JayCS’s Fibro Blog

My daily symptom & trigger hunt, preventing & alleviating, can be generalized.

2021-11-28, Sunday - got a lot done, bit wary of tomorrow’s jab (if they have enough vaxx), try to sleep well…

(v3: 15:30 Nuff pity party, now uptempo uplifting dance stuff!)
(v2: 15:10 pretty tearful/crying today, partly procrastinating work (but self-physio & getting on slowly) listening to good old songs or new ones about faith, I guess it’s cos of the jab. I’m excited & praps “afraid” knowing even the first may be f***ing tough on my system, I may be back to square one for quite a time - but glad to be proved wrong.)
(v1: 13:35 still good, so no probly NADH today & lots of stretching while working)

SELF-PHYSIO (click for details): 6h05! ✅ By concentrating on knees under feet I'm doing a lot to get my loins more flexible, right is pretty OK, left still has a way to go. But neglecting my neck led to sleep distractions from neck pain, esp. to the left, so gotta care for that again. Also twist-turning while leaning on the sofa I've always been doing to the right, stretching the left nape, so I should do more to the left, stretching the right. BTW this is really hard work, as I am countering the stretching pain while stretch-sitting until it gets too much, and also when unravelling to get up.

Reasons to be cheerful #146 Loads of work, loads of self-physio!

Abbreviations & explanations

Entries start with night meds & sleep, before triggers/symptoms & treatments, because the “night before” is vital. So Fri-day starts with Thursday night, the night before Friday.

Pain "7" = crying (/out) point; my 1 is others 2-3, and due to pacing/treatments

My wife says my 7 is other people’s 12. 1 is probably 2-3. Due to pacing, keeping work down to 25% (12h/wk) and all my treatments (acupressure, GABA) and physio self-treatments I manage to keep getting my pains & Ache down quickly. 3 usually means the Ache, not pains; these I address individually, often automatically and on the fly now, e.g. twist-stretching everything or something specific after getting up.

TIME DATA, e.g. ' = mins, h = hours, 18:10:40', date YYYY-MM-DD

’ = mins = minutes, ‘’ = secs = seconds, h is hours as time length, 3h is 3 hours long, 3:00 is 3am, 15:00 is 3pm. 18:10:40’ means 40 minutes, starting at 18:10, = 10 minutes past 6pm up to 10 to 7pm. The date is the logical digital standard: YYYY-MM-DD.

SLEEP: slp, w, lbu/LBU, RLS, p, i

slp = sleep; reasons for getting up: w = (a)wake, lbu/LBU: lower back unrest (‘RLS’?), p: pee, p2: pain 2 of 7 before peeing, i: ideas.

ACTIVITIES: TT, e.g. "5:1"

TT = table tennis, 5:1 = score, usually showing how well I’m feeling: energy, relaxedness & alertness if the first number is much higher than the second.

SUPPS: supplements (as opposed to herbs & meds). Fx: Effects. Sfx: Side effects.

SELF-TREATMENTS (about everything else...)

The self-treatments listed are only things that I’m spotlighting & rewarding myself for at the mo by counting them; much of what I do at night is self-treatment to get back to sleep or alleviate (1-2h/d), certain regular movements at daytime, like twist-stretching (30’), writing this blog is self-treatment (30’-60’/d), and the further fibro-work is an indirect form.
Self treatments are usually preventative or always have the same positive effect (e.g. cold showering improves Ache and sleep) - at least I do them for that - and I use “:arrow_forward:” to show what I’m doing to alleviate something and mark it off in the details “:white_check_mark:/:x:” whether it works well enough for a time or doesn’t’, e.g. Ache :arrow_forward: cold fast shower “:white_check_mark:
fw = fibro-work, meaning reading and writing this blog, the reference base, on 4 fibro-forums and researching fibro-stuff on the web.
AuTr = Autogenic Training (usually to actively get - back - to sleep, so counting it as sleep and AuTr…),
FAT Flash/fast autogenic training: immediate image of dreamy floating in space or liquid from jaw to legs.
cold/FCS = Flash Cold Shower (20’’-60’’) , I count it as 10’ tho. At night with ear plugs & all lights off.
breath-hold/WHM-B-H = Wim Hof Method Breath-Holding,
Neck 1 is stretching top right to bottom left, vice versa & sky/ground, neck “1+” is stretching far further diagonally downwards, neck 2 is pressing my head against my hand “without moving”, left right and front.
loins = loins/groin = stretching the ligaments there.
ex = exercises
HWB = Hot water bottle,
RR = bp = blood pressure (Riva Rocci), plus pulse. Used to be normal, plus sometimes white coat syndrome, went up since fibro, seems to have gone down again enough so I’ve not only stopped lercanidipine, but also candesartan and am checking RR regularly.
:new: “V” for loins = lie on back, legs up and let legs fall to sides;
:new: twist-stretching more for the loins

Abbreviations & explanations

Entries start with night meds & sleep, before triggers/symptoms & treatments, because the “night before” is vital. So Fri-day starts with Thursday night, the night before Friday.

