I am so frustrated with my shoulder! I am still in pain and have not been able to go to Curves! I have been back to my doctor and have had an xray (that was fine) and then on Thursday I had a MRI. Yesterday I heard that the MRI shows arthritis! I am now waiting to go see a rheumatologist. I live in a small town and the only rheumatologist up here is not in network, but does take my insurance. So now my doctor is putting in an application for me to see this specialist in network - they said it could take days - 2 weeks to get the approval! Meanwhile I am chugging back motrin. I am trying to keep moving even though it is hurting! Does anyone who has arthritis got any advice for me! Is there something diet wise that I could be doing too? I am open to any suggestions! I read on the internet that I should keep active, should I wait to see the rheumatologist before trying to go back to Curves? I have not been very good at loggin either, but it is time to climb out of this rut, this pain is not going to get me down! I am done with feeling sorry for myself, now it is time to get going!!!
