I had a high IC pain weekend (nothing available to me could keep the pain even at a bearable level on Saturday) and then on Sunday the crazy leg stuff started again. It was a "horomone" weekend and I do know that for some reason the leg thing is worse during the "onset". My doctor keeps saying I have RLS - but I just don't know. Part of the problem is it's so hard to EXPLAIN. I don't have the urge to move my legs around, but the do appear to cramp up and I find myself stretching them out to try and help. It hurts to be honest, and it was difficult to walk at times. My legs were very shaky and my knees kept hyper-extending when I was walking. It is strange to say the least.
I saw pictures of myself from over Christmas and then one my daughter took the other day and the weight loss is SHOCKING. Seriously, my arms are 1/2 the size they were, and my entire body has changed. I have currently lost at least 20 pounds and it still seems to be coming off somehow. I told my daughter I need a before and after picture - unfortunately in this case, it was not weight that needed to be lost. (I'm about 5'3" and am weighing around 101 - 103 pounds currently.)
I demanded that my pay be cut back effective today to 34 hours per week (realistically what I'm still working even with 4 day weeks) so that I can stop burning up my paid leave - so I'm feeling a bit better about that, I don't think my husband is real happy about my decision but it's a minimal difference.
I had someone else ask me about Lyme disease over the weekend. No, I have not been tested. I have no idea to be honest, but realize it could be possible. (Even if all these specialists don't.) All I know is I'm SICK - and need a break.
