Can I please schedule pain/inflammation??

It would be SO cool if we could schedule our pain and inflammation day(s) to jive with our schedules. 

After having wonderful labs a couple of weeks ago, I went into a massive flare. I know there is the joke/saying, "I don't have time for that." However, for me, it ISN'T a joke. I was supposed to help with district track meets this week in the concession stands. I couldn't do it, because there was so much pain, all over, and it just wouldn't go away.

I have been bordering on calling my rheum and begging for some sort of pain killer. I want to cry, but it will do no good at all. MTX and Oriencia are taking a long time to kick into my system. Hopefully, with this Friday's dose, it will kick in faster.

Between last week's storm and the wonky barometric pressure, it's crazy. It is EVERY joint. Neck, jaw, shoulders, elbows, entire wrist & hands, ribs, sternum, I really don't need to keep listing. 

I have so many things that need to be done in the house. Sort & start laundry, clean the living room, finish moving my "office" back upstairs to the _real_ office. But without relief in energy & pain, those things are a little hard to accomplish.

Today, I took my daughter to get her blood tested. Something I probably should have had done to myself ages ago. She has so many of the symptoms. We should know SOMETHING in the next few days.
