It's almost 5 pm and on the 1200 calories side of things I still have 600+ calories! I barely ate yesterday because of a massive puking migraine and now I'm at my boyfriend's starving. He has no food so well have to order in which will take an hour and be full of more calories than if I would have eaten at home! Plus I'm light headed and have heartburn.

My Baker;s Cyst came back within a few days of it getting it drained. I saw my Rhuemotologist a little over two weeks ago and she ruled out osteoarthritis. She treated my knee pain and the Baker's Cyst with steroid injections and said if the pain comes back I need to come in for a MRI to see if I have any damage to knee and possibly need surgery. Well the pain is back and I can barely walk, stand or sit in a chair. I am in constant pain. I'm hoping to get in to get th...

I stayed calmed explained my pain to him (he actually saw me and not an intern which helped). Turns out I had a cyst under me knee cap!

I can't extend my leg or bend my knee to far in. I'm on tramadol and it isn't making a dent, and I'm taking high dose prescription naproxsyn and that isn't helping either. i can't sleep at night but then I'm tired all day and nod off randomly. My appointment is at 3pm and I'm hoping my dr can help. the worst pain is behind my knee, which is also swollen. I'm just a mess and I just want to know what's wrong and get ... Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:42:11 EST Cedar Point I over did it http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5981763 My feet and ankles are horribly swollen. my right knee, which was bothering me before, is now KILLING ME!!! The worst part is the friend I went there with keeps saying the reason my knee hurts is because of my weight,ignoring the lupus and fibromyalgia. mainly the lupus at this point. I'm crying as I write this because I just got off the phone with him and he told me not to let the pain stop me from exercising, I just need to push thrugh it. he has no clue how much I hurt and hwe doesn't give...

All my clothes are fitting better but I am sooo sore! I rode every ride, sometimes twice. This is the most active I've been in 3 years! My lupus and fibro meds are working.

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:33:50 EST sparkcoach blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5968672 My hardest healthy habit to maintain is eating well on the weekends when I'm at my boyfriend's place or with his family. There is never any healthy food to eat. Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:39:40 EST Some good news on the migraine front http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5962818 My doctor bunpoed my appt to th 23rd from the 28th. So I'm happy. I've had a nonstop migraine for 6 days now. I'm still exercising , mainly yoga. I'm still trowing up , but usuallyonly once during the worst part of the pain. I'm eating as clean as possible but my family isn't making it easing. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

My doctor decided to schedule it a month later than usual. I did okay the first two weeks but now I'm just in pain all the time <BR> I'm still exercising 10 min a day but it's getting harder. I'm trying to stay positive but it's getting difficult. I love you all!! Thu, 16 Jul 2015 12:02:13 EST A little light at the end of a pain tunnel http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5958178 Finally went and saw a GYN for my horrific cramps. I told him everything(including the near psychotic PMS and chronic migraines). So long story short on August 7 th I'm getting the Mirena IUD put in since a people stop getting their periods all together. I'm very nervous after looking it up online.I'm mainly consered about the pain of insertion (considering I'll have massive cramps) and the weight gain.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!! Fri, 19 Jun 2015 10:59:16 EST I hurt but things are looking up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5946196 I saw my rhuemotologist yesterday. We have a new game plan I think once the pain from the cortisone injection in each knee dies down I'm going to be feeling a lot better! <BR> <BR> I'm weening up to taking 600mg of neurontin 4 times a day , I was on 300 mg 4 times, and I'm taking my tramadol 1 pill every 4 hours till my flare up passes. <BR> <BR> I'm feeling very optimistic about everything and hope to start exercising 10+ mminutes a day soon!

Physically things have taken a downturn. my right knee is a bit messes up. I had to where a brace on it for 3 days and now it's a day by day by day thing. I also have a a really bad head and chest cold.

Filled my pillcase which takes about 20-30 minutes. Went to the doctor. Saw my weight and nearly cried... I gained ALOT over the weekend, like an impossible amount. So no I need to lose even more weight whcih I seem to be totally unable to do. Got a cortisone shot in my hip because my joints are falling apart. Got 2 refferals. came home, migraines and allergies abundant. migraine is finally gone but I'm sneezing and have an annoying runny nos... Wed, 27 May 2015 19:48:44 EST Sorry I've been MIA lately http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5932477 Things have been crazy around here lately. I've started exercising again <em>224</em> but it had to be put on the back burner for a little bit to help my mom clean the house (and, ahem, my room <em>2</em> ). But we got it all done and I burned mega calories and toned up doing it from lifting heavy stuff and lots of squats. I haven't lost any weight but I toned up so I'm happy <em>9</em> my clothes are fitting looser! And I found a quote that is helping me get through everything in ... Fri, 22 May 2015 10:34:10 EST I can only play through the pain for so long http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5924895 I did awesome Wednesday and Thursday but today I only got in 15 minutes of cardio and hardly any steps. I woke up exhausted and sore, but I did an easy 1 mile DVD walk. ~1 pm I started to feel queasy and the I started throwing up. Then can a horrific migraine. So I'm in the dark now trying to get rid of it but nothing is working. I have PMS so that means an upswing in hormonal migraines. Yuck. <BR> <BR> I hope everyone is having a better Friday than I am! <em>247</em> Fri, 8 May 2015 15:21:36 EST very long weekend!!( And few days) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5919497 Sorry I was MIA for awhile. I was house sitting for Shawn's boss. I stayed there for 3 and a half days taking care of the house and 5 cats and 1 huge black lab and one smaller dog. Have I mentioned I'm allergic to all? But I should get a little money out of it. I gained some weight <em>15</em> because all we ate was their crappy food. But I'm back on eating healthy and exercising today! I slept great last night! Finally! <BR> <BR> Wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday! Go Grey Wolves! ...

Leg work with bands, some yoga and stretching and a very easy session on the elliptical. Now if only I could get rid of these cramps LOL. Tue, 14 Apr 2015 07:42:27 EST Mu doctor is a jerk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5909441 Saw my doctor, well saw his resident. After an excruciating exam she went to talk to my doctor. Then he came in and prescribed me antibiotics. And nothing else. I am in agony every second of the day. I am swollen to the point where I am embarressed to go out in public because my breast are so obviously 2 very different sizes. I can't exercise, walk, or sit without hurting, Or sleep. Needless to say I am not in good mood. Hope everyone has a howling good weekend! <em>306</em> <em>386</em>...

I have a small tear in my rotator cuff. They gave me 10 pain pills and told me I have to move my shoulder around so it doesn't freeze up. The pain pills are so I can do this without screaming <em>211</em> I've been working out today just really modifying it, like using weights only on my good arm and doing aerobics but reducing the range and pace of motion with my bad shoulder. It annoying on so many levels! But I will work around it and not make it w...