Pain "7" = crying (/out) point; my 1 is others 2-3, and due to pacing/treatments

My wife says my 7 is other people’s 12. 1 is probably 2-3. Due to pacing, keeping work down to 25% (12h/wk) and all my treatments (acupressure, GABA) and physio self-treatments I manage to keep getting my pains & Ache down quickly. 3 usually means the Ache, not pains; these I address individually, often automatically and on the fly now, e.g. twist-stretching everything or something specific after getting up.

TIME DATA, e.g. ' = mins, h = hours, 18:10:40', date YYYY-MM-DD

’ = mins = minutes, ‘’ = secs = seconds, h is hours as time length, 3h is 3 hours long, 3:00 is 3am, 15:00 is 3pm. 18:10:40’ means 40 minutes, starting at 18:10, = 10 minutes past 6pm up to 10 to 7pm. The date is the logical digital standard: YYYY-MM-DD.

SLEEP: slp, w, lbu/LBU, RLS, p, i

slp = sleep; reasons for getting up: w = (a)wake, lbu/LBU: lower back unrest (‘RLS’?), p: pee, p2: pain 2 of 7 before peeing, i: ideas.

ACTIVITIES: TT, e.g. "5:1"

TT = table tennis, 5:1 = score, usually showing how well I’m feeling: energy, relaxedness & alertness if the first number is much higher than the second.

SUPPS: supplements (as opposed to herbs & meds). Fx: Effects. Sfx: Side effects.

SELF-TREATMENTS (about everything else...)

The self-treatments listed are only things that I’m spotlighting & rewarding myself for at the mo by counting them; much of what I do at night is self-treatment to get back to sleep or alleviate (1-2h/d), certain regular movements at daytime, like twist-stretching (30’), writing this blog is self-treatment (30’-60’/d), and the further fibro-work is an indirect form.
Self treatments are usually preventative or always have the same positive effect (e.g. cold showering improves Ache and sleep) - at least I do them for that - and I use “:arrow_forward:” to show what I’m doing to alleviate something and mark it off in the details “:white_check_mark:/:x:” whether it works well enough for a time or doesn’t’, e.g. Ache :arrow_forward: cold fast shower “:white_check_mark:
fw = fibro-work, meaning reading and writing this blog, the reference base, on 4 fibro-forums and researching fibro-stuff on the web.
AuTr = Autogenic Training (usually to actively get - back - to sleep, so counting it as sleep and AuTr…),
FAT Flash/fast autogenic training: immediate image of dreamy floating in space or liquid from jaw to legs.
cold/FCS = Flash Cold Shower (20’’-60’’) , I count it as 10’ tho. At night with ear plugs & all lights off.
breath-hold/WHM-B-H = Wim Hof Method Breath-Holding,
Neck 1 is stretching top right to bottom left, vice versa & sky/ground, neck “1+” is stretching far further diagonally downwards, neck 2 is pressing my head against my hand “without moving”, left right and front.
loins = loins/groin = stretching the ligaments there.
ex = exercises
HWB = Hot water bottle,
RR = bp = blood pressure (Riva Rocci), plus pulse. Used to be normal, plus sometimes white coat syndrome, went up since fibro, seems to have gone down again enough so I’ve not only stopped lercanidipine, but also candesartan and am checking RR regularly.
:new: “V” for loins = lie on back, legs up and let legs fall to sides;
:new: twist-stretching more for the loins

My daily symptom & trigger hunt, preventing & alleviating, can be generalized.

2021-11-30, Tuesday - Pfizer#1… still fairly OK, but taking it very slow…

(Whoops, I’d skipped a day, sry…)
(v2: 14:00 running nose and sneezing: not from the 40’ cold this morning as I was doing stretching exercises all the time, not standing still. As I said quite a few months ago “I don’t care” what people think. [Actually the guy behind me started doing the same.] 16:40 all better, just tired)
(v1: jab sfx: 8:55 1st Pfizer jab, 9:30 bit itchy (backside: from the cold; arm from jab), 10:00 tip of tongue feels burnt, but itchiness 0, head, slight nausea, so not moving too much (but gotta keep circulation up), 10:20 burning a bit? 10:40 36,5°C - for me that’s temperature already, I usually have 35,5°C, dull, spinning head. But all very slight…)

Lessons in self-care #140 Slooow.
Reasons to be cheerful #149 Relief not to have to go to work… :hear_no_evil: :see_no_evil: :speak_no_evil:

Abbreviations & explanations

Entries start with night meds & sleep, before triggers/symptoms & treatments, because the “night before” is vital. So Fri-day starts with Thursday night, the night before Friday.

