Hi everyone! Well I went to see my G.P this morning for the results of my blood test. Well it wasn't great news, my inflammatory markers where up raised for the 2nd month in a row. So she looked at my legs and had a feel and I was yelping a lot and she was shocked at how much swelling I had in my legs. I told her about my left knee and the hospital and she agreed with me that an x-ray wasn't a good idea and she told me to give it a couple of weeks and if my knee was still extremely painful she would arrange x-rays and scans to see if something was causing the grinding in my knee. Also my calcium reading wasn't good it was very low, lower than normal. Even through I'm dairy- intolerant. So not the best appt, But it's the weekend and my OH & myself have said we are going to have a nice relaxing weekend and will enjoy ourselves.

    I'm sorry ure appointment didn't say wot you wanted hear :( Were you kind of expecting the news ure markers would be up tho? (My markers are different every week so I have no expectations with mine anymore.lol)

    I think having a chilled weekend sounds like a great idea, try not to stress about it all. ((((hugs)))) x
