What a difference a day makes

Apart from being a great 1970's dance track by Esther Phillips, I can't tell you how much better my knee feels today. It feels like new, really. Almost no pain, some swelling has returned, but it is easy to bend, stand and walk. No running yet.

The down side is that I'm having some side effects, I googled for side effects on and it listsm a long list of fairly scary side effects, none of which I've experienced, but I didn't sleep well, I am thirtsy all the time and drinking, etc.
  • low potassium (confusion, uneven heart rate, extreme thirst, increased urination, leg discomfot, muscle weakness or limp feeling);
Less serious side effects may include:
  • sleep problems (insomnia), mood changes;
  • acne, dry skin, thinning skin, bruising or discoloration;
I assume discoloration includes being bright red. It looks like my whole upper neck and head have been out in the sun way too much and I'm hot to touch. Ahh well, onwards!
