Ugh. I’ve been feeling pretty bad physically for a while now, and for some reason, I’ve been ignoring it. Only recently realized that it may not be from recent changes in medication–but dehydration getting worse. Come to think of it, I haven’t been keeping up with the daily 2+ liters of water with around 8 grams of salt. There’s just so much to keep up with, and now it’s even more difficult to drink because my stomach especially hates water when it’s nauseas.

Along with constant mild nausea (that gets worse when I move, shift to a more upright position, or talk), I’ve been experiencing more muscle aches, dizziness/vertigo, and especially tremors and weakness. Honestly, I’m having a pretty hard time walking now due to how weak and wobbly my legs are. I’m also having a harder time than usual doing anything that requires fine motor control because my hand just kind of jumps around everywhere. These things make it even harder to get food without feeling horrible or spilling things everywhere. But I have a really hard time asking for help, especially when everyone else in the house is busy.

Ugh. Why does getting a PICC line have to be so complicated...?

I often get mechanical allodynia on patches of skin (though it can be all of my skin if it’s lightly rub repeatedly). But now, it’s going down the middle of my spine. Any movement of my torso or movement of my shirt against my back causes a surprising amount of pain. Time to just sit completely still I guess.

I also can feel a bump going along my spine near the painful area. I’ve had a pretty big cyst on my spine before, but this is much smaller and feels more like it’s on the surface of my skin. It kind of feels like a mosquito bite, so yeah, probably unrelated.
