Chronic Pain Thursday ~ Zebra Chat ~ #ChronicPain 1/5/23

I don’t even know where to start. This new year hasn’t been the best. I sure hope it will get better soon.

It started last Thursday (12/29/22), around 3:00am. I woke up and needed to use the restroom. As soon as I sat up, my head was spinning like it has never spun before. I was ridiculously dizzy and then immediately nauseous. Got sick. And came back to bed. Happened again about an hour later.

Since then, I have been battling this crazy vertigo, that came out of nowhere. I did a little googling and rested as much as I could, while drinking plenty of water. It still hasn’t gone away. Chatted with the doctor yesterday and the recommended Meclizine 1/2 tablet, twice a day and still… get plenty of fluids. So I am 3 half pills in and not too much of a difference. Praying this clears up soon.

While I’m dealing with the dizziness, I have also been having horrible pains in my left leg/hip. Can hardly bend my leg, without excruciating pain. This has been going on for maybe 2 weeks. Nothing seems to help, other than staying in bed. And that just drives me crazy. I have things to do around the house, at the very least.

So my sister-in-law told my hubby about this lotion, that may help. So before I even knew about it, he had ordered a lotion and a gel.

The lotion arrived Tuesday and the gel on Wednesday. The first night, I tried the lotion on my legs, left hip and middle upper back ( another problem area ). The lotion has magnesium in it, which is to help relax and calm your muscles. I have restless legs and they can really drive me insane, when I’m trying to get to sleep. My legs did feel a bit calmer at night, and my left hip wasn’t AS excruciating as it had been. So I lathered up again this morning. Legs, in general, are feeling good but my hip is back to miserable. I’ll see if the gel does anything differently. I will tell you. This lotion smells just like vanilla cake batter. It smells quite nice.

The reviews for the lotion were pretty great. Someone, who also suffers from Fibromyalgia & Ehlers-Danlos (III – Hyermobility), recommended it, so I am down to try anything…if it will help.

Fingers crossed and I’ll keep you updated!
