worst flare ever!
Yesterday morning, I got up and felt ok, except for the morning stiffness. I had noticed, that I was swollen all over, my face, eyes, arms, hands, upper body, thighs and knees, except for my feet and ankles. It looked like a bad edema all over.
Usually, when I am swollen like this, I have to urinate alot and get rid of the fluid. But yesterday, I only urinated ca. 4 times all day and the swelling stayed with me.
Even with the swelling, I didn't feel bad.
At about 11am, I've got one of those ocular migranes, no pain, just zig zag lines in my field of vision, it lasted about 30 minutes.
I was off work yesterday and I am off today.
It was my husbands birthday yesterday, so I made him his favorite food, homemade Lasagne. I had already cooked the noodles, made the sauce and all I had left, was putting it all together and throw it in the oven.
As I got up to finish the dinner prep, I got very dizzy and a wave of extreme weakness went through my body. I had a hard time standing up, or moving my arms. It was def a huge lead blanket that was draped over me. With help of my hubby, I did finish the Lasagne.
I then started to get nauseated and had a slight sore stomach.
Needless to say, I didn't eat ( that is rare). All I wanted to do, is going to bed.
This morning I got up, a little less swollen. I slept for 9 hours (rare), went to urinate and my urin was totally clear, no color to it. I still feel yucky and somewhat weak, but a little better than yesterday.
I am glad that I am off work today as well.
I think this is a flare, today I have alot of joint pain.
The way I felt yesterday, is the worst I have ever felt, with a flare. It was so bad, I considered going to the hospital.
Well, I have wined enough. Thank you for listening.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
