So here I am reporting on yesterday (Day 5) with only today and tomorrow to go.
I'm going to see the immunologist this afternoon - clearly I won't have to explain that today is a good day, though not quite the worst I ever feel it is a good example of a bad (not BAAAAD) day.
Quite frankly I'm over it!
|Edna Everage Day||DAY 5|
|Constant Pain||Constant dull aches||Headache's gone! Body pain is unrelenting.|
|Stabbing or Shooting Pain||Intermittent but many times a day – hips, knees, shoulders, back, neck – the usual suspects||My hips, knees and right shoulder featured prominently with a rather nasty cameo by my back.|
|Energy||Like I used to feel when I had a cold or the flu.||Still lousy|
|Skin||Irritation and itchiness usually when I try to relax||Not too bad (Yay!)|
|Depression||A bit down||A bit down|
|Anxiety||Fluctuating at times high||Average (a couple of spikes)|
|Sleep||Restless, broken, some insomnia||Slept very heavily (woke hurting) for about 4 hours and then couldn't go back to sleep.|
|Restlessness||Limited ability to be still||Not too bad|
|Fumbling & Stumbling||Drop things, bump into things, catch feet on uneven surfaces & stumble||Quite bad, even watching my fingers I lost hold of something I was holding delicately.|
|Balance & Vertigo||Varied equilibrium issues with occasional vertigo||Poor balance a couple of mild head spins (needed to sit)|
|Hunger||Not usually||Too tired to bother eating it was a real drudge|
|Cheating||N/A||Nuts, olives and avocado and whole fruit instead of juiced.|
