Most that read this probably think I am an old woman, but I am not. I am only 51 years of age and I feel 101 whatever that feels like, it must be how I feel.
I think my body is attacking itself. I can barely pull the covers over myself at night and there are times when I have to ask my husband to help me do it. When I finally get settled, I go back to sleep, but then maybe I have to roll over and that is done with lots of groaning and lots of pain.
Getting up in the morning is no piece of cake either. I log roll as it is called to the side of the bed, push myself to a sitting position and then pray that today, when I put my feet on the floor, I won't feel the horrible excruciating pain I feel. But today is no different than any other of late. My left food feels like it is full of pins and air bubbles.
Standing is one thing, but then I must will myself to walk & I can barely move. Sitting on the toilet, standing up, bending any type of movement for the first hour or so I am awake takes strict concentration on my part to keep moving.
My left elbow burns, my left leg, hip & back and yet my doctors can't seem to find anything wrong with me.
If you know what this could be, let me know!
