So my little trip to the ortho Doc this morning turned into another dive down the rabbit hole. For some reason, I was surprised. You'd think I'd learn!
Turns out my knees are in good shape, better than they were 10 years ago, and the orthopedic specialist cannot help me. Sounds like good news right? Um yeah, not so much. I struggle with several autoimmune disorders including celiac disease. In spite of an obsessive adherence to a no gluten diet, my traitorous body is still trying to destroy itself and my bones appear to be the latest battle ground.
Next stop on this little adventure will be a rheumatologist to see if they can pinpoint the latest inner traitor and find a treatment that I am not allergic to. Good luck with that one.
Pardon me for a bit now while I go find a corner to set all of this aside, out of my way. I have more important things to do after all, I need to go walk my dog and hug a donkey.
