You never know

Posted by kelus on 2/26/99 at 00:00 (005081)

Hi everyone. This PF is a strange, unpredictable thing.
I went about a week with zero pain
Then one day, out of the blue, they hurt like hell. I could hardly walk. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary.
Then yesterday, my friend called and wanted to take the kids to the Carnival. I thought to myself,'Yeah, right, like I could walk all over the Carnival and survive!'
But, I decided I would take my son, if only for a short while.
I got there and went ALL NIGHT without hardly any pain. I mean, they hurt, but not like I thought.
So, I was expecting them to hurt REALLY bad when I woke up this morning, and Loe and behold, I have ZERO pain this morning.

OK, could someone explain this? This PF is sooooo unpredictable, that you can't even plan your daily life.

bye!

Different shoes? Different terrain? Different amount of standing? Blind wonderful frustrating luck? I say enjoy it, prepare for the worst and be glad when the better happens.

It is so bizarre, happens for me, too. Even my sweetie husband starts looking sideways at me when some days, I can climb Mt. Everest and other days I had better ever-rest. (I know, groan).
Husband also suggested I keep a journal to try to track such things, a good idea, but it keeps my mind on my feet ALL the time instead of most the time. I guess we better enjoy the good times

I too experience a whole range of symptoms at variable times, and have a hard time making sense out of it. It reminds me of a friend who is chemically sensitive and how her symptoms vary so much. Also, one of her first symptoms was her feet stopped working right and for a while she was in a wheelchair.

I have noticed the weather plays a part. Today (2-27-99) it's raining and I'm having quiet a lot of discomfort. You really 'just never know'. BEst wishes to all
