With this disease going up my arms, my forearms are now getting the tightening/stiffening that my hands would go through. My hands would be stiff and sore, but then they’d feel better in a couple of days.
Yesterday, my hands were sore, tight & swollen. All morning I really couldn’t use them. After our staff meeting, I went home for a pain pill and rest.
Today, my hands are not as swollen, but the joints look inflamed. Plus my forearms are getting tight and stiff. It’s quite a strange sensation as it starts out like an Indian burn, then it aches & throbs (which is what is happening now) and then it releases. Just strange I tell ya, just strange!!
I went to work this morning, in addition to my early morning Toastmasters meeting. By 4:30pm I was done and left the office 15 minutes later.
Now, I’m aching and ready for my meds. I think I’ll put on a video and crawl into bed, while hubby goes to church to do his Safety Team thing!
Hope your hump day was a good one – so glad we are on the down slide to the weekend!!
