That stands to reason... I'm glad you got to the dr and the pain is being treated, Sam. Hopefully, the flair will simmer down soon.

Sam,

Glad you were able to see your sclero doctor so quickly. I agree with you about therapy. It seems everytime I've had therapy it has aggravated my fibro and made me feel worse. Hope you feel better soon.

Hi Sam,

I'm with ya' on the therapy, but one thing that was good when I went for my hands. It made them achy, but it also made them stronger. So I guess we take the good with the bad, eh? I still do some of the stretches they showed me, only I don't do it to the point of pain that they did, and it seems to work. So if anything, maybe you'll get some ideas of what you can do for yourself on a lesser scale. And try to stick with the steroids til your done, I know it's a pain in the neck, but it should calm your flare down. Happy thoughts from my house to yours.
Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

Warm and Happy to you! Vee
