The past few days I have slept nearly non-stop around the clock - waking up only to complete the most crucial life functions...like eating.
My body hurts in ways that make no sense. My elbows hurt. My legs ache. I feel like I completed an Ironman and then lost a few rounds in the boxing ring.
Walking from the kitchen to the bed I am short of breath and dizzy. I hit the mattress and find myself asleep for 6-8-12 hours at a time. I wake soaked in my sheets from night sweats.
The sun outside hurts my eyes and I hide in the darkest room in the house to avoid the light.
All of the gains I made in the past few months have disappeared. Where did they go??
No point in calling the doctors; they've heard it all before and have anything new to offer. No point in telling my friends, who wants to hear this crap? My family are kind, but worried...I don't want to trouble them either.
Is this a flare?
Extended jet lag?
I can't find a single diagnosis that matches my symptoms and it is frustrating as hell.
Thanks for listening...I'm going back to sleep now.
