(by the way, we named the kitten Luna).
I saw the rheumy Friday. He said I’ve tried most of the medications there are supposed to help fibro and that I need to try and push through the pain and fatigue and exercise. I really feel like some of the pain isn’t the fibro (although he said it is), like in my knee, hip, and foot. Well, I know the foot is plantar fascilitis pain still. But he said a year or so ago that I had arthritis in my knee and in the last visit said it was fibro pain…so I don’t know. Normally he’s the best doctor I see. I told him when I try to exercise (even just stretch) it’s hard to walk for a week or so. He just said I have to try and keep exercising. That’s all well and good, but is he going to be the one to carry me up the stairs at work when I can’t walk up them?
He prescribed me Zanaflex. He said to start at one pill at first, but I took that last night and it didn’t really do much so I’ll try two pills tonight.
I’m tired of not being able to do anything physical. Even walking around the grocery store is very hard. Painful and exhausting.
