Granny Hips : Physio Parts 1&2

  I really didn’t know what to expect from physio. The rheumatologist, after diagnosing undifferentiated connective tissue disease (UCTD) and fibromyalgia, recommended physio and pain management. I’m also on Hydroxychloroquine for the UCTD. The appointment for physio came through in just a couple of weeks, but the pain management referral will apparently take a few,…

Mini Me Update
