Today is my first day for the journal. I have decided to keep it more for my Doctor visits than weight loss reasons although I am sure that will be a benifit as well.
I've had a bit of weight gain recntly and my Doc thinks it may be related to a problem they have just discovered with my kidneys.
I went to bed last night at 10:00 and was up at 1:30, 2:25; and 3:30. Pretty much a typical night. We get up at 4:30 every morning.. I had problems with my arms , hands going to sleep. ( carpal tunnel and nerve damage due to the Lupus ) Upon rising my joints were stiff and my back hurt..(typical) Also had a slight headache. ( occurring more frequently ) have been having more frequent chest pains as well. My left hip and right knee hurt a little more than usual.
i fed our dogs, cats, birds, and horses with little difficulty, took out the trash and did my exercises. the bike was a bit of a chaallenge and now my knee hurts more. I want to take a Vicodin but I will try to ignore it for a while. It is 12:00 now and the headache has subsided. All for now maybe more at the end of the day. as I said this is new.we'll see haw it goes.
