I had a difficult week last week. All this time, the pain I've experienced has been mostly burning and just general discomfort. I usually compare it to getting something in my eye that's irritating. Annoying, yes, but not life altering.
But starting last Saturday, I felt a different kind of pain - a sharp kind of pain when I shifted in my seat or walked or wore jeans that were close fitting. I finally understand what a lot of the women who are in my class experience. And it really sucks. That pain has gone away for now, but I still worry that it's just under the surface.
I had a follow-up appointment with my specialist and she said that the inflammation has gotten better, but then why are my symptoms worse? She changed my treatment, so hopefully things will get better soon. I'm still trying to stay positive, doing some stretching and meditating, trying to eat healthier foods, and taking better care of myself in general. Stress exacerbates my condition, so I'm trying to eliminate that from my life as well (which is difficult these days).
