Howdy! I found myself with a few extra moments and thought, "hey, I could write a little more in my blog!" How very addicting this blog is....and it's helped me in so many ways, to get things off my chest. If you've got things to share that are on YOUR chest, sign up for a blog and start blogging away...I guarantee you, you won't regret it. The ONLY thing I ask of you is....please leave me some feedback. It helps me to know what you like, don't like, so forth. Please tell me if I bore you to tears and you are to the point of unsubscribing! I'd hate for that to happen....but I can't read your mind. So PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK! You don't have to like every post, but even just clicking the "like" button I have under each post tells me a lot. So far, the only one clicking it is ME! LOL.....so I'd really appreciate it if you could help me out in that way. Thanks!!!
I fell asleep again at 7pm tonight and woke up in a puddle of sweat again. I don't know if this is a fibro thing, a medication thing, or a "something else that hasn't been discovered" type of thing! Do any of you that have fibro and take the medication Savella have profuse swelling? I think I have narrowed it down to that medication, because before I was taking it, I was fine. Of course I'd sweat a little...who wouldn't in the blustery 110 degree heat of an AZ summer? But never in a cool house with a fan blowing on me all the time! When I go outside it's even worse. Yesterday when my husband and I went out on an errand, I was so sweaty, I could practically slide out of the car. My hair looked like I just came from the shower. It's been so oily, lately and that's because of the sweating. When I go out in public, I attract stares from all around because my shirt is stuck to me and my hair is sopping wet. I hate it!!! Does anyone have ANY advice for me? When I see the doctor again, I'll run it past her. She probably will stand there and cry because I've given her ONE more thing she can't explain or solve! I'm just one big question mark, I think!!!
My doctor is wonderful, That is half the battle of fibromyalgia. I'm sure those with it can attest to the fact that a bad doctor can make you feel terrible, they don't believe you, and you never want to go back to another one again. We ALL have had that. My advice is: give two, three or even four more docs a chance. NOT ALL of them believe the same, especially in today's world. When I was first diagnosed, I had a hard time finding a good doctor who even believed that fibromyalgia EXISTED, let alone believed in it, until I found the rheumatologist in La Jolla, CA at Scripps Clinic. But then we moved from Yuma to Tucson and it just got to be too far away to see her. We were in the process of moving from Tucson to San Antonio and to find a new doctor when mom got suddenly ill and died. That left me with the task of finding my wonderful doctor here in Phoenix. I wouldn't trade her in for ANYTHING. She saw me at my absolute worst and has seen me through the traumatic grieving of my mom's death, my flare-ups from Hell, my monster blood clot the whole entire length of my left leg and now the foot swelling and body sweating. I hope all of you can find an amazing doctor like I have.
Well, think I'll go back to bed and hopefully have a better day tomorrow. And I will continue my saga story of my past....it gets better, I promise! Hope you all have a good night and please do let me know what you think of my posts. I'd really appreciate it.
