Yesterday I woke up feeling really well and thought I was in for a good day. (You know that pleasurable feeling when you don't ache and its going to be a good day as opposed to a bad one) I was secretly hoping it was going to be a crap day as I was having my SST test and I just think, if I am unwell surely my adrenals will not perform properly and something will show in the test (sounds mad but I'm sure some of you will understand)
So off we go for my SST. I have waited since February for it!
We drove for about 40 minutes to get to the hospital. It was a gloriously sunny day but unfortunately it gave me a real migraine (light sensitivity, tree lined roads) by the time we got to the hospital. My headache developed into whole body aches and pains.
I rested for a while before I went in for the test and managed to get it done.
All day after the test I was good for nothing. My legs could hardly carry me. I don't think it was anything to do with the SST, I felt the same as I do when I have a bad day with my FM/CFS, muscle and joint aches and pains with a headache.
I have never before associated my whole body pain with light sensitivity. It has set me thinking that there must be a neurological connection to FM/CFS/Hypo.
Something else to chat to the GP about!
I have to go to the Eye hospital tomorrow re floaters and flashing lights to the one side of my vision. My optician has sent me only as a precaution. I hope I see a good Doctor, I will discuss the light sensitivity with him.
