When I got out of bed this morning I almost fell over, my foot hurt so bad. After an hour or so, I become more agile, and able to walk with only a slight limp. But there will be no powerwalking, no elliptical trainer, no weight lifting (can’t hold the weights with my witch-claw), no aerobics, pilates, or yoga, becuase as it turns out, pretty much anything fitness related does require use of the pinky toe either for traction or balance.
I’m a little dejected about the Not Knowing.
I can straighten my hand today. with pain, but this is the first time in weeks and weeks that I’ve been able to open it fully at all.
My hand and foot are paralyzed again. There is some noise about a type of Bells Palsy that causes pain and limited movement in the hands and feet. My dad still thinks I have an Inflammation problem so I’m going to read Inflammation Nation again, since trying that option is free, and finding out whether I have neurological damage is definitely on the far end of the scale from free.
Whatever the cause, I’m sick of being sick. And I wish I were stupid at least 3 x a week. I mean, I could just be taking painkillers and drinking red wine every night. We could be happily eating whatever is on sale at the grocery store and going to all the movies we want.
Except I can’t stop myself from turning that package over and reading the damn label. And I can’t stop myself from looking for the reason for the pain.
OK I’m charting this pain in my hand and foot now. This is like, 3 weeks or so of pain in my left hand where I can’t straighten it.
