I woke up on Saturday night with an achey ankle. I don't remember twisting my ankle but have been limping and even got out my old cane. Feel like an old "crip," in fact my cubicle neighbor at work called me a Crip (in a good natured way, though). Then that made my right foot/ankle hurt and my knees, and then, of course, my back and finally my neck got into the act. I haven't had a flare up of my fibromyalgia or arthritis for almost three years now so I am dumfounded by this as I don't know what brought it on. It could be a lot of things, the most likely culprit is my recent lack of exercise and my weight creeping up and just wear and tear on my joints. I have an appointment with orthopedist on Thursday. In the mean time I am "taking it easy" and going to gym and exercising in the whirlpool. Hope this is just a muscle strain.