Pain "7" = crying (/out) point; my 1 is others 2-3, and due to pacing/treatments

My wife says my 7 is other people’s 12. 1 is probably 2-3. Due to pacing, keeping work down to 25% (12h/wk) and all my treatments (acupressure, GABA) and physio self-treatments I manage to keep getting my pains & Ache down quickly. 3 usually means the Ache, not pains; these I address individually, often automatically and on the fly now, e.g. twist-stretching everything or something specific after getting up.

TIME DATA, e.g. ' = mins, h = hours, 18:10:40', date YYYY-MM-DD

’ = mins = minutes, ‘’ = secs = seconds, h is hours as time length, 3h is 3 hours long, 3:00 is 3am, 15:00 is 3pm. 18:10:40’ means 40 minutes, starting at 18:10, = 10 minutes past 6pm up to 10 to 7pm. The date is the logical digital standard: YYYY-MM-DD.

SLEEP: slp, w, lbu/LBU, RLS, p, i

slp = sleep; reasons for getting up: w = (a)wake, lbu/LBU: lower back unrest (‘RLS’?), p: pee, p2: pain 2 of 7 before peeing, i: ideas.

ACTIVITIES: TT, e.g. "5:1"

TT = table tennis, 5:1 = score, usually showing how well I’m feeling: energy, relaxedness & alertness if the first number is much higher than the second.

SUPPS: supplements (as opposed to herbs & meds). Fx: Effects. Sfx: Side effects.

SELF-TREATMENTS (about everything else...)

The self-treatments listed are only things that I’m spotlighting & rewarding myself for at the mo by counting them; much of what I do at night is self-treatment to get back to sleep or alleviate (1-2h/d), certain regular movements at daytime, like twist-stretching (30’), writing this blog is self-treatment (30’-60’/d), and the further fibro-work is an indirect form.
Self treatments are usually preventative or always have the same positive effect (e.g. cold showering improves Ache and sleep) - at least I do them for that - and I use “:arrow_forward:” to show what I’m doing to alleviate something and mark it off in the details “:white_check_mark:/:x:” whether it works well enough for a time or doesn’t’, e.g. Ache :arrow_forward: cold fast shower “:white_check_mark:
fw = fibro-work, meaning reading and writing this blog, the reference base, on 4 fibro-forums and researching fibro-stuff on the web.
AuTr = Autogenic Training (usually to actively get - back - to sleep, so counting it as sleep and AuTr…),
FAT Flash/fast autogenic training: immediate image of dreamy floating in space or liquid from jaw to legs.
cold/FCS = Flash Cold Shower (20’’-60’’) , I count it as 10’ tho. At night with ear plugs & all lights off.
breath-hold/WHM-B-H = Wim Hof Method Breath-Holding,
Neck 1 is stretching top right to bottom left, vice versa & sky/ground, neck “1+” is stretching far further diagonally downwards, neck 2 is pressing my head against my hand “without moving”, left right and front.
loins = loins/groin = stretching the ligaments there.
ex = exercises
HWB = Hot water bottle,
RR = bp = blood pressure (Riva Rocci), plus pulse. Used to be normal, plus sometimes white coat syndrome, went up since fibro, seems to have gone down again enough so I’ve not only stopped lercanidipine, but also candesartan and am checking RR regularly.
:new: “V” for loins = lie on back, legs up and let legs fall to sides;

Lessons in self-care #142
Reasons to be cheerful #151

Abbreviations & explanations

Entries start with night meds & sleep, before triggers/symptoms & treatments, because the “night before” is vital. So Fri-day starts with Thursday night, the night before Friday.

Pain "7" = crying (/out) point; my 1 is others 2-3, and due to pacing/treatments

My wife says my 7 is other people’s 12. 1 is probably 2-3. Due to pacing, keeping work down to 25% (12h/wk) and all my treatments (acupressure, GABA) and physio self-treatments I manage to keep getting my pains & Ache down quickly. 3 usually means the Ache, not pains; these I address individually, often automatically and on the fly now, e.g. twist-stretching everything or something specific after getting up.

TIME DATA, e.g. ' = mins, h = hours, 18:10:40', date YYYY-MM-DD

’ = mins = minutes, ‘’ = secs = seconds, h is hours as time length, 3h is 3 hours long, 3:00 is 3am, 15:00 is 3pm. 18:10:40’ means 40 minutes, starting at 18:10, = 10 minutes past 6pm up to 10 to 7pm. The date is the logical digital standard: YYYY-MM-DD.

SLEEP: slp, w, lbu/LBU, RLS, p, i

slp = sleep; reasons for getting up: w = (a)wake, lbu/LBU: lower back unrest (‘RLS’?), p: pee, p2: pain 2 of 7 before peeing, i: ideas.

ACTIVITIES: TT, e.g. "5:1"

TT = table tennis, 5:1 = score, usually showing how well I’m feeling: energy, relaxedness & alertness if the first number is much higher than the second.

