Well the decision about my exercise class has been taken out of my hands now.
Went to see my doctor with my DX notes and he has referred me to a Rheumy. The appointment is in January. He has told me to stop the exercise class for the time being and asked me to drop the NSD until I have the appointment too. He wants a clear picture of what my situation, without anything else skewing results so to speak.
I am trying to walk as often as I can and do plenty of stretching.
I totally agree with you about how missing a class sets you back... and two classes a week are definitely better than one. I hope I can go back to my class again in the New Year.
I am going to post about the NSD thing in the diet section.
Thanks for your support, hon, it means a lot to me
