Apr. 25th, 2018

8 years - Bursitis left hip - Cortisone injections.

7 years - inflamed discs in the spine. Treated with an op every 2-3 years to kill the nerve endings, and daily doses of anti-inflammatories and painkillers.

2 years - arthritis in both knees, the right knee is worse. Very painful at times. Cod liver oil and as above.

Plantar Fasciitis - really painful at the moment. Doing the physio and taking additional painkillers, but nothing is really working. Been going far longer than it usually does, is on my discuss list with the doc next week.

My eyes are a bit buggered, but glasses do the everyday stuff. Dark is a bit of a nightmare though.

"Something" with my shoulder, leading to my collar bone sticking out and limited arm movement. On the waiting list for injections for that.

TBA Hiatus Hernia, although doc now suspects that was a red herring, and possibly just a one-off episode of something gastro.

TBA - Underactive thyroid, as has shown up in the blood tests last week. I've googled, as you do, and I have pretty much all of the symptoms. I am struggling to lose weight even though I am eating and drinking considerably less than a couple of months ago. I'm tired, in spite of going to bed about an hour earlier than I ever used to. I feel cold. I have non-specific muscle aches, even now, when I haven't been to the gym for a week. Dry skin, although I moisturise like the devil. And depression, which I've felt for about a month now, but had attributed to other things going on in my life.

On the plus side, I've lost almost 2 stones now. And I am exercising very regularly. I am actively changing my own life for the better.

Really trying not to be negative or down. Holibobs in 3 weeks.
