The little while I was stuck with that nasty hip joint pain was enough for me to never want to get old.My extra today was hauling feed to the chicken pens, two loads of laundry, drive to a doctor appt in OKC and then cutting up a big pumpkin and canning 7 quarts.
I have 5 more pumpkins to butcher and can this week.
Today my Doctor added Arava 20mg (leflunomide) to my arthritis inflammation meds.
I’m already taking Placquenil (hydroxychloroquine 200 mg) and Meloxicam 7.5 mg. Hopefully this will tweak my inflammation levels and we will drop one of the two I already take. Getting older comes with joint and pain issues that make me wonder if the golden years are named that because medicine is costly.
Not going to keep this old gal from pushing her limits and using her hula hoop!
I don't wannnaaaaaaaa.
I hope the new med helps you Nan.
