Ive had a good amount of energy for quite a while now, a few years. But for a few days I have felt cold and tired. I push to keep myself doing what I usually do, workout at the gym, visit my horse at the barn, clean the bird fountain, errands, dinner with friends.
Today the extreme fatigue level started to frighten me. Zero appetite. Today I could not do anything. Fever, joint pain, extreme fatigue and very cold. I put on sweat pants, a sweater and slept under 3 blankets. The fever broke at 3pm.
Last night we had dinnner with friends, and I ate a burger and the bun. I rarely do this, since I stick to fish and chicken and vegetables. The sweats came on at bedtime, by 11pm, fever, achey wrists. Thank heaven no teeth chattering. I woke up at 7am, fortunately, I was not scheduled to work today. I went back to bed at 10am and slept until 3:30.
I’ve been having more joint pain lately that I’ve been ignoring. It’s time to get some labs run. It’s time to see what’s going on.
I know the anti-inflammatory diet works. But cheetos and quesadillas start calling my name and I fall off the anti-inflammatory diet. Today for the 1st time in years I downloaded the IF factor app that I lived by for years. It is time to follow the diet strictly again. The more positive the food ranks on the list the less inflammation it causes. Negative ranked foods inflame me. I do not want to relapse, ever. I never want to be on high steroids and methotrexate again.
I will keep you all posted.
Stay healthy my friends,
I acquired AOSD in 2008. I have suffered so terribly and have found ways to help me regain my life. This my personal journal of this mystery illness to diagnosis. I hope that I can help others with my experience and information.