SUPPS: supplements (as opposed to herbs & meds). Fx: Effects. Sfx: Side effects.

SELF-TREATMENTS (about everything else...)

The self-treatments listed are only things that I’m spotlighting & rewarding myself for at the mo by counting them; much of what I do at night is self-treatment to get back to sleep or alleviate (1-2h/d), certain regular movements at daytime, like twist-stretching (30’), writing this blog is self-treatment (30’-60’/d), and the further fibro-work is an indirect form.
Self treatments are usually preventative or always have the same positive effect (e.g. cold showering improves Ache and sleep) - at least I do them for that - and I use “:arrow_forward:” to show what I’m doing to alleviate something and mark it off in the details “:white_check_mark:/:x:” whether it works well enough for a time or doesn’t’, e.g. Ache :arrow_forward: cold fast shower “:white_check_mark:
fw = fibro-work, meaning reading and writing this blog, the reference base, on 4 fibro-forums and researching fibro-stuff on the web.
AuTr = Autogenic Training (usually to actively get - back - to sleep, so counting it as sleep and AuTr…),
FAT Flash/fast autogenic training: immediate image of dreamy floating in space or liquid from jaw to legs.
cold/FCS = Flash Cold Shower (20’’-60’’) , I count it as 10’ tho. At night with ear plugs & all lights off.
breath-hold/WHM-B-H = Wim Hof Method Breath-Holding,
Neck 1 is stretching top right to bottom left, vice versa & sky/ground, neck “1+” is stretching far further diagonally downwards, neck 2 is pressing my head against my hand “without moving”, left right and front.
loins = loins/groin = stretching the ligaments there.
ex = exercises
HWB = Hot water bottle,
RR = bp = blood pressure (Riva Rocci), plus pulse. Used to be normal, plus sometimes white coat syndrome, went up since fibro, seems to have gone down again enough so I’ve not only stopped lercanidipine, but also candesartan and am checking RR regularly.
:new: “V” for loins = lie on back, legs up and let legs fall to sides;
:new: twist-stretching more for the loins

2021-12-03, Friday - jab has severely worsened FM again

(15:30 acupressure was a challenge.)
(v3: 12:20 nauseous again, altho resting; burnt tongue feeling)
(v2: 11:15 Drat, wife was right, I’m smashed now, traffic & steps dangerous)
(v1: 08:25 - night OK, getting up not, but trying to go to work a bit, wife sez I shdnt, as I have white-grey lips…)

Triggers & resulting Symptoms

SLEEP (click for details): 8h36, up 6x (1h24) ➔ Feeling 90% well, Ache 1 of 7 ✅, but 80%/2 ❌ getting up

No fw! lbu: belly tensing? No half-sitting on sofa!

Sum: 1h50+8h10-(3+3+10+50+3+15=)84’= 10h-1h24=8h36, up 6x (1h24)

ACTIVITIES (aiming for 40% of pre-fibro)ACHE: right upper back hurting, feverish ➔ 70%/2, let’s see if the supps hit in, it & up. 11:15 Nope, the wakers didn’t. 1h work was knackering. What about the enzymes now, incl. 2x5mg NADH? 12:15 Nope, worse = nauseous instead, burnt tongue feeling. Exhaustion & ache, despite energy ➔ 70-60%/3-4 :x:, FM hasn’t been this bad for ages.
(e.g. :biking_man:, TT = :ping_pong:, :speaking_head:, :mask:, :child:, work ➔ ?90%/1 ?:white_check_mark::x::face_with_monocle:)
ACTIONSPAINS: First seemingly :white_check_mark:, except lying: bit neck & upper back somehow strained. Continuing even stronger in daytime: Everything OK, e.g. energy is/would be there, if not for not feeling well, but nothing’s OK. :x: Jaw inflammation sometimes hurting, that’s not good, sometimes I say to myself it’s the supps working. I’m wondering how I’m sposed to get it done on Thursday the state I’m now in. My wife sez: Wait before wondering. Getting harder to sit. Maybe I need to do Wim Hof’s breathing exercise.
(e.g. lie/stand/sit/walk/cycle, loins, arms up, neck, stiff, 0xp1-2, GI, talk, mask.) ?:white_check_mark::x::face_with_monocle:

Hadn’t noted a variant of the new “local edit”: If we mark just a few words we want to change, then we can choose to edit them. Sometimes a small window will open, sometimes the whole editor, but if that, then at the right position, which is also great for my long posts. Now I just have to figure out how we can make it stay with the small editing window.

(v3: 18:00 same, bit better in the evening, after doing housework in slo-mo)
(v2: 14:50 no change)
(v1: 10:00 - jab sfx increasing)

Triggers & resulting Symptoms

SLEEP (click for details): 10h20, up 7x (65') ➔ Feeling 85% well, Ache 2 of 7 🧐, continuing dead tiredness despite having taken my waking-supps at 9:00, making me unsure whether to get up or not; continuing severe sore throat is usual entry point for cold or flu, let's see if I can keep it down with umckaloabo, calendula/Marigold essence & the regular supps (zinc, other anti-inflammatory), skin burning all over upper half upon getting up, intensely for 30', then further a bit, but not thinking about it, I think cold water'd be counterproductive.

