I can pretty much count on one hand so far the "bad" days I have had so far this month Feb.
The worry, the stress of no job nor prospects, new medical bills coming in from muscle biopsy, unemployment benefits & the hoops they expect you to jump through..whoa
Having some emotional upheavals here to say the least. New symptoms of pain in my thumb joints wrists and ankles, night sweats, no real sleep pattern...still having muscle pain especially in my legs and hips.
And just overall being tired. And crying spells...crying - this is so NOT me!
Did my 1st blood work up since getting on Imuran, follow up with Rheumo on the 16th. Side effects have been tolerable I guess, but feel no relief without pain meds.
Did some yard work over the weekend, just tidying up my potted plants, pulling a few weeds in a rock garden...that kept me in bed for 24 hrs. afterwards.
Speaking of muscle biopsy-the incision has "still" not healed after 45 days. At one end it has a deep
scab that show a few stitches still attached to it, do not want to remove the scab & leave a deeper scar?
Will have Rheumo take a look, but could it be the immune suppressant Imuran hindering the healing?

Just checking in, haven't heard from any posts in a while, hope everyone is doing well?
Thanks for the ear.
