day #4 flare

Jul 07, 2009 - 0 comments

Symptoms are still pretty severe, but the most annoying problem is this fatigue.  It is out of control.  My legs, feet, arms and hands just feel so heavy, weak and tired.  

This is really affecting my life and my ability to spend quality time and care for my children.  It is ridiculous.  I am only 31 yrs old and my body feels like it is 80.  

It is breaking my heart. My kids are looking up at me because they want to play but it is physically impossible for me to.  I can't get any house work done today.

Flare day 3

Symptoms seem a little bit today, but are still bothersome.  While in the shower today when I bent my head and back forward I felt an electrical shock sensation that started at the base of my spine and went up my back towards my neck.  It made me jump I felt like I was being shocked.

Symptoms are still pretty severe today.  I am completely worthless.  I attempt to get things done, but I just can't push through today.

Bad day

Jul 04, 2009 - 0 comments

I have felt good for about a week and a half.  My symptoms were very mild.  They were all still there, but very mild.  My fatigue was almost completely gone.  I still had mild muscle weakness, but nothing like it was.

Today they came back full blown.  I could hardly move because I am in so much pain.  The fatigue is the worst I have ever felt it.  I can hardly communicate out loud.  I can think what i want to say and it makes sense until I open my mouth.

I keep losing things.  I can't think striaght.  I am all over the place.  Horrible mood swings because I am so frustrated.  

Both of my hands are bothering me today.  I can hardly grip anything and I can't make a fist with my right hand.  Which is weird because usually my left hand is the problem.

I have vertigo and I am so dizzy.  My head feels very heavy and my feet don't want to walk when I want to walk.  I keep dropping things.  I fell in the kitchen, but caught myself on the counter.  My brain thinks my feet are walking, but they won't work and then I trip and fall.

I will be fine one moment and then cry the next.  I couldn't even go with my husband and kids to take them to the fire works tonight.

The fatigue is so horrible today.  I was unable to get anything done.  I would try, be on my feet a few minutes and then have to sit down.