Development:
On having been right about the jab sfx: My table tennis mate, who’d been plugging me getting the jab, was pretty affected that my sfx are this bad with a negative tendency. He asked me if it’s similar to the swine flu that may’ve started my fibro off, and I replied that it is similar to swine flu, fibro, flu, but also has it’s own specific peculiar characteristics, like skin irritation (today a sort of skin burning all over).
Thankfully there was pretty much silence when I updated all my mates about my long-term situation (we see each other every 2-3 months, but they do tend to forget some things) after that, a few questions, I had a little bit of a hard job making light of it as I usually do, considering the jab sfx, but it was OK and we went on to further stories about the jab etc, no problem.
Hmm, no, during the swine flu and the flu directly before the fibro full flare, because I don’t need to lie down all day like I did then. Just I can’t move around much for Ache, nausea & I spose a kind of tiredness & fatigue (but still with theoretical energy…).
I think now everyone who so clearly recommended me to get the jabs (that mate, my boss, my acupressurist), will now feel remorse that they were so cock-sure it wdnt harm me, underestimating my fibro, despite my misgivings. All I can do is stress that it was and still is my decision, wanting to avoid hospital at all costs, and that I’ll continue with the 2nd jab after Christmas, whatever the cost.

Development:
My jab-sfx (to be continued):

  1. exhausted.
  2. some energy (not overmuch tho) at the same time, depletes quickly.
  3. no strength in hands etc.
  4. achey-ness, similar but different to fibro-Ache, not as tough, but I feel I can move less and cold showering & cryotherapy doesn’t help.
  5. More sleep needed, despite same supps.
  6. Still tired throughout the day / earlier.
  7. severe sore throat at night, reminiscent of a cold/flu coming up. Only managed to improve that a little, but electric blanket seems to help most as I’m too cold for everything else. After a walk with long johns I left them on, but doesn’t seem to be enough.
  8. extremely cold feet, also hands, lips (often white), electric blanket rather than heat pad or HWB.
  9. nausea when I move, but also all the time, a bit like a tummy bug (like a few weeks ago)
  10. feverish ill feeling most of the time, similar but different to fibro, longer, not influenceable.
  11. feverish feeling increases with effort.
  12. actual “fever” of 1°C, which I never had from the FM-feverishness (36,5 instead of normally 35,5)
  13. burning skin all over torso sometimes (e.g. day 5 several hours)
  14. a few (new) local pains cropping up everywhere, like upper back ache for 4 days.
  15. Stiffness sometimes greatly increased, sometimes not.
  16. Headache the first few days.
  17. Problems moving around might be what Cort calls orthostatic problems. (Walk limited to 2x5’)
  18. A bit more cognitive problems than usual, but not much.
  19. (Bad wind today, no reason I can think of atm)…

Research-search today: I hadn’t seen because it wasn’t linked well, that Cort on healthrising has been publishing new poll results. I’d looked for it, because I realized I wasn’t finding words for all my sfx. Interesting that some people with CFS/FM get an improvement from it. 74 comments to date:

On Brendan’s blog proposing staggered smaller doses (based on the website and the facebook-group results), he mentions swollen glands & dizziness (with ME/CFS), both of which I haven’t had. The first comments under the blog are too anti-vaxx for my liking, but they get better.

In this blog in April on where docs tend to recommend to do the vaccine the first says not to take the 2nd jab if you are still suffering from the first and to take a few things I’m taking anyway (NAC & quercetin), plus Benadryl to stop allergy and fastidine to stop GERD, both of which aren’t my problem, plus rest: doing that.
The 3rd refers to Dr. Klimas and one like her says take antioxidants and don’t go in a flare, done that. Also mentioned are these, which I’m taking a lot of: alpha lipoic acid, ascorbic acid, B6, diamine oxidase enzymes (DAO), luteolin, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), Omega-3’s, riboflavin, SAMe, quercetin, and natural sources of theophylline like green and black teas. (That’s Nancy Klimas here)

I’ve now subscribed to healthrising’s newsletter, as I do like the type of information they provide.

Supps to CHANGE: :face_with_monocle: (Ordered Pf+Sr.+cps machine for Ar) :face_with_monocle:
Stuff, which I’ve got, but could change and are recommended by some doc for jab-“blues”:

  • 800 mg quercetin, I’m taking 1x500mg in the evenings and feeling better after, so now 2x500mg,
  • 1g vitamin C, still got lots of that. But 1g! I think I was taking 100mg. It’s “protect”, so OK for my gut. But better encapsulated to protect my esophagus.
  • 200 mg riboflavin (vitamin B2), I still have 8x100mg from last year.
  • Evenings are better, esp. yesterday, the only supp that cd explain that is ubiquinol at 17:00, so I read up that it can be taken up to 200 or for 2-3 weeks even 300mg/day. 3.6g/d = mild GI discomfort the producer Kaneka says. OTOH I’m also taking it to reduce lp(a) and for that it’s better to stay <150mg/d, according to studies. But tried it this morning, didn’t do anything at all.
  • My nausea may be increased by forgetting to eat immediately after the zinc (bisglycinate) in my my C1+2 batch.

