On Thursday I was feeling ok, so managed to do some housework, drive. A chair yoga class and make tea.
Although I had another restless night, I did feel ok on Fri am, managed some ironing, stacked the dishwasher, took my youngest to school, although legs ached on uphill bits. Then did a few emails and some stuff on computer that needed doing. Thought I better have a drink and some fruit and watch a bit of tv - rest a while. I did this for about an hour, but then came over all cold, and dizzy.
Took myself off to bed as my constant headache had got worse and I felt week and tried.
Ended up stopping there for rest of day, did manage an hour or so sleep. Dragged myself out of bed for school run, had to walk as did not feel safe to drive, ended up having takeaway for tea, second time this week, as no energy or inclination to cook.
Spent evening on sofa with headache and pain in my left arm, feels like I have a blood pressure monitor on squeezing my arm all the time.
Not sure what I should do? Is it best to try and keep going or rest when your body tells you to?
Am on treatment for depression, but different than depression tired. Beta blockers for headache, only been a week but not making any difference . Going to see eye specialist in 2 weeks as I have dropping eyelid, small pupil and reversed squint, which means I have blurred and double vision, but not constant.
Seen Neuro and waiting for brain and spine MRI to look for MS.
I have a husband and 2 school aged children, finding it hard to manage.
Any ideas, suggestions?
Sorry to moan on
