I am so angry. My physio started me on a new exercise but the thing is I knew it was going to be hard but he insisted that I could do it. Im in full blown flare-up mode and I am mad!!! I stopped and called him told him I wouldnt be doing the exercise cause I was in bed suffering from severe pain in my neck to my left shoulder blade down my left arm and pain just about everywhere along with fever, numbness. The pain managed to make its way up to my jaw and ear which hurt for a few hours Owwie!! I got the swelling down with ice packs and feeling better for 2 days now so that pain is under control . Im having severe anxiety issues along with my allergies being triggered by all of whats happened so all that together adds to trying to catch a nice breath at times. I have a head ache, every single injury that I ever had has acted up on top of it all so along with my original aches and pains . Im now dealing with the old ones..LOL Im going through something new and i have been for awhile but now I can feel it badly and thats perimenopause. What a nightmare! The first couple of nights I think I was able to get about 2 hours of sleep and last night I finally was able to get 6 and 1/2 hrs of sleep HOORAY! That made me happy
. My left arm is killing me and without the ice packs it feels like it will explode. I dont feel like Im getting better (maybe its just cause Im going through the flare-up and upset that im saying this) but right now thats the way I feel and Im sticking to it. I noticed Im urinating quite a bit which is a new symptom when I flare up even just at a 6 level( every once in awhile that is). Im peaking at about an 8 right now but goes up to a 9-10 for an hour or so without any help from the meds and heating pad or ice packs. Im going to try and pull myself through by mostly using the ice packs and the heating pad they seem to work very good for me. The problem is that means I have to stay on my butt all day and boy does my butt feel sore right now. So much going on all at once. I forgot how bad these things were. I know Im being selfish seeing as I at least had a few good months without any major pain. Now keep in mind I have Chronic Pain so I am always in Pain just not as bad as this right now. I was handling the pain pretty good for the first few days and had it under control. But unfortunately I lost the battle due to exhaustion, it got the best of me. New symptoms have appeared and I dread it so I cry it out. I hope this doesnt last too long . My longest flare up was about several months almost a full year of pain. Im coming to a point where Im saying to myself once again. I cant do this anymore. I remember that terrible year it was the worst days of my life. I just needed somewhere to come just to share my grief ,my pain, to people who I know are going through the same if not worse. You know how hard it is to be positive 24/7 when battling in a war like this. Its ice pack time. I think I can go back and try again and get a hold of this Bull by the horns thing. I did want to ask a question. Can the pain cause the stomach to bloat? Any answers would dearly be appreciated. Love this Site and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Thank You!
