Saw this today and just felt it. I have been doing okay the past week. I had lost 5 lbs but now that I haven't walked the dog, cos of falling and then my arm, I have stalled then gained one. Dr has said going to be very hard for you to lose, cos menopause, inflammation, and the fact that everytime I work out even simple easy slow exercises my inflammation flares and pain gets way worse. It hasn't stopped me from doing it for most part, but yes the month of March wasn't great as not able.
However I do think I can do this, honestly not sure how well, cos I am eating very very clean, no sugar, no grain and yet not losing. I don't know what more to do, I am hoping to learn more and figure more and then get back to moving. I did 5 mins on my recumbent bike today and my knees hurt, that is even with feeling good cos of the prednisone. But I will do 5 again and again till I go to 7. that is what they suggested at group and even though I find it too low and want to do more, I know it will hurt me. So slow and steady turtle. Ironically I love turtles, and butterflies.
I haven't been on puter much cos not able to type. Last day or so hasn't been too bad, and today I did walk allie this afternoon around the block. I wont go out in am or dark cos still too much water that could be black ice. If I fall again any time soon I haven't a clue what would happen. My head still aches a lot more than normal and my elbow and shoulder still not great but improving! that's what counts.
So just a catch up blog and letting you all know, I may not be here lots, but am not down and out, and haven't gained lots and am hiding. I don't do that, I come and bemoan and whine not hide. LOL just not here cos busy on THM FB page and not typing much.
HUGS and be back soon!

Oh I am so so tired............ sleeping in the lazyboy for 4 nights is not conducive to a good nights sleep along with a very sore tender arm. But I did sleep last night much better and my arm is doing a fair bit better, not a lot of ROM opps Range of motion but not as much pain. I had a dr apt to get a prescription filled, and he had my xray and blood work back. all blood work is good other than my C reatactive protein is very high which just means my inflammation is high in my body. Well no surprise to either of us with my shoulder, elbow and my reg. issues. He was also glad I had the apt as my xray was back. I don't have nay noticeable arthritis in that shoulder, but at this time have acute tendonitis with multiple calcium calcifications, which he thinks 2 of them burst. He said that is extreme pain... so yea.
Now his answer was cortisone injections and or oral. I have nixed him on the injections numerous times and he said this time I would like to see something asap and I cant do an injection till tues. so I agreed when he said you have to decide to do something so opted for oral... so off celebrex, on my nexium and then oral cortisone for 5 days tapering 5 more days then off nexium 2 days after. Okay fine. not happy but I have to do something.
I am going to check more info into L gluteamine or whatever after I am done this as abetter inflammation helper.
So just lost 5 lbs and now on something that is notorious for wt gain, oh well I know I can lose it and hope to not even gain in first place! I wil do this, take care of me and get well again.
I have a great helper, hubby has done it all for me, dress me, make meals, etec. but lol can't put an elastic in my hair to hold it back when I was sick. Too funny but oh well. I am hoping to have a shower in the am. and will see if he can dry my hair with the dryer. lol that I know he can. Feel bad as his stress is super high and he is worn out too. Had to get my 88 year old dad drive me to dr today as hubby had an apt with his councellor at same time. So all is well that ends well. Not happy with meds, but happy with no arthritis at this time and that it is feeling better.
Okay now off to get my meds and some gas for snowblower as it is to storm yet again perhaps! lets hope not!

Well better than the past 2 days, may even try to get in the tub this eve for a soak. So cold today, really bitter winds, but we are waiting on the storm of the winter even though it is now spring!? nothing new we always get a winter storm in spring. lol
May go visit the grands tomorrow. Was talking to them on the phone, Thomas says HI Nana, are you coming over to play in my room? bring pepe, no not today maybe tomorrow. OH okay bring pepe bye... ohoh love you lots nana! Eva Hi papa, ( hi eva it is nana) Oh hi nana are you coming to play. lol tomorrow oh tooooo morrow. lol they are sure groing and she is so smart and quick.
So today my leg and arm hurt but not constantly like yesterday, had a dentist apt and lol kept bringing my leg up cos if I laid back it hurt. Rubbing my thigh and then my hand got sore - we both sort of laughed. She is a great hygienist and we always have a good chat.
Not much more, eating well and on plan, losing and feeling good. Have to try to get more exercise than just walking but my arms are too sore to do wts. even 3 lb yesterday I wasn't even able o lift my arm by itself so not messing with them yet.
Okay off to check out stuff and then off here and think I may clean my craft desk and perhaps put the paper stuff away for while and get out some material.

Well lets say I am not here as often as I have been.... been busy doing Trim Healthy Mama, and losing wt and feeling full and satisfied. But the past 3 days the pain has been wicked.... I have new pain lol it is in my thigh, and my shoulder both my L side and feels as if someone Hit me hard with a hammer and left a very very sore bruise. I havent' any idea what happened, I didn't bump or fall etc. and itisnt from my fall 2 wks ago as all that is on the other side and nearly gone! So my thigh is so sore I cant sit, and walk is okay if I am slow but sitting no matter on what or how is bad, as is laying down. It doesn't feel sciatica like but when I stand still like at counter or just standing, I feel my thigh tighten and the pain then nerve pain inmy foot. my arm on outer side upper arm has the same bruised feeling. So wondering if this is fibro... cos isn't arthritis. Anyway got my 10,000 steps yesterday but was hard, today just making it too. But that's okay I only want to get to 10.
Would love to have a bath, but can't lower myself in or get out without my knees cos both arms hurt. Golfers elbow is getting better since using the nitroglycerin patches but still sore at times. I feel ike trying anyway so sore.
Sun shone today, was cold but nice. Snowed laast night and this am, we went in the yard, and then I held onto the fence all the way down the hill for dear life as was all frozen slush as it snowed last eve early. Got there stayed in the field she got no walk.LOL got home and was 700 some steps usually over 15 or 2,000 for our am walk lol . Melted later and we went for a very slow walk. I hope whatever this is leaves. I think I did mention spring for past 4 years hasnt' been nice on my body. And we are in for a wicked snow storm middle of the week. rain, snow, wind a noreeaster........ no wonder I hurt.
But been doing well and in good moods for most part. A spat with hubby but that is over and fine lol Hoping to find some new sneakers on sale as can't afford 140-150 a pr for New Balance that fit my crazy foot. darn.......
Okay gotta go move as hurting to sit, walk and then going to bed. NIGHT all. oh down 5 lbs!!!
