Odd that you mention your ankles. I have a problem with my left. I had injured it some years back and I think arthritis has developed there also. I actually thought I had broken it at one point. I could hardly stand on it. I went to the Urgent Care clinic and the doctor wouldn't even xray me. Gave me some bullsh*t line about it being plantar fasciatis. Hell, the fascia muscle isn't bothering me. It's my ankle and the top of my foot. But I wasn't going to argue. I just went home and toughed it out. It passed after a day or so. The flare ups never last for more than a week at the most. Oddly enough, as cold as it is here (single digits), it's not bothering me at all right now. My back, on the other hand, is a different story entirely, lol.

I've got alot of arthritis at the base of my spine. Makes for some really rough mornings during colder weather, though the alternative isn't pleasant either. I hate the heat.

Thanks for responding to my blogs, Mary. Except for going out to watch a special football game yesterday that's all I've been doing this weekend is resting. No energy left in me at all. Just trying to hold it together. ~ Nancy
