I have felt so blah in the past couple of weeks. On Monday, I was at the gym, working out and I had to stop after 15 minutes. I tried to keep going but my stomach kept turning. If my body tells me to stop, there is no way I am not going to listen. My side was also hurting and I thought it may be a bladder infection or something like that. Every time I go to the doctor for something like that, everything comes back fine. Well, the pain on my upper right side is very excruciating. Went to the doctor's. She ran a lot of tests. Everything came back normal. :( I wish I knew what was causing the side pain. It's hard to stand, or lay down. Sitting is okay but not much better.
I miss feeling healthy consistently.
My family is always explaining to me how my eyes look "dull" and "different" and they always know when don't feel well. It is so frustrating. The doctor said that's prob because I get dizzy because I am anemic. I have been taken iron pills so I asked her to test my levels again. She said I am not anemic anymore. That is nice but you can see where that is frustrating.
I cannot exercise with this side pain. It's my upper back and side on the right side. This is the 4th day it felt like this. It hurts so much worse when I breathe in. Ouch! I had this pain before but it always subsided enough and it has never been this bad. When I don't feel well, I fall off the wagon. I care about my health but at the same, I would rather sleep off the pain than plan a healthy or healthier version of a meal.
I can't change doctor's either. I am on my dad's health insurance plan. I don't even know how much longer I am allowed to be on there anyway. It's just way too expensive. They raised the copay by $10 and what they charge monthly is just ridiculous. I have an appointment next month and then we'll cancel. I am not really too upset about it. I doubt I would have found anything else out and I am just grateful I was able to find out a couple of answers.
:( To the team challenges I am/was participating in, sorry I haven't been around. As soon as I am in less pain, hopefully, I will be able to actively participate.
