Happy New Year Everyone!
I’ll admit, I have been quite miserable the last few months. Throwing a personal pity party for myself. I’m sore, I’m cranky, my appetite is horrendous, medication makes me sick….I have been just ugh.
Welp, I am really going to try and change this around.
I need to honestly, or at least dedicate myself to dealing with this chronic pain better.
For those keeping track, we are on 2 years of my body telling me something is wrong and no doctors being able to figure it out.
Current symptoms include: all over body soreness, painful arm pits ( yes arm pits) , side pain ,chest pain, my ” necklace of pain” ( my throat and collar bone area ) , crazy night sweats, fire skin and crazy appetite.
First off, gotta get my meds under control . The metheltrexate i am on is really helping my knees and the arthritis that developed in them , however the medication makes me soooooo nauseous every day ! like every day! i wake up and just want to barf, but i never do, its awful. I just sit and wait for it to pass. Then there is the Prednisone…. ugh, why do they make it so it helps you feel better but you become a ravenous pig?
Anyone else have that issue with metheltrexate? Or Prednisone?
So, my doctors solution to that was changing it to an injectable one, however since i have no “official ” diagnosis and Meganitis is not a recognized disease anywhere, my insurance rejected it.
Ugh. So i was going back and forth with my doctor in messages and getting no where, so I have an appt this Weds. Hopefully I can get on the right path here.
I also am DYING to work out. To say my weight has increased would be a complete understatement, I don’t even recognize myself. I was going to get back at the gym, but then I needed another PET scan and my doctor told me to hold off starting back up .
But, now I NEED to do something. So , I am hoping I can get the ok to start back up , even if its small, and hoping he can do something to offset the appetite.
I never realized just how many people out there are dealing with chronic pain, be it from fibromyalgia, RA or any type of Arthritis , MS, cancers, its really nuts how many people are in the world suffering right now. It’s incredible .
We all find our way to get through the day. One thing that I have found to help with my daily routine is Plexus. It has been beyond incredible.
They only have a small amount of products, but they have been awesome. The Plexus Slim, The Ease , The Nerve , they are all so helpful to me daily. My pain has yet to be eliminated but, it definitely takes the edge off.
Honestly, I catch a lot of shit from people for promoting Plexus, but if they had any idea how much it has truly truly helped me, they would understand. Thats why I share it all the time, if there is someone out there like me ( based on my research there are thousands) that could benefit from these products, as a human , It is my job to share it.
Since I am hoping to be able to start doing some sort of exercise again, looking for feedback from the folks out there suffering from chronic pain. What do you do ? Or do you find that it is too difficult to do anything ? There has got to be something I can do .
Here’s to making 2017 a great year!
Blessings and love to you all!
