Many years back i had horrible horrible weeks of total exhaustion,diareha,pain,nausea and i remember one Christmas crawling on the floor to put up the tree.Had three small children had too.
I two more times that i was totaly ill .
I thought it was blood sugars going so low,pain in my body i thought was from working to hard.
Lack of sleep ,
But the i started noticing it hurts to be touched ,and well i cannot fathom how a massage could ever be helpful yikes.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia,But then thats where it stopped,nothing was ever offered to help me.
I learned to take my daily load slower and learned that a common pattern happens ,getting upset or added stress would trigger it.
But for many years i avoided the big relapses.
But then a huge trauma happened i my life and then another,I have not been pain free for years now.
I wake every morning a reach for the advil ,my legs are stone,my arms are weak ,i walk like iam paralyized for the first few feet.walking up stairs is a feared thing omg it hurts.
Every bone ,every muscle ,every joint hurts .
I have about 8 piched nerves in my spine and neck ,and have a torn rotary cuff.and well ciatica too.
So i have chalked all the pain up to my own body falling apart.
But then i know that none of those above can all of a sudden cause your body to be drained for no reason ,all of a sudden im so wiped out it is all i can do it sit it out,cant eat ,and when i do feel nausiated,im like a deflated ballon ,when i get these they last about 20 min or so,and some days they happen all day and for days ,like the limbo time just before you pass out,scarey.
Im going to see a pain specialist soon, but for right now i take 8-10 extra strength advil to get through a day,and hot bath at night,and sleep as often as i can,a day without a nap is a miracle.
Some days ive kinda noticed about 45 min is about the amount of time i can go without wanting to lie done.
My diet doesnt help either live off doughnuts ,coffee and peanut butter sandwiches for the most part.i just dont want to eat.
And throw in menopause and hot flashes and emotional roller coaster ride from that hightened by anxiety and depression ,it is so hard for me to know what to fix first.
For the most part when i have mentioned this to a doc and test are performed ,they chalk it all up to age related issues ,hmmm well im 52 and this all started many years back.
When i get extra days off work i do start to feel a little better ,but yup you guessed it,do to much and suffer again,
Looking forward to pain specialist ,just hope i dont have a panic attack and blow it
Anyway nap time i work later it is 12:30 here in the afternoon still havent had eaten,and wont either ,im in so much pain ,my body hates me .
Another toast day
Does anyone get blurred vision for no reason ,it is so wierd and then it goes away ,usually in the morning ?
