I talked to my doctor this morning.....yep just picked up the cell phone and called her cell...told her about my symptoms and she told me to get some blood work done and urine test. She said that it could be a small flare up due to the tapering off of the prednisone. She had me call her again when I was at the lab so she could tell the lab what tests to do. I know if we move back to the states I would so miss the direct connection you have here with the doctors and how fast tests and such can happen. It is so comforting to know that you can simply email or call your doctor on their cell phones.
So I will wait for test results but for now am going to go with the fact that I am feeling off due to the tapering of prednisone. Thanks to many of you that also sent me emails saying that there can be side effects for this. I am still going out to walk the dogs today and keep well hydrated. I guess my body needs to figure out what is going on and just settle down. Trying hard to remain positive and just know this is all part of the autoimmune thing.
We will visit FIL today. See how he is doing. He was doing well when we saw him yesterday.
Didn't make it out for dinner like we planned last night. I just didn't have an appetite so we canceled. Didn't want to push it. Nice when you have dear friends that understand.
Hope all of you are doing well. Thank you all again for your comments and support. I do so treasure them!
Have a terrific Saturday and week end.
