Rheumatoid Arthritis Health Log

RA health log. So much for updating the blog once a week while I was gone, but I did enjoy the time away from the computer. I also did get plenty of exercise in while we were in Europe. I really can not believe how much walking I did in Dublin. It was great! I am really amazed how much I was able to stay on my feet this trip compared to last year. My sister told me when I first got on Enbrel that I will be amazed at how much better I feel each year that I am on it and she was right.

I did have some slight stiffness in my feet and some tenderness in my knees. Both went away quickly and were a 1 on the pain scale. I did do two shots before I left since I was going to be gone two weeks. I am not sure that it really stayed in my system for the full two weeks and I think next time I will just do the one shot. I have not had any shots since then because of some congestion. I learned last year to make sure there is no congestion, my sister had some but thought she had cleared up enough to do her shot so she did and it got much worse. She ended up on breathing treatments and was miserable, so I learned from her mistake.

I spent the last week catching up on some work. Yesterday I got myself back in the Wii Fit routine, I did 30 minutes of Rhythm Boxing.

Biotinidase Deficiency Not RA
Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in Dec 2003 because of joint pain and fatigue. Found out on July 19, 2013 that I really was profoundly low on Vitamin B7 because of a rare disease called Biotinidase Deficiency. When I found out I was very weak, hardly could get out of bed, could not turn my head without getting light headed, dragging my feet when I tried to walk, struggled to breath daily for years and was having many many other issues. From the first 24 hours of taking Biotin my symptoms started to disappear and my body started getting stronger again.
