Dec 10 - this morning my knees, shoulders, neck and collarbone area are really stiff and achy. I could hardly walk when I got out of bed! It's slowly improving since I've been up but it was a lot worse today. I have more inflammation in my face this morning, watery eyes, runny nose, really phlegmy feeling in my throat today, trouble clearing it and wanting to swallow a lot. Hands are tight and stiff as well, like it's hard to move them and close my hands into fists.

I keep forgetting the fridge door open. It's not me not closing it properly. I literally get something and walk away and then the little "bell is open alarm" goes off. Yesterday was bad, I think I did it a dozen times throughout the day. I thought I closed it each time, but apparently not.I feel like I am going in circles. I go to do somet...

"Breast implant illness is a period of sickness affecting the body caused by silicone or saline breast implants. Symptoms of breast implant illness vary from body to body due to personal differences, the type of breast implants and the progression of the illness however it appears that a few symptoms show up a little earlier and more consistently such as fatigue/low energy, cognitive dysfunction (brain fog, memory loss), headaches, joint and muscle pain, hair loss, recurring infections, swollen lymph nodes and swollen glands, rashes, IBS, problems with thyroid and adrenals."

I keep this pretty simplistic in writing style just to cover the details. It's more for reference and perspective to look back on in the days, weeks and months (and years) ahead to monitor my own health progress and see any differences. It's so much harder to go back on memory (And less reliable) hence the reason I am documenting what happens each day. I usually make notes on a piece of paper throughout the day as they occur so I don't forget later on. 

Nov 25 - Woke up with really swollen face again today, even bags under my eyes were puffed out. Runny nose. Sneezing. Watery, puffy eyes. Tight/swollen hands.Trouble swallowing, literally felt like something IS stuck in my throat. Took about an hour to clear that sensation. Itchy arms (despite slathering lotion on!!!). Feel REALLY tired, went to b...

Nov 3

My muscles were sore and achy today. Really phlegmy in the morning. Swollen face. Super tired by noon again, felt like I needed a nap, but my youngest wasn’t tired so I just laid on the couch watching him.

Struggled with thoughts today. I went to my fridge 4x and couldnt’ remember each time why I went there or what I was looking for. This part is frustrating because I KNOW this isn’t normal for me.I feel like I’m losing my mind, literally.

My knee joints are particularly sore today, but I haven’t done much except shovel snow. It’s a sharp stabbing pain if I move.

Fatigue, swollen face, runny eyes, phlegmy throat at wake up. 

A thought in passing, it was funny I did a hot yoga class a few weeks ago and for the first time when I looked in the mirror and saw my boobs hanging out, I had to pull m...
