Fibromyalgia flared its ugly head again, right in the midst of trying to adjust to the new thyroid meds and too much fatigue from the Sjogrens issues, and the tremors.
We took a ride to see my dad yesterday, one day after the sciatica flare calmed down. My dad's going to be 85 in June and he been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Sadly he beginning to struggle remembering and recognizing faces of his grandchildren. I showed him a pic of my two daughters at one's graduation from college, and I could see him struggling to figure out who they were.😢
In the past 2-3 weeks my fatigue has been horrible, and I've actually been having my hubby drive all the time he's been home and not working. I've also been using electric cars when available and bought a rollable walker. I have to say it's easier and less staining on my back than using a cane. 😥
Anyway, my dad's 90 minutes away and of all things we ran into a 35-40 minutes construction delay so we were in the car 3-4 hours round trip. I was so tired when we got home I don't even remember going to bed.😴
I didn't wake up until 9am again, second day. But the minute I tried to get out of bed... Fibromyalgia stiffness! I've struggled all day, even after a shower. We had to go to the grocery store and pet store and I'm exhausted. They've got to get my meds right or I'm going to literally collapse in public one day. Other than to doctor appointments I won't go shopping alone because I can't get through the stores and back to the car and then unload it all. My hubby is worried, I'm worried. I'm too tired and getting weaker every week. Keep me in your prayers!! 🙏🌼
