Hello all, don't talk to me about Bursitis, I've been in agonising pain all week. Im on the couch since last Friday,I can barely walk, not even able to make a cuppa, I've cried so much this week, also oa in my hands and feet are the worst they have ever been, can't use my left hand at all, I'm in bits. I got an apointment for rhummy on Monday. God, I needed to get that out.
