Sore, Pain n Glucose
Wednesday, May 04, 2016
Well Payton is settling in rather well. We've had him as of 6pm tonight for a full week.
In this time I've been up every morning around 7am (most uncommon as I dislike getting up before 9am) and out of the house by 730 to give Payton an hours walk /run /training session.
The nurologist I saw told me that being MORE active would mean less pain in my lower back and hips he was WRONG I'm in way more pain then before. My daily pain scale has gone from 3 to 5 up to 5 to 7 plus my left leg and foot have enlarged a little (retaining fluid).
I was already active getting in 10k steps a day, but now it's 15k plus I'm getting in. I get home from our walk and can bearly bend down to put his breakfast down. Climing our stairs so I can change into my work clothing, I'm saying to myself "I can do this. I can do this!" All the while pushing through the pain.
Truth is I don't know how long I can do this. I am a pusher so I know I'll push through it regardless of if it's actually doing damage to me or not because I'm tge only one who can do it.
My husband can't do the morning walk because the medication he's on for his eplipsy knocks him out until close to 9am he can get up earlier but he's more prone to get triggered if he does (at the moment as he's only been on the new medication for two weeks and it takes a month before it's fully in the system).
Over all ya I'm active and my husband is more active then he was which is good. But my pain level hasn't gone down its gone up instead. I've got a medical appointment next week so will talk with my GP about this but in the meantime it is what it is.
Glucose control wise I've totally needed less insulin then before which is great for my medical budget.
