So tonight it's the swelling

Aug 06, 2016 10:58 PM

Still adjusting to this lupron and what not so I thought I had a good plan on how to combat the side effects. However I've not been doing to well last few days. Tonight my ankles look like plump sausages and the restlessness is trying to hold on.. I've taken the ambian and it seems to be slow acting tonight. I can't seem to get comfortable in any way. Neither temperature nor body position. Just shaking my head.

Newfibrogirl unfortunately the only thing you can do is try to meditate and do some deep breathing exercising. This will help you to relax. Turn on some music that makes you relax and just be still for a bit. After that if you feel up to it, watch a movie. Maybe one you've seen that's lighthearted and fun that you can distract yourself with. I know it's easier said than done. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make it better for you. {{{{Hugs}}}}💕😍

Newfibrogirl, keep your feet elevated to help with the swelling. I hope you will spin feel better and won't suffer so much from the treatment. Hugs love & prayers you have a better night tonight! 🙂💕🙏🌸