Actually I’m adjusting to a new target of 20%, I hope that’s only temporary tho… Today 1h10 for 1 light-bulb & 15 flower bulbs. Not easy, but a bit better than yesterday. Cooking for 30’ no problem. Managed a big work video meeting for 2h this evening, not needing to talk, but still emotionally strenuous. Still ➔ 80-85%/1-2 :white_check_mark: Still not more than 20% aim. Luckily ‘the “kids”’ are all ill anyway, so not missing anything. No cycling, no TT of course, no walk either.

2021-12-09, Thursday - baaad jab symptoms…

(v2: 10:10 best day followed by “worst”: I’m now lying in bed, blinds down, forcing my heavy hands to type a bit, my heavy eyelids to open a bit in between, hot water bottle & electric blanket & heating on, Continental quilts & pillows all around BUT listening to a weird brilliant long drum solo loud on my headphones and chuckling about the ideas - that’s this strange energy that I still have, distinguishing this from a normal flu.)

Development:
Saw that I’d been giving sleep a too positive :white_check_mark:, instead of :x:/:face_with_monocle:, corrected that.
Doing that I realized a bit better that whether the tick-marks ?:white_check_mark::x::face_with_monocle: turn out as small & colourful or not ?:white_check_mark::x::face_with_monocle: sometimes seem to depend on whether there is a letter or a punctuation mark before.
Also experimented with the new local editing function. We can better prevent the whole editor opening by marking a few whole words instead of something like just the tick marks.
More importantly, I saw that in the first few days there were 2 further jab symptoms
#21: 3 focal seizures on one day (#3)
#22: burnt tongue feeling the first few days.

So re-arranging the list that makes:

  1. exhaustion,
  2. some energy, but depletes quickly,
  3. little strength, arms/hands often heavy
  4. Ache different to fibro,
  5. showering very unpleasant.
  6. movement of more than 1-2 mins feels bad. For slow walking 10’ is the max. (occasional exceptions).
  7. More sleep,
  8. still tired or dead tired,
  9. Strong sore throat for 7 days, until getting it gone by
  10. permanent heat (electric blanket, 5th pair of (woolen) socks, long johns inside, hot water bottles at night).
  11. Otherwise usually extremely cold feet, hands, lips often white.
  12. Usually slight nausea,
  13. if I move: more,
  14. feverish-ill usually, a bit different to fibro, longer, not influenceable,
  15. worse from slight movement, even more from slight strain,
  16. actual “fever” of 1°C higher than usual (36,5°C instead of 35,5)
  17. Burning “skin” over the whole torso (partly legs) sometimes, then for several hours
  18. stiffness more
  19. brain fog more
  20. “sore muscles” in backside more.
  21. Sometimes better for a few hours (often evenings, different to fibro) or half a day.
    In the first few days:
  22. local pain (upper back, hands),
  23. headache,
  24. 3 focal seizures,
  25. “burnt tongue”.

Reasons to be cheerful #160 I think I’ve got the energy to at least do some music producing, even tho singing’d be too strenuous.

2021-12-10, Friday - acupressure was strenuous (& cycling took 20 instead of 10’), but OK, tiredness from the short night didn’t hit home much in the evening.

2021-12-11, Saturday - our Carols & Lessons today was streamed & left on youtube :hugs:

A friend texted us that it was being streamed! Christmas was here!
(v2 17:15 sad, cos I won’t manage to get to an English Carols & Lessons Service today, my personal Christmas, due to the continuing jab sfx on Day #11)
(v1 14:30: sort of cold symptoms, I think from my acupressurist, despite both wearing mask… decreasing sleep & cold tolerance, increasing nausea.)

Triggers & resulting Symptom

SLEEP (click for details): 8h37, up 6x (68') due mainly to stuffy nose ➔ Feeling 80% well, Ache 2 of 7 ❌

Development:
:one: My wife thinks it’s getting better slowly, despite the “cold” affliction after acupressure.
:two: And my mum asked how much the setback is (2 months she thought…).

So I’ll compare the 25 additional symptoms I’ve been having (above) with
:two: how much I had them with just FM and with
:one: now on Day 12 (+% = improvement).

