Many of you know that I’m still fighting my migraine, that I’ve had for just over 18 months. Some days are better than others but all days are tied to that monkey on my back named, Fibro, and all days hurt like Hell, it’s just a matter of how much pain I’m experiencing.
While the migraine sucks and I hate it, that’s not what has my Fibro all up in a tizzy lately, to be honest, I don’t know what has caused I’m Fibro to be all worked up into a tizzy. What I do know is that I’m in excruciating amounts of pain, the likes of which I haven’t felt in…a long time, especially to this degree.
When my Fibro first began, officially 12 years ago, I felt like I had the flu – achy, sore, muscle cramps everywhere. Lately, I’ve been in so much pain that feels like it goes right down to my bones. In all seriousness and quite literally, my body feels as if I’ve been beaten with a baseball bat with the pain going all the way through me.
For the most part, there are no outward signs of what I’m experiencing – nothing new, right? Well, except for this morning when I woke up with all the joints in my hands swollen and red and both of my knees stiff and swollen. Or like as I sit here, writing this my back is in horrible pain, which radiates down my legs and makes my toes go numb – most of the time – right now it just feels a whole lot like a knife is wedged between my vertebrae, right between my shoulder blades.
Have I mentioned how much I hate Fibro because I do, ya know?
