    I don't think so, Daisymae, but how upsetting for you. I have two kinds of arthritis all over the place but feel well in myself - and look well too which confuses people around me. There are times when the pain can make me feel very nauseous, and sometimes the lack of decent quality sleep has that effect, but that is all. What medication has your GP prescribed? I ask because that could be a factor if it doesn't suit. DD

    Hello and how are things today?

    I, too, wonder if you're on some sort of medication which is making you feel unwell. Or, perhaps, you're just going down with a bug. How are you feeling unwell - like a cold / flu / tummy bug? And how long have you felt like this?
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
