That's how I felt today. I don't know why it hit me so hard today, but probably because I spent a careful 45 minutes yesterday doing a few outdoor things. Very low key. But last night, had two episodes of burning, painful calves waking me up to go to the bathroom.
Then today, what I can only describe as an effort to stay alive. It's brainstem stuff, some of my readers know what I'm talking about. My heart jumped around, inconsistent...breathing seemed like something I had to keep after myself. Diaphragm seeming to do calisthenics in my lower chest. Swallowing muscles were lazy, not moving food down very well. Yes, the back of my head and neck hurt, but not agonizingly so. I laid down often and just felt like I was takin' up useful air someone else should be using!
My husband and I can see that the fusion surgery needs to be happening soon. I'm getting worse. But first, the Tethered Cord surgery.
Right now, the scalp on my head has burning, zinging pressure. Today, my feet were painful and yet numb somehow, and my palms were the same.
I am confident tomorrow will be better.
