One that tends to haunt my mind on a daily if not hourly basis. At the moment it’s more along the hourly lines and I do wish I could get an answer.
So far on the list of unresolved ones…
Painful and twanging muscles in my hips and back
It’s all too easy to blame everything on the MonSter and I try not to…but when there is no other obvious reason it’s all too easy to fall back on it. Tomorrow I’ll be ringing the doctor to consult on the most recent addition to that list…the painful back.
I’ve not done anything to it, I can’t remember doing anything that could damage it but for the past week it’s been so painful I have really struggled walking, working, sitting…well doing most anything. The only thing I can think of is that some muscle or other has weakened and rather than me noticing it, it’s been compensated for and the pain has come along in the aftermath.
So first things first, the GP to see if they can come up with anything, when they shrug and say it’s probably a pulled muscle I’ll try the MS nurses and see what they think because all the muscles in my arms are weaker too.
I think that’s possibly one of the most annoying things about MS…it’s just so confusing! I’ve been diagnosed for nearly 5 years now and I still can’t make head nor tails of it half the time.
On a lighter note! I’m on annual leave this week and have been sat on my arse most of today in front of the telly with a crochet hook in my hand…a very satisfying way to spend the day (my back seems to have approved too) while I try to teach myself a new skill.
My first try at following a crochet pattern…as far as I’m concerned I think they wrote it wrong but not bad for a first time…
Number two turned out much better, partly because I ignored some of their instructions when I realised they weren’t working and just did it the way I thought it would actually turn out in a pattern rather than a big old mess 😉
One of these days I’ll just be making up patterns as I go along but for now I’ll keep following what the magazines recommend (with a few tweaks) and keep making pretty little bits and bobs that keep my hands and mind busy.
