I don't know why but I saw the signs all day yesterday and I passed them off as the heat causing them. Then late yesterday afternoon I had a nap when I woke up the pain hit me like a train my hips are swollen and my legs especially knee's and feet. When the OH come home from work I was lay on the settee and was contemplating wether to have a blast of Oromorph and how long it would last before I could have some more working if it would get me through the night as you do!! :roll: He made sure I was comfortable on the settee. But I was thinking this might be a good thing with me going to see the new Rhummey on Thursday! They all ways say it would be helpful to see you with a flare up, well I have the starts of one now!!
I woke up this morning to my hands now decided to join the party! They have started the pins & needles feeling and slight swelling. Gonna do what my OH told me I must do! Rest and don't go agregating anything! So today I'm surrounded by cushions and going to read or watch a film! Hope this is a short one got enough to worry about.

    Hugs Amanda.

    I think as you say, it's perfect timing. At least s/he will see you at your worst which should help them.

    Take Care

    I agree with pink. If you have to have a flare, it's a good time to have it. Hope the appointment goes well.

    I know what u are going through as I'm in the middle of a flare uP myself.
    Maybe the fact u are going to see your doctor is well timed And he can see you when you are bad.
    We always try to keep the good side out when we shouldn't really.
    I hope you feel better soon.
