Been a little while since I’ve posted – mostly because I’ve been hoping to be feeling better and that hasn’t worked as of yet. I’ve been getting out more, which may be part of the problem. Cold and damp has been absolute murder on me, leaving me feeling sore and exhausted after I get home. The simple answer would be ‘stop going out’ but that’s got a host of problems of its own. So, I go out for walks and pay for it dearly when I get home.
I think my back shot has, for the most part, worn off. And my hip! Holy crap on toast, does my hip hurt! Left hip mostly, but my sacrum/L5 area has been clunky as hell. Joint pain as well has been awful, worse on days when it rains. Is it odd that it hurt LESS when it was freezing than it does when it is raining?
Weird bone squeezy, muscle thumpy ache at the midpoint of both biceps, outside only, as well as just above midpoint for both thighs, also outside only. Identical on both sides and it always happens altogether. Not constant, but persistent.
In any case, I will be going for another walk today, ache be damned, so I expect to be hurty when I get home.
It’s been cold and damp of late, so yeah, sore. And we had snow! Why that gets me all happy, I don’t know. It hurts like hell, but it’s at least pretty, so there’s that. I’ve tried to stay inside as much as possible, because I know that the minute I go out it will feel as though all my sore spots will shatter. Not surprisingly, that’s exactly how I felt when I had to go out on Friday for an errand that couldn’t be done any other way. My left hip/sacrum area was the worst of it, feeling like broken pottery bits rubbing together. A lot of clunking from my lower back. I kept fearing that it would go out and just stay out but it didn’t, thankfully. Also, my left “broken” toe has been feeling awful and very tender as well. Not that the rest doesn’t hurt but I think I’ve had those pains longer so they are easier to push into the background. Plus, I’m not walking right on them. So there’s that.
Weird recurring thing where I get stabby, squeezy bone sort of pains in my biceps and things. The exact same spot on equal sides of my body. It’s not constant – as in, it doesn’t come and then stay – but it does recur persistently. Weirdness.
Been feeling more tired than usual, which I think is my body’s way of telling me that the cold really is being a bigger nuisance than I suspected, staying inside or no staying inside.
I may have to go outside again today, so I suspect I’ll be in for more ouchiness later on.
A horrible few days with today being the worst so far. Terrible headache – one of those right side, pulsy, turn down the lights, turn down the volume, turn down the smells sort of thing.
Body aches are ramped up quite a bit. Upper back feels like it’s being hit, of course, but I think my lower back/left hip might be the worst of it. Very sharp, grindy type pains. The rest of my joints (hands/wrists and toes being the worst) feel like they are full of broken glass.
So yep, awful. Blech
Hideous headache from hell, nearing migraine proportions by around 10 am-ish. One of those awful ones where the whole right side of my head feels like it might just goosh out if I move. The pine smell of the candle – that I usually like – made me hurt last night, and even the light from it hurt. Even TEA hurt and felt awful. That’s how bad it was.
My back, both upper and lower, hurt like hell, and radiated up through my right shoulder, neck, and yep, into my brain.
Tried to stay quiet and still and ride it out. I have a feeling today isn’t going to be any better.
Weird, cold weather is making everything hurt but other than the hurt, I’m actually doing okay (thank you, Efexor!). Aside from the usual aches and pains, the cold weather right knee ache is back. It’s not an illness thing, but a stupid fell down a muddy hill years ago sort of thing. It only bugs me when it gets really cold out and yep, it’s really cold out.
I’ve had to watch out how much time I spend knitting, as my hands hurt after a very short amount of time right now and there are some days when I can’t do it at all. I’ve tried to make sure I lie down frequently so that my back – both upper and lower – don’t freak at me.
Some nasty headaches but if I catch them quickly enough, I can push them into the background.
I’ve had a cold/not cold for a little bit. Stuffed up head but not too bad. Just lingery.
But I don’t feel too bad, which has been nice.
My follow up w/ the pain clinic was uneventful.
I thought the warmer weather would bring some sort of relief but it hasn’t, at least not much. I haven’t gone outside much but on the extremely rare chance that I have, it’s been very painful, joint-wise. Even inside, the joint pain has been awful. Despite what the computer is telling me about the temperature, it feels about 10 degrees colder. And then there’s the fog, which just ups that horrid damp feeling.
So, feeling very crunchy and ouchy.Joint pain, lower back crunching and popping, chest aches, migraines and a general oogy feeling. My upper back has frequently had me feeling tired but as yet (this week, anyway) hasn’t been overly painful. At least on my spine, although I’m betting it is the cause of my migraines and chest pains.
But my sternum rash appears to be clearing up, so there’s that!
Been having a really rough go of it this week. I’m really hoping that it’s the weather because that will go away at some point, right?
Back pain – both thoracic and at the sacrum level – wicked awful joint pain, and even muscle pain, although that may be just because the rest of me feels so sore that it decided to join in just for fun. I’ve had terrible migraines all this week as well.
