I didn't realise how long though!
Since my last post, I've run the gamut of tests, drugs and doctors, yet still have no answers for the pain and fatigue. I finally decided to stop the medication (Lyrica) when it was not helping the pain but was causing mood swings and weight gain. I've not been able to exercise much, even short walks (3k or so) leave me exhausted and pretty much useless for the next day because of the pain. Running isn't even in the realm of possibility right now. The pain and physical stress is affecting other health issues I have and it's like an endless circle of trying to manage symptoms and side effects.
I did see a chiropractor today and I had some minor relief from the pain immediately after the treatment, but now I feel like a ton of bricks has fallen on me - which he told me to expect due to all the soft tissue work he did. I'm hoping that regular treatments will give me some relief until the cause can be found.
Right now, I'm just taking one day at a time and trying to get through as best I can.
I am reading all your blogs though I am not commenting much.
I do have a post about an upcoming show I'm going to that I'm looking forward to writing, probably sometime over the weekend.
On a good note - this weekend we will finally have Spring like weather.
