Bone Crushingly bad

Recommended Posts

I've just been told that my knee injury that ive had for 3 weeks, maybe the onset of a form of joint bone disease. im off for 2 weeks so 5 in all. :(

Now im so worried. i have pain in wrists and knee some of the time, but ive been told i have to wait for xray appt to come thru and gotta do a blood test to see if its degenatory (sp?).:twisted: :twisted:


im only 26 i feel like 90, and i thought i was doing so well making all those yummy goodies yesterday. now i feel like poo. :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:

Oh,you poor thing,you must be feeling everso fragile & in need of some attention from your other half :?


All I can say is please try to remain positive,don't worry about the other pains too much if you can.Difficult I know,but please try not to worry.


You are still young & I am sure that there must be plenty of treatments available to you,should the test results be not so good.


Good vibes coming your way :P:P:P

So sorry to hear of your worries!

Its awful not knowing what's going on isn't it?

Telling you not to worry is useless I know, but I just want you to know that we're all thinking of you and hope that your x-ray appointment comes through soon and your worries can at least be allayed or met.

Whatever the outcome, I am sure there will be solutions!

Try to focus on today, not next week or next month. Do something nice today for yourself!

Fleata, I've been going through a similar thing if it's any help, and lost alot of movement in my left ankle :evil: before I did anything about it :roll:


Do try to stay positive I know it's hard, but medication if you need it it so much better now than it ever was.


Definately treat yourself whilst off work :D


Sending some healing vibes

Fleata, this is DEFINATELY the time to be treating yourself, and online shopping is just perfect for that!


When I had some health problems over Christmas and New Year, I made a bit of a dent in the 'rainy day' fund, a lot of it online......


Can I suggest you pop over to LUSH and get some smellies.....


Take care xx

Oh I'm sorry to hear your news but you don't know the full details yet so keep your chin up. I was told I'd lose the ability to walk years ago when I was misdiagnosed with ME and I was actually anorexic. :roll: I believe in positive thinking so perhpas you can think positively, wait for a diagnosis and then let us help in any way we can.


Thinking of you,

Fleata, just to add my good wishes to those above. I've got every sympathy with you. You're probably at one of the hardest stages - not actually knowing what's going on exactly and therefore what your plan of action might be.


Distraction is an excellent idea - online shopping, sitting in the garden with your girls, reading Practical Poultry :oops: whatever floats your boat! Like Buffie said, positive thinking is empowering - conversely the worry and fear of negativity is very draining.


Here's hoping you get a proper diagnosis very soon so you can move forward. :)


Good luck



xx PS perhaps your OH could take you out for a nice meal tonight?! :wink:

fleata, keep your chin up. I know it all seems bleak now, but it will all come out in the wash eventually.


I'm with the others - while mum was dying I spent money like water - retail therapy IS a therapy. The tap is turned off now, by the way, before hub makes me bankrupt! :?

Oh Tracey, I am sorry you are feeling unhappy. :( It is frustrating not knowing what you are dealing with, but, like Sarah says, you are very young and there are a whole host of treatments for all sorts of conditions. Keep your positive-thinking hat on :D and keep us posted when you have your test results.


Wishing you well.

Sorry to hear your news Tracey

I think the waiting period for tests can be the worst - all the horrid things it can be churn round in your mind - but hopefully it will turn out to be very treatable.


Try not to worry about your job - the law is there to protect you
