Pain level: 5
Dislocations so far today: none yet
Subluxations so far today: Right shoulder several times
Meds: meloxicam--1 tablet.
Major complaint: some stiffness, pain and swelling in the joints of my hand (R>L)
I woke up this morning with my right hand feeling as good as it does at 4PM! I couldn't believe it! I could make a fist the second I woke up, with no tightness in my skin/joints. My mobility is still far down from what I'm used to and I still have aching and pain, but nothing compared to what I've been living with. It's such a huge improvement to yesterday morning when I could barely make myself breakfast! These new NSAID's are a godsend so far. Let's hope they keep it up.
A lot to do today. I'll likely update this later on.
