Fatigue becoming unbearable, leg twitches are worrisome…MS?

I don’t know what to do about my fatigue! It is getting unbearable. I am so tired I can’t get anything done through the day. Today I was lucky to have gotten my shower. I’m drinking five to six cups of coffee a day, at least one can of mountain dew sometimes two cans, and it just isn’t helping either.

I’ve had this burning in my arms for three days now and today it was the worst. I can’t even lift my arms above my head without severe throbbing pain and burning sensations. I also have had tingling again in my toes and that is very worrisome to me. I also have had a lot of leg jerks today to which also has me worried.

I don’t know what to do anymore to ease my pain and fatigue. I just want some comfort. Right now it is so hard to even keep my eyes open I’m so damn tired. I have to post this though. I have to journal this because my memory is shit.

I can’t remember shit anymore. It’s getting very bad. I have a hard time remembering to turn oven burners off, where I set my coffee, what bills need to be paid, where I put my purse, etc.

I am going to bed very soon though because I just can’t go any longer.

I needed to vacuum today, didn’t get it done. Dishes need to be washed, didn’t get it done. I needed to dust the whole house, didn’t get done. I wanted to hang my dining room curtains up that I just bought a week ago, that didn’t get done.

You know my feet even hurt! WTF! The top of my feet hurt to the touch, the bones are so sore and I HAVE NO IDEA WHY! It hurts to walk. Crazy symptoms are appearing out of nowhere these last few months. What the hell is going on I think all day long. What could it be that they haven’t found now? I know it isn’t all fibromyalgia symptoms. Leg twitches and muscle spasms are not known to be a fibromyalgia ailment. I have been having leg muscle spasms, and they turn up in my arms, and even my back by the rib cage! My symptoms do however show up under MS when you start researching the illness.

I mean I am not worried about having MS. Worrying does no good. I just want them to figure things out so I can find some relief to what the heck is going on with me now. I hope this new neurologist is a good one and that she cares to really look into what these things could be. I have an uncle with MS so having it wouldn’t surprise me one bit. I’ll just have to find a way to live through it like I have with the nerve tumor in my back and the fibromyalgia I have been diagnosed with.

The leg twitches are driving me crazy! You know how embarrassing it is to be sitting on your couch with company over and all the sudden your leg just jerks? It is pretty damn embarrassing for me and worrisome…I am beginning to think I may have MS indeed. I just want them to find it, diagnose it, and give me medicine to help me if that is the case. I’ll have to figure out how to live with it like others who have it, it won’t be easy I am sure, but I am a survivor so dish it out I say. Thanks for reading along. I appreciate you all greatly and I wish you the best in your life, and I pray you and your families are healthy.

Well I’m off to sleep before I pass out on this keyboard. I’ll keep you posted when I can with what is going on in JustOrdinary’s world of total health hell! LOL

Until next time…

Be safe!

Heart problem? Waiting to hear…

I had an appointment with my doctor last week and now I have to go in for a sleep apnea test. I do that on the 28th of this month. I also had to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours since I told her I had been feeling a fluttering in my chest. I still feel the flutter. I actually just had some fluttering going on as I started this post.

She thinks my constant headaches could be stemming from a sleep problem. The headaches I have are constant and just hang around. Sometimes the headaches turn into migraines but I have them 5 out of 7 days a week at least if not everyday.

I thought the headaches were a sinus problem. I suggested that to her and she said it could be but she is leaning more towards a sleeping problem since I wake up with them and they hang around. She also said since I have fibromyalgia having a sleeping disorder might just be the problem.

I haven’t heard anything yet about the heart monitor but I should be hearing something this week sometime. I had to turn it in on Friday morning.

Actually let me call her and see if any results are in…

Well they are supposed to be calling me back so I just wait. I sure hope it comes back ok.

Today I am very tired. My body feels like a semi truck hit me. I also have a headache that is just lingering around. It is very annoying. The joys of fibromyalgia! Want to join the club? Ha

I am nervous about the sleep apnea test. The test itself doesn’t worry me. I don’t like the idea of being in a different place over night away from my family. I don’t sleep well at home some nights so how the hell am I going to be able to sleep in a strange place with people watching me!? I hope they let me bring along my laptop and some movies. I’ll be so bored if they don’t. I have to check in at 9pm but I don’t go to bed until midnight. That is three hours of down time I have to figure out what to fill it with. Oh well, I’ll get the test done and it will be out of the way. Then we’ll be able to move onto the next thing we need to do.

The next thing she wants to do is put a scope down my throat! OUCH! That doesn’t sound fun at all. She thinks I might have an absorption problem. I keep going anemic and I’m not bleeding at all so something is going on. She also thinks that might be the root cause of my hair loss. She thinks B12, iron, and ferritin all combined is causing my constant hair loss. She said you could fix one but without fixing the others my hair would continuing to fall out. So I have to have blood tests done next time I go in which will be within the next few weeks.

I am going to go now and rest. I’m so tired today. I hope I get enough energy to run the vacuum later! I’ll keep you posted on the heart situation. Wish me luck.

Until next time…

Be safe
