    Ok, I'm back

    So....BT's show that liver, kidneys, thyroid and basic bloods are all normal. Tested negative for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, but my inflammatory markers which should be between 0 and 2 were 6.5 I said "Sounds about right - I feel inflamed...."

    Doc doesn't want to do any further investigations yet because we're heading into IVF territory and possibly (hopefully) pregnancy territory, so prescribed some meds to help reduce the inflammation and said "See how you go with these for a month..."

    If no better I'm off for further investigations (MRI, spinal tap) to rule out various possibilities. MS was one of them which he thinks is *highly* unlikely, or possibly fibromyalgia.

    Anywho....

    Hello old friend, Prednisolone....

Everytime i get thirsty, i think i have diabetes. But i dont. Once i had a sore throat for a week and it just wouldnt get better. I went back to the gp, told him i might have ebola. He said, "have you been to east africa recently?" I said I hadnt. He said, "Then you dont have ebola." Its most likely, its something small/minor and most likely whatever it is, there will be something that can be done about it. And maybe, thinking like an ivf-er here, its better sometimes to find a problem than to feel like crap but they cant find anything wrong, so then you cant even begin to fix it and you know you're not a crazy hypochondriac (like me). Just trying to cheer you up by telking silly stories. But seriously, thinking of you and hoping its something which will help to stop you feeling achey and tired xox
    @Blossom74 - this is also me. I never used to be such a hypochondriac when I was younger. I have had bowel cancer ( no I actually didn't) and a tumour on my jaw bone ( no I actually didn't ) and every time I am over thirsty I think I have diabetes! An actual possibility since I have had gestational diabetes twice. The likelihood is it will be nothing serious but it's always hard to convince yourself of that as you worry that if you don't worry something will come and bite you on the a**.

    I'm doing okay, not much happening on my end ( apart from near death experiences). Am on EDA hoping to find a new donor, not stressing about it anymore. I'm sure the right person will come along X

    Hello old friend, Prednisolone....
    @Blossom74 did you find the aches went away when you are on prednisolone? Because then id say you do have inflamation. Ive got no disc left inbetween my last 2 vertebrae and my lower back aches and is incredibly painful. I thought it was a spinal thing but when i first took prednisolone for ivf, the constant pain TOTALLY disappeared. I actually used to use that thought as a positive when a cycle failed "oh well at least I'll get to take prednisolone again and be able to move, sit, stand, lie down, bend over, pick stuff up without pain." Ive hoarded scripts but the stuffs so awful ive never self prescribed it. But i do like knowing there is something out there i could take to make it disappear if i got really desperate.
    But yeah, if anti-immune/anti inflamatory meds make it go away then its inflammation. P.s. ive tried fish oil, and all other 'natural' stuff and it had no affect. Prednisolone is the only thing thats worked for my back pain. And it worked like a miracle.
