Symptoms Log - Nov 3-5, 2017
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 my shirt back up and hide them. For the first time that I can ever recall, they looked too big and I wanted to hide them because I was self conscious……. That's a big change from the days when I so desperately wanted them.
I’ve noticed unlike before kids I HIDE my boobs now. I use the bras that keep them smallest. I wear the higher necked tops and more modest tops, especially around my mom friends because I don't want to be “that” mom.
I miss how I cannot wear button up tops because no batter how big the garment, the bust never fits.
Feeling really tired again at 1:30. Managed to do a 25 minute weight training workout. Cardio was hard, always feel like I’m strugglin to catch my breath. My joints hurt again. This deep aching, like I’m really old.
If I kneel I feel really stiff and sore when I stand up.
Today my hands keep itching on my fingers and backs of my hands. My inner ears are also itchy.
Feeling excited but nervous about surgery.
Experiencing chest pain migrating from right to left side. Dull aching. Heartburn fealing. Head feels foggy tonight, like my eyes are blurring or I’m slightly drunk (fuzzy). Just feel off.
Woke up around 2 am started sneezing incessantly and within minutes my face swelled, nose got completely congested so I couldn’t breath and then running like a faucet. Lasted for 30 minutes before I got back sleep.
This morning I woke up and my face is really swollen, my hands and fingers are swollen and tingly and tight feeling (enough that my veiny hands look smooth and not veiny!). My mouth was full of phlegm and liquid but as before I am not sick and don’t feel sick. My eyes are red and itchy and watering.
Also my eyes were really blurry first thing. Like I couldn’t see hardly anything and had to rub them and blink a lot to be able to see the way I normally do. It lasted a few minutes after wake up, but this is a newer symptom. I haven’t had unusual things with my eyesight until now.
I haven’t been exposed to anything different then before. This is something that happens frequently.
My body is really sore from my short workout yesterday, like unusually sore. Remember I was a fitness guru back in my pre-baby days. I used to hit the gym for over an hour and a half at 4 am before work. I know what over extending myself feels like and what normal muscle fatigue and soreness feels like. This is not that. It’s a deep aching sensation, that I can only compare to having experienced when I have been on my feet all day at an event walking on concrete or something.
My knees feel okay today which is unusual. But my shoulders and collarbone are stiff and store feeling.
Did 30 minutes of cardio, underside of both boobs felt sore and tender. Really thirsty today, drinking constantly and cannot quench thirst. Been more phlegmy all day today. Nose is clear now.
Fingers still swollen. Very tired again early afternoon.
