The past week I spent much of the week in a self-induced flare up. What I mean by this is that I was not as strict with my diet, I consumed more sugar, I didn't keep up with as many of the good food choices I typically do, and I also pushed myself physically more then my body is ready for.

I always used to get "weather change" headaches, it appears they may have returned. Still beats headaches every single day! I also had minor nausea for a brief period one morning that went away. My knees were a bit more stiff feeling but not as bad as before explant, just not as good as they've felt since explant. It only last a day. I also had some minor sinus stuff show up...
