So, I haven't been sick since the last time, which is wonderful. I began to take a multi-vitamin daily, so maybe that helps. I'm trying so hard to follow what is in that book I read.
I was doing okay, until last weekend when pain was coming and going, and going to different parts of my body. Sunday night I had extreme pain in my legs, I mainly felt it in my right thigh and upper right arm, it was so difficult to walk, and then Monday, not only were they still hurting, but the left arm started to hurt and my neck, shoulders, and shoulder blades.
To top it all off, it was raining Monday all morning. You best believe I called out Monday!! Tues, I went to work, which was dumb of me, bc I was still hurting, I couldn't walk during my shift. By Wednesday I was better.
In my mind it was a small flareup and the only thing I could come up with as to why I was feeling that way, was bc I was eating take-out food... I wasn't used to it bc I've been trying to eat healthy, I eliminated High Fructose Corn Syrup, and I started getting Organic foods, eating more fruits and veggies, etc.
So, with eating takeout, twice a week and whatnot, I was harming myself. That's the only thing that has been different.
Idk. I see my doctor next week - its been the 3 month mark since I began both medications. I really don't like the bedtime one, I can stay in bed waaay too long.
I wanna try trail and error again - this time, without any medications, and continue eating organic, a healthy diet, and exercise when I can. I feel like I need to do this. I want to know if the medications are actually helping me. Is it really suppressing my pain, or is it the other things I am doing?
Maybe it's a combination of things...All I know is that if I can suppress my pain with other alternatives than medications, I am going to do it. I'm going to try.
Idk. I have some much going through my head, I think I need to sit down & jot everything down to get my thoughts straight.
I think I need to go back to the diary I was keeping. I've been doing days here and there, but it's never consistent, and I think it's important, especially in this particular situation where I'm wondering what is helping, etc.
just when I thought things were gonna work out.
3 Months. 4 months. ;-/
