Arthritis update.

Dear Diary,

Hello and welcome to my blog!

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 of how to manage spinal arthritis please let me know! I’ll try anything!

I’m currently waiting for a new arm chair 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.

Love,

Rachel
