So this morning I got my appointment through to have the steroid injections in my back, it’s next Monday. It can’t come soon enough! I just hope they work, I’m sick of taking morphine with it not doing anything. Hopefully, after that, my GP will finally put me on some anti-inflammatory.
If any of you have any tips on how to manage spinal arthritis please let me know! I’ll try anything!
I’m currently waiting for a new armchair and waiting to get my wheelchair adjusted. They say that movement is best but when you’re wheelchair-bound, that kind of goes out the window. It pisses me off that my body is so complicated!
I have anxiety about going outside just in case it’s cold or wet and I flare up! It’s ridiculous! I know they said winter was going to be tough but I didn’t imagine flare-ups every week!
Does anybody else get a headache when your pain flares up?
Please drop me a line, I’d love to get to know some other young adults with the condition.
