I’m going to do this periodically just to keep track of my symptoms for prosperity’s sake. (Yeah – prosperity’s sake. )
Pain: In torso from breastbone to hips – sunburn feeling. Firm pressure brings it some comfort. Brushing of my shirt against my skin hurts. On a scale from 1-10 (10 being severe pain), I think I’m at about a 3-4 (down from a 4-5 in May).
Nausea: none – YAY!
Tiredness: Scale from 1-10 where 1 is hyper and 10 is exhaustion. I’m at around a 7 on most days. I think this is GREAT because I used to be a 9.
Physical: I’m feeling stronger but still have a way to go. Some numbness and tingling when I have any type of jumping or impact exercise. I think I’m feeling pretty good, though I’m still pretty tired. When I’m tired I slur my speech and walk with a limp. I also have a hard time with transitions (sitting to standing, etc), so church can sometimes be difficult.
Mentally: I’m still worn out, but starting to retain information again. I’m doing several memory games online and keeping up with my friends, so all is getting better.
Other: woke up with the sniffles this morning, but it cleared up by the afternoon. Must be allergies or something like that. I’m always STARVING and I hate every minute of that. Thanks prednisone.
