So do you want to know my secret? Steroid sprays. Rhinocort for the nose and Symbicort for the lungs. Who says that small amount has no systemic effects? I have not been so sharp-witted and marching up and down the house catching up on housework for a long, long, time.
I still have the pain but it is a bit less I think because I forgot to take my Targin one night.
As for the leg calf bulge, it must be muscular because I've been getting cramps in the same muscle and neither magnesium or quinine are helping.
As for the weight gain, it seems I have a type I (i) metabolism since menopause according to a survey I completed.
