I have a perpetual twitch in my left eye. I have had occasional facial twitching but this does not go away. It has been at least a week now. Should I be concerned? Is this a side effect? I do still have Rituxan in my body. It is exhausting. I get such a strange array of symptoms. I never know what is illnesses and what is drug effects. I had a good day yesterday. I managed to clean bathrooms, kitchen and windows Wow. Paying for it today lol. My husband is not a housekeeper or cook. Sometimes I think he deliberately does it badly so that I am forced to do it myself. He is such a mama's boy. She is the only one who can get him to do anything. I take full responsibility for perpetuating the women's role in the home. But I still did all cooking and cleaning while bringing in three incomes and working fourteen hours a day. If he cooks, it is microwave , processed poop. Even my dogs will not eat it. They love chicken but will not touch this stuff. I have finally convinced him to limit the level of processed foods he consumes. All that lunch meet. Now he has salmon, eggs tuna. I think the key to to be balanced. I do not do vitamins etc, I try to ensure our diet is well balanced. I grew up on a farm. I have tried vegetarian diets but it is not for me. I do try to limit foods that promote inflammation.
I have three new appointments next week. I seem to only leave the house for medical reasons. At least it gets me out. I keep a fit bit on. I walk an average of three miles daily. I definitely feel better with excersise. That seems limited to walking but it at least keeps my weight under control. I am keeping it to 110. A good weight for me at 5'3". But the drugs make it very difficult. They are all drugs which create weigh gain. There was a lovely young nurse in the infusion room with me. She gained over 300 pds on Prednisone. She is as round as she is tall. She is 400pds and 5'2" tall. She is still very physically active. She recently walked a marathon. Being in the medical profession she is very conscious of the risks associated to weight but is powerless over this drug. It keeps her alive but at a tremendous cost. I know from reading posts you are all incredible. The way you manage your life with these debilitating , painfull conditions is an inspiration. Women are so very strong 🏋️♀️ Hang tuff . Anyone with knowledge of twitching, contact me .
