Mainly my right shoulder. I have issues in both hands, basically all around the base of the thumbs - that was getting problematic. But since I got turned on to Voltaren and started smearing that on them every morning, they're mostly good.
But the Voltaren does not do much for the shoulder.
Here's what I learned this week. Sorry, this may be a big downer.
I talk about my brother in the present tense. I had occasion to recall an event to some of the guys at work - the Massacre at the Avion, let's call it - and I kept talking about stuff he did and I would say stuff like, ". . . because that's just what he's like."
"He's a Ticats fan."
"Dude likes to have a drink."
and so on
It's not that I have forgotten he's gone but I guess using past tense takes some getting used to.
Muddy, see if you can get some Pennsaid for your knee and then use it on your shoulder. Voltaren is 1% diclofenac gel. Pennsaid is 2% and is to be used twice a day instead of 4 times. I know in the US if it only FDA approved for knees but I used it on some trochanteric (hip) bursitis and it worked wonders!!
Here's what I notice - and I think it's about aging: I find women more and more beautiful. Whether I am just looking at media or I'm at work or out-and-about: I'm gaga about women. A lot of women. Not just young hotties; there are women I wouldn't have noticed 30 years ago where I now see great beauty. And they're just walking around all over the place.
I've always had an appreciation of female beauty but at this point it's just stupid.
