Personal Update

I have not been taking anti-inflammatory painkillers since returning from the Ride.  I have to consider my liver.  Gradually as the weather warmed, my knees improved, and the pain has subsided though I did continue to apply Achy Rub and take fish oil.  I noticed that a sudden dip in the temperature yesterday was accompanied by some exacerbation of the condition, but otherwise the knees are progressing well.

The weather has turned a bit hiemal after the recent warm spell.  The house is cold in the mornings when I awake, and I am stiff (in the knees) when I arise but after just receiving a $500 power bill, I am not using the heaters any longer.

I am looking forward to a visit from my sister Sue tomorrow.  I shall show her around the Shire and take her dinner in Woodanilling.

I have to get the house a bit tidier before she arrives!

    Does the fish oil make a big difference?

      It’s one of those things an individual can’t answer. Even if the symptoms are relieved there is no certainty of the cause. I am taking them mainly to reduce my levels of “bad” cholesterol, but upped the dose a bit to try help the knees. Double Blind trials indicate a correlation between omega three intake and reduced symptoms of arthritis. Statistically significant, and good enough for me to give it a go.
