Allergic to Exercise

You can in fact be allergic to exercise. And if anyone asks, I have the allergy. So badly, that I will in fact go out of my way to not prove it. Check out this blog article Allergic to Exercise. I do wheeze from things like leaving the house and moving, so my allergy to exercise must indeed be strong. I would say it should be avoided just in case.

Things I am also allergic to:

1) annoying people

2) people

4) work

5) thinking too hard

6) leaving the house

And so I do endevour to avoid people, work, thinking and leaving the house... and when I win the lottery I will do so. Unfotunately, money is allergic to me.

You think I would get used to the routine...

Hormonal migraines are not a surprise... they are a guaranteed trigger. The worst by far. It is just a matter of when they begin and how long they last... or I suppose I should say 'it', because it is honestly just one big migraine. You have to juggle that fine line of medications in order to get through the work week, without rebounding or getting too ill. Thankfully with the Lyrica decreasing the daily migraines, I do not end up with a two week migraine hell from the hormonal trigger. In fact, I do not really get the intense migraines the week prior, as I usually do. I do get acute migraines during though, and with the usual bad PMS, I feel very ill from them.

And they are acute migraines, and not easy to treat. They are also very sudden, no pre-headache warning.... and my aura is not a warning since it goes haywire. The only real warning is a case of heavy fatigue Friday morning, but that just gave me one big case of the stupids for the first few hours of the day (thank god for my decreased hours at work, since this is when I would have been late, without knowing how I ended up late) And the pain is insanely sharp. It is very specific, intense, but then radiates outward, even down my face, jaw or neck. And with the Axert taking twenty minutes or more to do anything, if anything, the sudden attacks mean immediate treatment with a T3 or OTC meds, just to get to the point of the Axert working. However, on Thursday and Friday I discovered that the Axert works very well, when not used frequently, it just does not work for very long. It does not have the duration of some other Triptans, and thus does not really abort the migraines, but rather delay it a bit. Overall I 'managed' it fairly well, but it got ahead of me a few times. And with a unending streak of migraines like this, there is not much you can do, in fact you have to push yourself through any pain that is not acute so you are not over using any medication.

And so not fun when you cannot use anti-inflammatories. Sure wish my stomach would heal enough for just a little Advil or something. Naturally PMS is a moody time, but when you add acute migraines into the mix... makes me temperamental, even volatile... mostly bouts of irrational anger (which thankfully I do not voice) and bouts of heightened energy (which other than making me extremely chatty and spontaneous are not too bad). But always emotionally unpredictable, thankfully since I am not really emotionally emotive this is not a hardship to anyone else, but it does make me feel very off center.

Huh, something I did not want to know...

Here are the symtpoms of Lyme Disease symptoms... you might note some very familiar neurological symtpoms associated with migraines and well the whole list looks like FMS. I had always assumed that the one benifit of living in Canada, and freezing my butt off for half the year, is that the cold killed all the nasty bugs and it was not an enviroment for certain bugs (killer bees for one... they freak me out... and lyme carrying ticks for another. Then I read this article that a dog had ticks (what? Ticks on a dog... no way) but this ticks tested positive for Lyme disease, even in the area I live in. Then comes this article in the Edmonton Journal about a protest for misdiagnosis of Lyme disease... such that there are more people with it and it is not being diagnosed properly.

I had long since crossed off Lyme disease for a possible over all reason for all my symptoms, all my individual diagnosis. I wonder about Lupus and such... more so because I seem to be getting works and FMS is said not to be progressive. And now this Lyme disease pops up as an issue and I don't even want to speculate about it... cause apparently harder to treat if you have had awhile. And because there is an actual treatment, too much to hope for to have a condition that could be actually treated... to not have the neurological problems and muslce issues. How I wish there was such a treatment for FMS. Anyway, I thought it was importmant to bring up as a Canadian. In the states they rule out Lyme disease quite well and diagnosis it very well, but if we are not doing the same, and you have almost all the symtpoms on that list, well it would be worth asking your doctor to look into it. I might even bringing it up myself, to see if I ever was... but not sure they do not have the files from back in the day.

I would love to just redirect you to the new site...

But sadly the redirect function doesn't function. I will continue to persist hitting it and see if it will eventually do something. Or s...
