Hi everyone. New to this group. Its been 7 years, a trip to Mayo, and then another two yrs before the blood work gave us a name. Finally I'm not just crazy anymore. I fell down stairs in the fall, a couple of bad spells, and then Bells Palsy to end 2017. Since like I said we finally got a label, which means little (other then a bit of validation).
MCTD and Diabetes.
So Jan 1st started Keto and the Gym. Brain wise I was doing so great. The pain was not good but I was willing to fight through to accomplish my goals. Friday afternoon the pain after the gym was so bad I couldnt push. I couldn't make it home. I ended up in tears as they had to ice down both legs (I hate ice). They still have not recovered. The pain is so bad ad makes the feel disconnected from me , as crazy as that sounds. Now I think I'm tail spinning. Im waking up with dead hand, both shoulders are in flamed, so I can't lift my arms. I'm exhausted. But the legs are awful, they just burn. They burn so deep.
"People trying to help kept telling me Friday its okay you will work past it. Your body will train. Its your body changing"
I wanted to say "No , no it won't. I will pay for this"
I'm tired. Im so tired of not being in control of my own body. I just want to be the me in my head.
Hello again!I posted a while ago and wanted to update everyone on my throat, it is the most bothersome sysmptom for me. I went to an ear nose and throat specialist in July, she put a tube down my throat and said all good up to the vocal cords go see a gastroenterologist. I went to see her today, she will do the same but down to my stomach. She says it sounds more like Sjogrens than like...
Today I went to see the Family Dr and the Rheumatologist. The family Dr took 3 tubes of blood to check my blood count, a metabolic profile, TSH, and A1C. My BP was 140/98, so he was concerned and talked about upping my meds. After some errands and a meal, I went to the rheumy who was concerned that my BP was too low. It was 103/70. You see, my meds had finally kicked it! Anyway, he took my hair...
