I have been lucky to experience a good few months of health and energy levels. I've been the closest I can get to the old me, except for my medication and aches and pains etc. And this on going dry, unproductive cough.
But this week I'm all in.
Fatigue has appeared again, forcing me to bed every day for rest and naps.
I'm not sure if what I'm experiencing is bursitis or sacroiliac joint inflammation etc - but my pelvic area is aching and burning and I'm getting shooting pains down my legs.
My hips hurt and my knees are giving way.
But unlike the last time my bursitis became acute, needing my first steroid injection and I was tender on the outer side of my hip/thigh and I couldn't drive or lie down or sit without fighting back the tears - this pain and aching and burning is inside my pelvic area. I do have tenderness on my outer hip but that is normal levels for me.
Then yesterday I noticed a small red sore on my head, near hair line / forehead with hair loss.
I still have the dry cough.
Interestingly at my 12 monthly eye test, my optician told me he could see signs that my eyes were dry.
This has been very noticeable to me this week, I have felt the dryness and had tired eyes. And my mouth has been very dry.
I still have tinnitus.
And I can feel myself becoming impatient and grumpy.
I'm hoping this is a minor blip. I've had energy and so have been doing a lot. Maybe I've done too much and pushed too far. But it's so hard not to get carried away when you feel good. We all crave normality. But maybe I haven't paced myself nearly enough and have brought this on myself?
I have an appointment on Monday to talk to my GP about my second appt at London Bridge on 27th October.
So I'll be talking about trying an asthma pump to see if my cough is asthma related and getting some eye drops, Consultant recommended Hylo Forte?? Not sure if I remembered that correctly.
So, only time will tell.
