I’m having terrible luck these days.
I feel like I’ve been getting sicker and sicker with my Crohn’s disease over the last few weeks. Then last week I had flu like symptoms that hung on until Saturday or so and then as if that wasn’t bad enough I woke up with a terrible migraine on Sunday.
My headache was so bad that I lay on the couch most of the day and evening and took far too many Tylenol. Late in the evening I tried putting a heating pad on my neck and shoulders and it helped a bit but not enough.
Finally Chris offered to massage my neck and shoulders so I sat on the floor in front of him while he kneaded my neck, shoulders and back. Every time he tried to massage with a bit of force it hurt really bad. I know he wasn’t massaging hard at all but it left my whole upper back and lower neck feeling bruised! In fact the area still has a tender bruised feeling and it’s more than 48 hours later!
Oh and I still have a headache! Not as bad as on Sunday, but it’s still there.
I wish all these aches, pains and symptoms would just go away. Even if they’d only disappear for a day I’d be happy.
