What is it with me??

with 2 comments

I’m in a bit of a sorry state at present.

It is nothing big, just a whole lot of little things that are conspiring to make me miserable.

Number 1: Last night I had the misfortune to develop a head cold. Not too bad, but not recommended, either. Lots of phlegm, not so lots of sleep. Sneezing my head off. Running nose (also Rudolph-like red in colour). Particularly not compatible with my neck pain. Which brings us to…

Number 2: My neck, while feeling incrementally better, I must admit, is not 100% yet. It is feeling on a par, maybe even worse, than it did prior to the visit to the chiropractor. I still have the tension headachey thing, ‘specially at night. Also very unpleasant muscle stiffness in my shoulder blades, which I suspect are also not aligned as well as they should be. WTF is going on here? One minute the whole set-up is fine, the next I have aches and pains all over the place and it’s not even like I had a wild night on the town to account for it.

Number 3: more pain, this time in my wrist. I have had this recurring problem since my teens that my wrist will go through a period of being very tender. I suspect that it’s a ligament that gets strained. It hasn’t troubled me for years, but of course it couldn’t miss jumping on the bandwagon in my time of need!

Number 4: A slight (but nonetheless disturbing, as always) case of optic neuritis. Probably about three flashing purple dots, at most, per day, which is no need for panic, but still unsettling, especially as I have been treating with my homeopathic ‘wonder drops’ for quite some time now.

Number 5: Electric buzzes up and down my leg in the mornings. Certainly spoils any lying-in I was planning on doing! It  could be nothing, but then, it never is. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts…!

Number 6: Finding out that someone on the Fingolimod trials died, and another one is in a coma. I’d be lying if I said that it was really worrying or upsetting me, hence the low position on my list. But it’s not thrilling me either, though. Kind of highlights the fact that I am a guinea pig on trials and anything could happen, theoretically.

Number 7: Can’t go to the gym because of the head cold and the muscle pain.

Number 8: Still feeling bratty from suspected PMS and feel like picking a fight with someone and causing a spot of trouble. Hah!

That is all. But it’s enough for me to be feeling distinctly unperky.
