Yesterday wasn’t as extreme, indeed! I recall feeling very fatigued and dizzy, and having “random” upper spine pain (which may or may not have been contributing to my arm weakness). After three days of minimal usage, said arms are doing better. Last night I even had an online chat with a couple of friends. The first true conversation in a very long time. Another one of my “moments” that let me know treatment is doing something.
As I’ve noted here before, there seems to be some correlation between my arm numbness (top of the right one) and the presentation of a severe headache. The headache started late last night, but not in my head. My neck became very stiff and I didn’t get to sleep until hours after I’d originally lied down to do so. This morning the stiffness wasn’t as bad (we’re not talking arthritic or joint related stiffness, here) but later on today I began getting the tell-tale signs of the Lyme headache. Lortab and ibuprofen, as usual, and I’m okay now. On the day of my last post, before bed I spiked a fever of 99.2, but as for now, I have none yet, despite the symptom flare-up. Odd.
Oh…! And I’ve been coughing. It started on the day of my last post, that awful day. Things like this make me wonder where the Mycoplasma pneumoniae is…
