wanted made today. Oh well..... tomorrow.
HUGS all and Caz hope you can figure a good remedy! HUGS

Sigh, think hubby is right. I am sure that I have hurt my elbow more after doing my day 3 thing yesterday. Nothing hurt till last night in bed and then wasn't able to sleep well cos of pain and today cant move my lower arm out to the side at all, as long as it is in front of me and not doing much not too bad. the pain when it comes is wicked, and I did nothing diff than the upper strength ones but cos they weren't hurting at the time I figured it was okay cos so far whatever movement I do that makes my elbow hurt I stop. So iced 3x so far, 2 Tylenol and lots of help. Can't get my boots on again, couldn't open the door and the truck door and seat belt HA nope. So glad I have supper made, was crock pot stew made and sat to marinate.
Think I am have a rest or nap too, feeling very tired and hubby says I sound beat, probably the pain. I would compare this pain to when my knee was at its worst just a diff type.
So off I go to ice and rest.

Boy we certainly are doing well at the Olympics this year!!! GO CANADA!!!! and I am doing well at my own Olympics, doing as well as I can and as much as I can. So far so good, tomorrow is rest day. I am really pleased, dr will be glad I am not just sitting. I still have my worries about what def. lawyer would say but hey they don't see how slow or little I do and how much I ice etc. after. I can't not do what is good and healthy while I wait for a settlement. I still worry about it though, although not near like I was at the beginning.
So now have a bit of tidy to do in kitchen, then will stop, sit , rest, and do more. that is the order of the day or most days. lol I hope I don't have one as bad as wed. for another long while. And I am seeing even more how my pain is constant but how you really do think oh it is just that pain after a while, I can't move easier or more but just know the pain is there.
Okay had a good day and now hoping for a good eve. going to have a sauna and shower later Hoping it will get the kinks out a bit
. HUGS all

Yesterday was the worst pain in a good 3 wks. Everywhere hurt, I wondered if it was partially the 5 mins of exercise I did, thought no it wasn't hard. So woke this morning to my reg. pain. Ironic how you can get used to pain and even though it is as bad, you are used to it so it doesn't seem it. Also had that reiterated at my chronic pain classes.
So today was day 2 and I got it done. The stretching thing after is really a great one. I was impressed that they do all the body. Told hubby he should watch the stretching one.
Anyway better pain today, and better mood because of it. Still not doing well with elbow and foot and butt but at least not a headache to add to it all.
HUGS and off I go to ice now. Being precautionary for sure. I want to get this wt off and move easier if not better so dont' want to give up cos of worse pain. And as I keep reminding myself and others that say don't.... dr says worse thing is to not move.
