Venting about malaise

Dec 29, 2016 6:25 PM

Malaise is that all over achy feeling for those who are not familiar with the term. I include nausea, fatigue & dizziness in the definition. That is what I have today in spades. I've been chilling then sweating then chilling.i have been like this since a week before Christmas. I have always had this before but comes and goes with fairly long periods in between. Not sure what has this constantly stirred up.
I am complaining because I am tired of sleeping and not doing anything. My bed is uncomfortable. All my joints hurt. I don't know where to put my topical pain relief cause everything hurts. I have just settled on a pill for pain. I don't even feel well enough to continue this entry. Thaks for listening.

(((( gentle hugs )))) I call that "hitting that proverbial brick wall." it usually hits when I have gone above and beyond what I should be pushing my body to do. Running on adrenaline until there's nothing left to give and I crash.

Wish I had answers. Know though that I care. ❤

I have been feeling this way for a couple of days and unfortunately have no answers. I just try to rest, move around because I get uncomfortable and then rest some more. I don't have an official diagnosis so I don't know why this happens. Try stretching a little so everything doesn't get too stiff.
