How's that for a mouthful. About 10 days ago I awoke with muscular pain in my neck and shoulders. (It occurred since my visit to the doctor back in late March.) I put up with it for about 10 days and then decided to check back with the doctor. I had gotten some new jokes to share with him, but that is another story.
When I told Maryann that I would be going to the doctor she told me that I might be over-reacting to the normal aspects of the "aging process", an opinion the doctor confirmed. However, the doc did give me more information. He suspected that I might be suffering from Polymyalgia Rhuematica. I had the doctor spell it for me and have done some on-line research. I suspect that information from the Mayo Clinic can be relied upon. The treatment for this ailment is interesting. I'm not sure if we will have to go down this road. After reading some of the cautions of some of the drugs I am reluctant to take that route.
I may be over-reacting here. It is a good idea to wait for the diagnosis before deciding what to do. In the meantime I will do some more research to be better prepared to talk to the doctor about it. Now to discover the blessing in this event.
