Warm weather starting to cool off.
Tuesday, January 07, 2014
The weather has still been in the upper 70's & low 80's. It is just starting to cool off. I haven't been online this last year due to pain everywhere in my hands, shoulders, etc. I am pretty sure it is the fibromyalgia rather than a Lupus flare up. I get my Holter monitor tomorrow and will wear for 48 hrs. I see my family physician on Monday morning when she should have the results. I am beginning to think the pain I was having may have been due to this flare up that may have just been starting up. I have been pretty good about walking for at least an hour each day. Today I went to the market around 11:30am, and then I did about 1 hour of housework. Frank went with me to take Phred for a short walk and that is just about all I could today. Didn't get my steps or miles in but I did do a lot.
It was pretty difficult for me at the market and I should have had Frank go with me. Just glad I didn't have someone asking me to reach up high for them to get something off the shelf. It was all I could do to reach the few items I needed that were a bit high, like soup cans. If I didn't have to lift above my shoulders I think I could almost handle the pain in my hands a bit easier or not.
Doing better today after 4 days of hell. It all started Friday morning after not being able to sleep all night on Thursday. I have suffered from insomnia for years, take medication and most times it works. I can only hope it continues to get better. This normally happens when it is cold not warm. Very strange indeed.
Hope everyone is doing well and keeping on track with their workouts. xo
