#615 Polymyalgia Rhuematica - Part 2

It has been a while since I posted the information about a possible health concern, polymyalgia rhuematica. After the blood tests, the doctor assured me I did not have that ailment.

Since then the discomfort in my neck and shoulders has subsided considerably. I still have to move my head a little slower, but the range of motion is quite good. Now all I have to do is have my other aches and pains disappear.

I hope all is well with you and you are satisfied with the choices you are making.

May peace and love be with you always.

Glad to hear this great news. Getting old isn't for sissies is it? No it's not.

Have a great day. :)

Know how you feel...

This is great to hear (or ummm read).

What a good Doctor to be on top of things! I am sure you are relieved with the news too. I wouldn't want all of those side affects with the medication either.

bunches of hugs

Good news, Jack. I have a pinched nerve that gives me fits sometimes, so I knda know how you feel.

Great news!

I have degenerative disk in my neck so there are times I can't move my head too well either. Fortunately it has not flared up for quite some time (knock on wood).

I'm glad you haven't got polymalgia wouldn't be nice. Maybe you're rusting up...try some alcohol...that should fix it...grin.

The aging process sucks, to be sure, other than the part you recently posted pics on (grandkids and great grandkids).

It takes the wisdom of age to be able to deal widdit ;)

Hang tough!

Dear Jack ~~ I am sorry you have a few health problems and pain. Me too.
I don't know anything about the one
you mentioned - polymyalgia
rheumatics - but glad you don't have
it. My brother bought a bio magnetic underlay for his bed and loves it. I got one too and it is lovely and warm and comfy, But it doesn't take the pain away from my back.
Glad you liked the tired dog story.
Take care, my friend, Regards, Merle

Hi Jack, just read the last 3 posts and perhaps I should rather comment on them per e-mail...

anyway, great posts, both on D-Day and your bother's reunion!

Re your health: I don't think it has to be that way and I also don't think you're THAT old. This type of body can last for 140 to 150 years, if treated correctly and i don't think that you're quite there yet...

What you need is a de-tox, different diet and have you read Hulda Clark's books?

anyway i'm sure everything can be handled, just not by doctors!

one reason why you should never listen to these idiots:

Hi again Jack ~~Thanks for your comments and glad you enjoyed the post and jokes. I flunked the test too. Shrewd old rooster.
Hope you are doing OK. Take care.
Regards, Merle.

I'm very happy to hear that, Jack. It's not a pleasant ailment to have, very painful.'s the alcohol, it worked!
