A few days before Christmas I had a really bad flare in SI joint pain. I figured out it was SI joint pain thanks to some friends who have more of an understanding of anatomy than I do. (I almost wish I’d taken anatomy in college, almost.) Possible piriformis syndrome accompanied this for a few days as well. I treated the muscle problems, as they resolved it turned into a headache that lasted from Sunday to Tuesday afternoon because the new migraine meds I tried didn’t exactly work. Tuesday was tricky. Wednesday was better because there was less pain but I still had a low grade headache that seemed to be connected to fatigue levels. (Also had a 2 hour nap on Wednesday.)
Now it’s Thursday and I’m realizing the only thing that has improved is the pain levels. I’ve had tingles, chills, pins and needles, fatigue, nausea, an increase in appetite, way major brain fog, more fatigue, bladder problems multiple nights, regular levels of pain, abnormal levels of pain, muscle spasms, worse muscle rigidity and now on top of it the “OMGIT’SACOLD” immune system response is coming back. I took some prednisone middle of December to get all that to stop and it did. BUT it’s coming back. (I had a cold after being at a beer and music festival 11/1/2014.) I have no cold! Body! There is no cold! Calm thyself! Citizen! Enhance your calm!
I said fuck it and took some nyquil tonight. I’m not sick but it’ll help the symptoms. Maybe with a full night’s rest something will calm down.
Earlier I had a crazy prednisone type hunger – but no changes in medicine and definitely no prednisone.
My body is cycling through as many different issues/problems/symptoms/things/pains that it can come up with.
Five more days until my next appointment with the neurologist. I’ll wait till tomorrow morning to decide if I should call the neurologist tomorrow.
