((((Bab's)))), you guys are all such a blessing to me. I can't imagine trying to do this alone. I'm sorry you have this headache from your meds. Somtimes it seems like you have to wonder if the trade off is worth it. I know you have trouble sleeping so if the meds for RLS are helping I would imagine the headaches might be worth it. Geesh but one big happy pill would be great!

My friend came over to take some more stuff to the dump I tried to help her put a window air condition in the back of her truck. Needless to say it's still setting on my back porch! I just said man it ain't worth it! nono . I need that little guy as a visual aid sometimes. lol.

I think I need a nap. After all I've been up 5 hours. tongue I hope you are having a good day!

love ya back

Carol, I hope you got some rest. I was also going to tell you to not ever worry about posting too much - I think this is one of the few places where people really do understand that yes, all of these things can actually be going wrong with our bodies. I've also done the questioning myself thing. I've wondered if I am imagining symptoms or if the pain is really as bad as I think it is or if things are really as bad as I think they are. I think that's one reason I hesitate to go to the doc even when I'm flaring. I question how bad I really am and doubt myslef and I'm afraid I'll go in and they'll look at me like I'm crazy.

Speaking of headaches, I did actually make an appointment with my pcp regarding this cold and how it's settled into my sinuses. It continues to get worse and is causing a lot of pain and now I am running a fever, so I'm worried about a sinus infection, especially since we are supposed to leave for vacation on Thursday.

Babs brought up a good point about meds also causing headaches. Hang in there and I'm glad you didn't end up moving the air conditioner.

Thanks Hippi, I hope the doctor gives you some antibiotics or somthing so it doesn't ruin your trip.
I guess the thing about symptoms is like everyone says 1000 faces. Like today, I took some ham and cabbage out of the fridge and choped it up for the crock pot. by the time I was done my fingers tips were hurting so badly that I had to dunk them in my dish water. After 30 seconds or so the pain was gone. So here's the thing ok I know the pain in the finger tips can be a symptom. Than again maybe my finger tips were just plain cold! I'm mean after all the stuff was in the fridge. It's not the first time they got cold but now I have to take note of everything. It's enough to drive ya crazy. For me it's a short trip anyway. lol.

I sure hope you get to feeling better soon!
hugs

Try to use ice packs for the headaches. That is what I do it helps out a lot. I just got back from Disney and had one in the hotel and got bags from the front desk and made ice packs it helped before the meds kicked in.

Lupus since 2005, MCT since 2005 polymysoitis since 2005,Arthritis since2005 sjogren's syndrome since 2005, vertigo since 2006,migrains since 2006, diabetes since 2006, Depression since 2004. who would not be with all of this.
 
       I just try to make it threw every day as best I can.
        God please remember I am on the diet platter.
                  So many beads so little time.....
 
                   Have a great Lupie Day Denise

(((( Carol )))) I am another one that has headaches too (we are beginning to have a lot in common) scool Usually when I wake up with a headache it's not a good thing nono and doesn't go away so quietly. Since I am on NSAIDS I cannot take anything for them so I use a cold compress and that helps a little, mainly a dark quiet room and sleep! I hope you are feeling better! You are in my prayers.

Hi Stacie, Maybe we should get together and compare notes? Except I was reading all the things that you have DX's with and no offense but redface I don't want em! LOL! My Goodness you have your hands full.

So that's the second time ice was mentioned. I think maybe baby peas would be better. Just the thought of putting my hands in ice makes my fingers hurt. Boy this could make for a really long hot summer confused

 

love ya


God Bless
