Things have been busy. The Little Man is walking and getting into everything. It’s also summer which means camping trips and such. I was feeling really good with all this heat. I did my best not to complain because it got REALLY hot REALLY fast. Something has gone funny under the surface though. It’s still warm but things feel broken again. I am seriously thinking about investing in a barometre so I get some warning at least. The burning pain of the infamous “T-Zone” has been mild. Hands/wrists, hips, ankles and feet have been bad. The second joint of my right big toe, the Medial Cuneiform, hurts A LOT and makes walking an interesting adventure…here’s a picture:
My shoulders have been pretty bad this week too. My right one is particularly pissed off, I did something to it picking up the boychild last night. I’ve been experimenting with only taking my afternoon dose of Lyrica if I feel crappy. Not sure of that’s affecting how sore I’ve been lately or not. Either way, it sucks. The Psoriasis on my head is getting pretty bad, I can actually see the red scaly spots now.
My jaw is trying to explode again. Feels like someone is jabbing an icepick into the bottom left spot where the wisdom tooth used to be. Starting to wonder if I should go to the dentist. It’s not just the one spot that hurts, the other side hurts in the same spot as do the joints themselves.
Okay. Moderately productive day. Didn’t get to laze around as much as I wanted but I got some good down time in. Since I took some painkillers at 5am when the Little Man woke us up around 9am I wasn’t feeling too bad in the pain department. Just tired. Hands are doing the dry, cracking, bleeding thing. Doesn’t matter how much or what kind of moisturiser I put on. I’m thinking of putting on some of my steroid cream before bed. Here’s to hoping the little guy goes to sleep soon.
Today: Naproxen x 1, Acetemetophen & Methacarbanol (a muscle relaxer) x 1, Wellbutrin 300mg, Lyrica 150mg, Cipralex 20mg, Cymbalta 30mg
Been really stiff and sore, very low energy levels. Still managed to get out a couple times this week for some exstensive walking.
The psoriasis (or what MAY be psoriasis) is driving me buggy right now. Have had to pull out the topical steroids. My scalp, eyebrows and the areas behind my ears feel like they are on fire. Eyebrows were flaking real good. Scalp about medium. The spots behind the ear are new. I’m trying to remember to take more pictures.
Only a tiny bit of flaking on the scalp in that spot. I can’t get pictures of the other ones right now, they are hiding in my hair.
