    I'm still struggling with my anxiety, my tremors, and some days, I feel rough, but not only this, my arthritis is constant pain.
    My RH is good, my hba1c, is being updated as I had bloods done yesterday. Will post results when I get them.
    Had my eye tests last week, no neuropathy, but increased cataracts in both eyes and the right eye has a loose film, also dry eyes, eye drops bought and better already. Too early for cataract treatment yet!
    The tremors are worse as I get up in the morning and the hand shaking doesn't help with the pain in my left hand because of the arthritis. I was in outpatients on Tuesday, seeing a specialist, and then physiotherapist, because of the x-ray, just can't do much with left hand and need series of injections to firstly get the joints moving again, secondly to ease the pain, and finally more x-rays to prevent further deterioration in left hand and wrist. I got given a hand brace to support and relieve the pain a bit.
    My GP believes that my liver is the cause of the recent rubbish days and hopefully it's not!
    Having had the run around of getting a face to face appointment, I certainly made the most of it! However when went to see the nurse for my bloods to be taken, other than the receptionist, no one else was in the doctora, as they are all off again with covid! This is the second time in the last four weeks, that this has happened.
    The hospital which I attend has just reopened a fifth ward, the second reopened ward in just over a month! And our local death rate is still higher than two years ago!

    The strange thing is, even though I do have bad days, but like today, I am in pain and frustrated and anxious! My energy levels are great. My health in general is pretty good, but I've got a list now of conditions and syndromes. But I am not ill!

    Is my body lying to me? Is my brain lying to me (again)?

    Glad to read your energy levels are great and you are not ill as you certainly have a lot going on. I hope you are still able to enjoy the things you do, though I might suggest keeping away from football (cheek). Take care.

    To get those results, whilst having all the other stuff going on, is absolutely brilliant! Well done
