...when my BF is having a flair up of his arthritis. Well, honestly we're not sure if it's arthritis or not. We went to the VA hospital in SLC last Wednesday and they're thinking it could be Celiac Disease. He's had some major problems with digestive issues that started about the same time as the joint pain and swelling. He never mentioned it to the drs before because he didn't think it was related. I went with him and brought it up, so we may have a new lead. Ugg! At the appointment, they stuck a 25 gauge needle in both knees and both ankles trying to find fluid to test (again, for about the fourth time in 7 months), and he's still in so much pain. His right knee is so swollen and he's on crutches. He just shifts the blankets over his leg and he wakes up in pain. As a result, I'm finding it hard to sleep next to him. I'm 7 months pregnant, so I take up a bit of space (to say the least, lol) and I'm afraid of hurting him. Therefore I'm downstairs on the couch, not sleeping for the third night in a row. I'm SOOOOO tired!! I love to cuddle with him and sleeping in his arms is the best place ever! But I don't want to hurt him. Any suggestions ladies?
