Getting rapidly worse

cracker Member Posts: 324 Pioneering
I have more pain and lack of mobility almost every day. My thumbs are coming out of their sockets frequently when I do something as simple as pick up a book or pull my sleeve over my hand. The bones in my shoulders are eroding fast, much pain when they grind each other and land on nerves.

I am to see another specialist and have another MRS, but all the doctors say nothing can be done. So I an faced with my bones literally crumbling to the point where they will not support my body any mire.

Just whining here, but I am quite frightened and depressed. Thank you all for your support.

    Hi @cracker  yes I can totally agree with what you're saying.  Not a day goes by without something or other worsening and unable to find a cure for it.  Yesterday and without notice a leg ulcer opened up and wasn't noticed until my sock was soaking with blood and pus.  Today I can hardly walk 10 steps without my legs collapsing under me.  NHS while good has basically given up on us oldies.  Even at 70 getting older is no joke.  You're not alone.

    Best wishes.
