over the last several days i have been feeling horribly bloated and uncomfortable---not sure what is going on. on new year's eve i couldn't make it to midnight and crashed early while the family was still up. i woke up a few hours later in a lot of pain---especially in my knees. they were aching so badly that i took double what i normally take for pain---and it didn't phase the pain. i actually went downstairs away from my husband and cried!
a little later, he asked me if my meds had kicked in, but they hadn't---so i took another double dose of what i normally take, then i went and sat in a hot tub for a few minutes. i finally got some relief and fell asleep.
i think that the fact that i have been taking more pain meds lately is making my system so sluggish----and that is why i am feeling so bloated and miserable. some days i look like i am 5 months pregnant.
does anyone have any advice on this one? we have had snow the last few days---so i guess a weather change has been adding to my pain.
