RA Health Log Day 2

Day 2 of my Rheumatoid Arthritis health log. Today I woke up with no issues and did my regular exercise on the elliptical and the Bowflex. Very slight stiffness in my left knee this evening only lasting about 20 minutes. Pain level a 1, just annoying.

I skipped breakfast, had egg salad for lunch and a KFC chicken bowl minus the gravy for dinner.


RA Health Log Day 1

Day 1 of my Rheumatoid Arthritis health log. Today I woke up feeling good, had my latte and headed downstairs to workout. I did a total of one hour on my elliptical and fifteen minutes on the Bowflex. Currently I am trying to do intervals between the machines. Fifteen minutes on the elliptical then five on the Bowflex concentrating on core body muscles with only ten pounds for resistance.  The elliptical I have set to manual. Last year I tried setting the resistance up one on the elliptical and it did not work out well for me.

Late this afternoon I had some slight stiffness in my left hand. The pain level was around a one, so it was just annoying. This lasted around five hours. I also had a stomach ache after I ate a few of the kid’s cheese puffs. That will teach me!

Today I had a granola bar for breakfast, a salad for lunch and egg salad for dinner. Now that I am up past my bedtime, my tummy decided it needed more food so I had a bowl of Fiber One cereal.

I am off for my eight hours of sleep!

Biotinidase Deficiency Not RA

Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in Dec 2003 because of joint pain and fatigue. Found out on July 19, 2013 that I really was profoundly low on Vitamin B7 because of a rare disease called Biotinidase Deficiency. When I found out I was very weak, hardly could get out of bed, could not turn my head without getting light headed, dragging my feet when I tried to walk, struggled to breath daily for years and was having many many other issues. From the first 24 hours of taking Biotin my symptoms started to disappear and my body started getting stronger again.
