Body, Why Won't You Just Cooperate

I'm so frustrated with my body right now. I wrote last month about the change in my cycle and subsequently my pattern. This month my cycle is even more out of control. I've been experiencing an extreme body wide discomfort. No matter what I can't get comfortable. In fact the discomfort has turned into a kind of pain.

I've also been experiencing internal overheating. How do I explain to you-all how unusual this is for me? You see, I don't have much personal insulation, especially after losing so much weight over the past 5 years of chronic pain. But even before that I've always been tall and skinny with very low blood pressure. I've always been the kind of gal who gets cold when it drops below 70 degrees. I've always kept my living space warm the way grandma likes it. I've been the kind of girl whose nose, hands and feet can get cold even on a hot summer day. But for the past few days I've been overheating to such a high degree that my normal activity is disrupted.

I don't know what's going on here but I do know this is not what I need right now. I'll be headed to my GYN at the end of December so I guess I'll just keep good records of what's going on and look forward to some answers and hopefully some relief at that time.

I'm so sick of this game - this waiting for appointments and hoping for relief that isn't often obtained. Body, why won't you just cooperate?


  1. I'm so sorry that you're having such a rough time right now. I hope that you get some answers, when you go see your doctor in a couple of months... if not before. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers, dear. Blessings.

  2. Thanks Jamie! I can use all the prayers I can get right now :)

  3. Migrainista: Please don't wait too long - I took too long to find the correct doctor to check my pain and dysfunction, and I still live with the consequences of my procrastination.

  4. Hey girl, a cold nose, hands, and feet in the summer is a sign of Raynauds! I do this,too. My husband also calls me iceberg butt, because it too feels like it is freezing off! I hope you find your Dr. House soon!

  5. Stay strong. Fighting for the right care can sure take alot of energy we don't have but man it sure is well worth it when you can get better.
