I’ve been handling my side effects of the Z fairly well. Though I look like I’m struggling and it’s hard to get going, I’m not too bad. It’s been mostly joint pain – every day is a new adventure, as it travels a bit. But I know that it could be a lot worse.
Today’s pain inventory: Right thumb, first finger, right ankle swollen, left knee, left shoulder, left wrist, left pinky and thumb.
Newest issue? The bottoms of my feet.
As in they are swollen and hard and hurt like mad to stand or walk on. As in walking is next to impossible with bare feet, so I’ve taken to wearing slippers [side note: I need new, cozier slippers]. As in the slippers don’t really make it much better.
Last night really sucked pain wise for sleeping. I ended up in the chair instead of the bed and finally got some sleep. I know these side effects could be worse, so I hate to complain too much, but holy crap!
As most people in the midst of treatment say: As long as it’s working, it’s worth it.
