  1. Today I could not get out of bed. I felt bad because my wonderful husband ran all my errands. I just couldnt get up and showered. My legs have been crampy all day I have been really swollen again. I dont know how much more I can take. When I went out for medicataion today I had to pull the car over twice because my eyes were having muscle spasims first it was just the left eye then both eyes. I had to stop and hold my face for a while. The sweating is getting bad too I feel so embarrased when I go places cause here comes this huge woman that is sweating all over the place. I feel really hot but my feet are cold (sounds weird) I mean how can you feel like your skin is burning and be cold right. I feel like my head is going to pop. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
  2. Ok so my doctor wanted me to keep track of my day to day progress. So I thought I would start with how I felt last night. I was having some really bad leg cramps and a fever, I am not quite sure if it is from the lower dose of steriods, but I started my period last night and I always get pain in my legs and calfs when I menstrate. I was really happy it was on time this month since I had my baby I have been pretty regular I was a week late last month but I cycled 28 days later with last night being the first night. So this is a good sign that my menses are normalizing. I havent done much housework today I hope that my husband doesnt get to mad, but I have been swollen everywhere and in quite a bit of pain in my legs and calfs again. I am down to 10MG steriods I have been sweeting like crazy and feel a little crampy in my tummy. I think I will take some tramadol, shower and go to bed early. I wish I could taper off the steriods sooner but I guess I will have to wait for another 10 days or so. I havent had much of an appetite but I think I will try and eat something for dinner. I have just been so swollen in my neck area. Between the moon face and buffalo hump I feel a lot of strain in my spine and neck and I feel so constricted. My Hands and feet are huge I had to take my watch up a notch. The Endo just increased my synthroid dose from 125 to 175. I hope it kicks in soon!
