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 …

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 …
