the pain struggle
Tuesday, November 20, 2018
For 2 days, I have been experiencing extreme pain all over in my muscles. I took 2 advils yesterday at 5:30 pm and drank a whole bottle of propel (I was as at work) The pain subsided, but came back around 10pm, excruciating pain, especially in my legs with a burning sensation. my legs became swollen, I felt like my skin was stretched to the max, my lower back by my spine from waist to hips felt like my muscles were overstretched, and nothing could relieve the pain. I took 2 more advil’s, this time the pain did not go away, but was not as bad as before I took it, it was all I could do to finish the shift. I barely slept, I drank a whole bottle of core water before I tried to sleep, but constantly writhing in pain. about 5 am, I took two more advil’s, and a whole bottle of Core water and was, I had 3 bowel movements through the night, and urinated well each time. I stayed in bed until about 11, exhausted, and trying to find a position to ease the pain. I took a soaking bath in epsom salt when I got up
I was diagnosed last year with Sjögren’s syndrome, and I know it has something to do with Rheumatoid Arthritis. My funds for doctor visits are very limited, but I sure hope I don’t have to live like this for the next 40 years, just these 2 days have worn me out!!