  1. exhaustion: Worse for longer than ever with just FM, still the case, praps +30% now on Day 12.
  2. some energy, but depletes quickly: Same as 1.
  3. little strength, arms/hands often heavy: Same as just FM, +60%.
  4. Ache different to fibro: Same as 1, +0%, i.e. unchanged.
  5. showering very unpleasant: Same as 1, +10%.
  6. movement of more than 1-2 mins feels bad. For slow walking 10’ is the max. (occasional exceptions): Same as 1, +40%.
  7. More sleep: Not as bad as FM before April. Now on Day 12: +80% compared to Day 4 etc.
  8. still tired or dead tired: Same as 7.
  9. Strong sore throat for 7 days, until getting it gone by: Worse than just FM. +100%, i.e. 0
  10. permanent heat (electric blanket, 5th pair of (woolen) socks, long johns inside, hot water bottles at night). Much worse than just FM, +20%.
  11. Otherwise usually extremely cold feet, hands, lips often white. Much worse than just FM, +20%.
  12. Usually slight nausea: Much worse than just FM, +20%.
  13. if I move: more: Much worse than just FM, +30%.
  14. feverish-ill usually, a bit different to fibro, longer, not influenceable, Much worse than just FM, +40%.
  15. worse from slight movement, even more from slight strain, Much worse than just FM, +30%.
  16. actual “fever” of 1°C higher than usual (36,5°C instead of 35,5) Not in FM at all, -10% cos 36,6°C today.
  17. Burning “skin” over the whole torso (partly legs) sometimes, then for several hours: Not in FM at all, +100% (but comes in bouts, so may still return).
  18. stiffness more: Like just FM before GABA etc., +40%.
  19. brain fog more: Like just FM before GABA etc., +40%.
  20. “sore muscles” in backside more: New, +60%.
  21. Sometimes better for a few hours (often evenings, different to fibro) or half a day. Like FM, +50%, slightly getting more.
    In the first few days:
  22. local pain (upper back, hands): still gone.
  23. headache: still gone, except during the “almost-cold”. (COVID-symptom)
  24. 3 focal seizures: still gone. (not a COVID-symptom, but possible jab-effect)
  25. “burnt tongue”: returned once, but gone. (not a COVID-symptom)

So :one: of the 25, 5-6 have improved to :zero:: local pain, headache, seizures, burnt tongue, praps the bouts of burning skin, (sore throat (but only as long as I keep very warm)). These I would call the immediate ‘normal’ reactions everyone might have in the first week.
However:
+80% improvement: more sleep, tired - since the 2nd week.
60%: Strength/heavy arms (may be too optimistic), sore backside muscles.
50%: bouts of improvement.
40%: stiffness, brain fog, movement/walking.
30%: feverish-ill, slight movement/strain, nausea upon moving, exhaustion, energy & depletion.
20%: nausea without moving, cold extremities, permanent heat nec.
10%: showering unpleasant.
0%: Ache (different)
-10%: +1°C “fever”.
So if these were chronic, but improving at a similar rate, then it’d take another 4 weeks for these core problems to maybe improve: movement/energy/exhaustion, nausea & cold.

:two: How much setback?

(6 months (June): tiredness/sleep, brain fog?)
8 months (before GABA (but despite still using it!)): Stiffness,
16 months: short bouts of energy (then due to cryotherapy), continual Ache.
never had it with FM: +1°C “fever”, almost continual nausea,
or had it long or as severely: feverishness, cold intolerance, movement, showering unpleasant, exhaustion & exhaustibility, sore backside muscles.
So overall if at all my symptoms now were comparable to fibro plus the symptoms in the week after the spinal tap. I think Mar20, almost 2 years ago, but that’s not a setback it’s a worst-case scenario. My mum’s sure I’ll find away out, my wife is hoping for a miracle - and everyone inclined is :pray:.

Reasons to be cheerful #164 Wow, energy, no exhaustion, no symptoms, but keeping warm.

2021-12-14, Tuesday - 2 weeks after the jab & apparently recovering…

(v4: 14:40 yup, 1h slow yardwork (sawing!) with lots of breaks seems OK-ish, felt good to do something for my body for a change and not needing as much stamina as TT… Development: The jab-fx were sort of a massive flu-like fibro flare plus nausea.
(v3: 12:25 yoga nidra after music production helped. Let’s see if I can do some yardwork.)
(v2: 9:50 woke up after long sleep heated up, instead of cold; not as well as I was, let’s see)
(v1: “100%” back to normal in the evening! :crazy_face: (since Monday 15:00) - spontaneous remission?! (Prayer? :pray: Cortisol? Who knows… :mage: ))

Triggers & resulting Symptoms

SLEEP (click for details): 9h, up 4x (40') ➔ Feeling 80% well, Ache 1 of 7 ✅, but heated up & 36,65°C...

