storm pains

Sep 03, 2012 - 0 comments

It's overcast here today and I had the usual storm-related burning pain in my arms while trying to fold laundry.  Arms felt heavy like I'm folding scraps of iron, not laundry. (fm)

I had a strange new pain in my very upper and almost inner left thigh.  It was pulsating and felt like the pain I'll get in my upper arms when a storm is coming.  Only lasted a good 20 seconds but quite noticeable.  Not the everyday sort of ache I usually have. Shortly after, I felt the same pain in my upper and under arm.  They almost felt like burning pains.   (new)


I have a weird non-painful twinge in the inner corner of my left eye.  When I blink or look around, it feels like it's trying to water.  (new)

Had a quick slight balance woopsie in the kitchen.   Had me taking a slight wobble correction step.

To catch up on what I've had lately since I'm new at tracking:
-Off and on over the past week I've had short times of a sharp pain radiating up to either side of my neck and sometimes into the sides of my face.  (new)
-Ever since I've been on Cymbalta, I've had a tightness on opposite sides of my back like a line straight across with no tightness in the middle.  The right side gives me problems and is usually sore.  I seem to always be trying to stretch it.  But this sensation and the pain associated is no where near as bad on 30 mg than it was at 60 mg.
-Had an infection in the right eye gland (bottom/outside) a few months back.  My eye area was swollen for a few days and then swelled up the whole right side of my face for a couple more days before it went away. My entire eye area hurt like hell if touched. Some medicated Visine helped it heal faster.
-I grind my teeth TERRIBLY and have always grinded my teeth.  Last year it got so bad I broke 2 teeth within a month's time.  I must have grinded my teeth pretty bad last night, as my jaw and cheekbones are sore.
-Have noticed emotional and mental changes over the past month.  Husband has noticed social isolation.  I've felt fragile and sense I may be going through a life crisis.  Still need to talk to doctor about switching to a better anti-depressant.

Suppose to have an MRI this week.  Had nerve conduction test last week.

Outdoor Birthday Party

Sep 02, 2012 - 0 comments

Was outside in the shade at a park for a birthday party.  It was very hot and fairly humid.  I had brain fog, fatigue, anxiety, a brief time where I found it difficult to breath.  I started focusing on my breathing and was then ok.  I think it was brought on by humidity.  When we got home I went to take a nap and slept about 11 hours.  I woke up on the 3rd with extreme stiffness (more than usual).   I also kept regurgitating during the times I felt overheated after eating some food that wouldn't usually upset my stomach.
