I did not realize how lucky I’ve been that we’ve had a mild winter. The storm blowing in right now has my muscle spasming so painfully. It is not a quick spasm either. They last for three or four seconds and then I get a couple seconds break before they spasm again. I’m getting a headache too. It probably does not help that I was so foolish on Monday. I thought I’d try driving to my doctor’s appointment over an hour away. Even with relaxing at stoplights, deep breathing and making sure I relaxed in between, I couldn’t make the drive home and was so exhausted that I slept all the way home. Yesterday my legs hurt but today my muscles along my hips and my muscles along my shins are spasming.
I am so tired of being a burden to everyone. My hubby has to take of work to take me to appointments or my Mom takes me but then my hubby still has to drive me an hour and a half to her house, so that is three hours of him driving after he’s worked all day. Then after my appointment my Mom drives me home and then drives herself home which amounts to almost four hours of driving for her. I wanted to be able to drive myself to my appointment, but obviously that isn’t going to happen.
Just tried to do laundry but that is going to have to wait another day. Just typing this is making my finger muscles and arm muscles cramp. Hope the hubby can cook dinner. If not, the eleven-year-old will be making us frozen pizzas again.
Quick note on my doctor’s appointment, my blood work showed inflammation so he upped my Naproxen and told me to up my Baclofen before bed to help me sleep better. He’s concerned but wants to see if the Naproxen helps.
