Had a long busy day cooked all morning after a two day flare plus organizing a trip for more medical care. Feeling pretty wiped out and numb. As of now meds not really working .

I'm sorry it's been so rough. I hope you can relax and get a decent night's sleep. I rub voltaren gel into my calf muscles before bed any day I'm on my feet a lot, like today. If you have something like the analgesic ointments maybe you could try that. 🙏🌼

Thanks I'll try it... I really need to recoupe fast. I've got another possible busy day tomorrow. Does driving bother anyone else?

Yes it does. It causes my tremors to be worse. Riding long trips hurts my back and legs 🙏🌼

I've been blessed to be in a position where family could help me get around but its coming to a point where I'm gonna have yo start driving more often again. I get dizzy and sometimes confused when I drive. But a family member has an appointment tomorrow and I'm the only one who can go. So I'm gonna pray and go out and drive her..

I left my hubby do most of the driving, unless he can't get off. I have gotten lost several times, especially when stressed. And I always pray whether it's me off him driving! Lol I'm the better driver, but if my tremors caused me to wreck and someone got injured I would feel awful. I'll say a prayer for you! 🙏🌼
