you may think pack leader has stitched my front legs to my face, but no!
been feeling a bit meh for a while now ever since a cough last year, so went to this place in wanstead yesterday morning for what i thought was a massage, before i knew it, it was night time and i had a very sore head and shaven wrist/ankle joints. wtf!
ct thankfully doesn't show damage to joints (like ra) or cartilage and no bacterial infection found (like lymes), but apparently joint taps showed my synovial fluid is too thin so not cushioning my joints very well hence getting stiff and sore after frizbee/running. also have funny bumps on the top of my head and on ear flaps so they cut a bit out for examination.
they say i may have mild immune mediated poly arthritis, pending results of creatine kinase (ck) blood test, urinology and biopsies to rule out lupus (sle). i may need immuno-suppressant treatment, and hopefully i can get my va va voom back!
pack leaders are feeding me gourmet lily's kitchen to cheer me up. silver lining and all.
