Today I decided to help my sister out with cleaning her kitchen up.
I did two dishwasher full of dishes and a whole drainboard of pots. I washed windows, swept, dusted, wiped down counters, frig, and microwave, and swept out windows.
 
I then helped my BIL put spark plug cables on his car. eyes
 
My left arm became so inflammed thanks to all of the work. smhair   (I'm a lefty.)
From my neck down to my finger tips is swollen and killing me!
I rubbed bengay on it, iced it, and had my sister give it a gentle massage.
 
I had a odd feeling going on the skin surface though. It almost felt numb but the muscles and joints throbbed. shocked
 
Have any of you ever had your arm feel like that?

Yeah, it's how tired muscles feel when they haven't been given a workout in a while...dunno' if it's old age or my Lupus, but it sounds like my right arm after todays marathon gardening event.

We will sleep well tonight!!!

Joy,

Sounds like you really over did it yesterday. It's so hard for us to remember not to overdo it, especially if we're having a half way decent day.

Sounds as if your muscles were just overworked. Trynto rest a bit today. Let your body recooperate and start to feel better.

Wishing you the best today. (((((Hug))))) lots of rest and fluids Joy.

Hugs,
Barbara

It feels better today, but still achy and odd numb feeling.

I'm babying it today and hoping the rest of the ache goes away.

Hi Joy,
 
     I agree with everything that was said.   I get to feeling good and then take on a ton of chores.  By evening and into the next day, I end of paying for it.  Sometimes my skin even hurts.  And you are right, being gentle on yourself and getting good rest works.

Well, with all of my overdoing it this past week and the stress of my kitty getting ill and needing emergency surgery for infected gall bladder I've set myself up for a major flare.
I've got a low grade fever, rib pains, achy, fatigued, and very hot hands.

I always seem to get sicker on the weekends. :(
