Hi again.

I know I have a lot of complaints today. Actually I have a lot but will only list the two most concerning at the moment....

I have this noticeable swelling in the lower left quadrant , if you touch your hip bone on the front and follow it down toward the pelvic area but not exactly that far, maybe where your underware or bicini would reach the top, there is swelling about 4 inches long and about 1 or 1 1/2 inch thick. When looking down I notice it. I showed hubby and he says probably swelling in a muscle. No pain there though. Just noticeable by my eye.

I go on Tuesday to rhemo.... I am afraid this time I will have a list to bring.

Sending some sunshine your way.....today was about 55 and I got to go stand outside and get some fresh air, but not enough !!

I'm not sure what this could be - but am very glad you will have a rheumy appointment very soon. This should definitely be on your list! Any time there is swelling it should be investigated. Have you noticed this for a long time?

Paula,
It is a good thing that you do have an appointment and even if it was gone as far as the swelling I would still tell him about it. It could be nothing but better to find out nothing then wait for it to be something lol. You can try heat or ice to see if that helps with the swelling. I hope you feel better soon and have a good report from the rhuemy.
