Well braddo looks like you have found a medication that has worked at last, don't worry about the little slip, we all have done it plenty of times before. Just because we have pain free days, we can't go full hog at activities, pacing is still and will always be a big part of our lives, but I am a good one to say this, the reason I have not posted for a few days is I went away for a short holiday on the coast, and being near water means fishing, up at 4.00 am every morning to throw the lines in, got carried away catching squid, and the big buggers took their toll hauling them up the jetty, now I am paying dearly, but I don't care I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Braddo the leg pain can be a bit tricky to treat as most of it is referred pain, slow adjustments in medication may help reduce this pain, some relief is better than none, and any time you have less pain is a good thing, all we have to try and remember is not to blow it by being stupid, on occasions though we do out of enjoyment, but we know what to expect afterwards so it's not that bad and the bonus is our spirit has been lifted and that is always a positive when living with CP.