05:40 5’ 85%/2 p0 st1 drink fw1’ slight stomach ache → drink, stuffy nose → air
-08:09 all heated up, p0, st1
Sum: 1h30+8:10-(5+10+20+5=)40’ = 9h, up 4x (40’)

ACTIVITIES (aiming for 40% - well 20% - of pre-fibro)ACHE: Evening still ➔ 90%/1 :white_check_mark: (that’s back to 90% of 40%), but why. And why ache in my hands, like after the jab? I don’t think I overdid the hand exercisers today, did less than usual. 10:00 Music production lesson strenuous, “hurt”, but I don’t need to move, just have to learn to relax all the time. Praps I should have a yoga nidra relaxation exercise running in the background or immediately after. Or why not BEFORE!? 55’ yardwork (wdve taken 15’ pre-fibro, but hey): Sawing wasn’t as tough as the weight of the chainsaw, but all in all successful, considering. That was good for lungs and whole body.
(e.g. cycle :biking_man:, TT = :ping_pong:, meetings/social :speaking_head:, mask :mask:, kids :child:, work ➔ ?90%/1 ?:white_check_mark::x::face_with_monocle:)
ACTIONSPAINS: :white_check_mark:, Slightly sore neck muscles from the neck exercises. That’s good, not bad. :white_check_mark:. Pain in right hand from sawing was OK again after 1h. :white_check_mark:
(e.g. lie, stand, loins, sit, arms up, neck, stiff, walk, cycle, 0xp1-2, GI, talk, mask.) ?:white_check_mark::x::face_with_monocle:

Development:
Jab-sfx: 08:15 heated up, slightly feverish, increased temperature 36,65°C. Everything a bit of a strain but a bit of slow work in fresh air was good.
My wife heard someone say the jab gave her a massive rheumatism flare and is using this expression now. (She likes explaining to others that fibromyalgia is sort of ‘tissue rheumatism’ anyway, even if it’s not correct, so that they understand.)
So/but: Maybe a big fibro flare coupled with the flu, without too much runny nose, but as opposed to fibro including temperature, and maybe the biggest flare of fibro alone I’ve ever had. Easier than “25 symptoms”. I was too wrapped up in symptom tracking to (want to try to) see the big picture… Interesting that there were bouts of feeling well too, sort of “anti-flares”.

ACTIVITIES (aiming for 40% of pre-fibro)ACHE: Technical problems, e.g. uploading 60 bills to my sickness insurance was no fun, next time they’re gonna get it on paper if they don’t react to my letter of complaint, with 15 problems and many suggestions what to improve. ➔ 80%/1 :face_with_monocle:, trying some TT today! 2 games, very slow, cycling slow.

(e.g. lie, stand, loins, sit, arms up, neck, stiff, walk, cycle, 0xp1-2, GI, talk, mask.)

Treatments

THERAPIES: Lot of ideas for psychotherapy today: Less acupressure?, re-imagining bad thoughts like bad dreams or memories or focusing on the good bits, limiting stressful activity (technical problems - talking to others). (Also need to destress next Tuesday’s appointments, check dentist first, praps move a meeting and acupressure to Wednesday.)
Ideas from the session:

  1. Free myself from co-dependent & parentifying feelings when telling - not asking - my acupressurist that I want to reduce the sessions.
  2. Practice looking in the mirror, praps with the eyes of little Jay.
  3. My 3 for the bad dream & bad memory of missing a ferry were good: Overriding it with a new imagination, a new ‘reality’ - I paid a person on the street to take me to the ferry. And using Yoga Nidra.
  4. Also using Yoga Nidra before and after a singing session (which also is confronting “the man in the mirror”).
  5. It’s good not to use the things bought for me regularly altho I don’t want them & they are making things I do want go off, after I’ve announced I won’t be doing it any more (which I’ve already made clear).

Development:
In a sense the jab-flare wasn’t as bad as a flu or a total fibro flare, probably due to everything I still do, because I was not able to move without pain & nausea, but if I didn’t I felt quite OK. How do I describe that? Had something of locked-in-syndrome, altho of course not that bad either.

Research-search today:

Lessons in self-care #153 Psychotherapy taught me many strenuous lessons today.
Reasons to be cheerful #166 Table tennis! Everything slowly getting more normal. Reconvalescing.

Treatments

THERAPIES: One more challenge my psychologist brought up: 6) what makes me pull things thru so much, like when experiencing the technical difficulties. I’d argue that I hardly ever feel the need to do this, but in this case it was a big one on my ToDo list (with several big steps involved), which I’d been putting off quite a time OTOH, OTO wasn’t pressing, but when money (doc bills) & technology (transferring files & malfunctioning webpage) are involved, even both, things just get strenuous and at the same time it’s good to get them off your back.

Nausea has gone, I can move fairly freely, if slow, no real flu-type symptoms any more (cold etc.)
But table tennis today shows I’m nothing like finished with the jab fx.
Means I won’t be able to work next week, i.e. before Christmas either.
Also means it’ll be extremely tough to get my tooth done Tuesday, even if nec.
And I shdnt be thinking about the 2nd jab much at all yet.
