Rheumatoid Arthritis Health Log

RA health log. Today I am changing the health log a little. I will update it daily if I can or write about several days if I miss a day or two. Today I am catching up on the last week. Saturday I had stiffness in my hands when I was holding the camera. Monday night I began to get stiffness in my neck and shoulders. Yesterday it finally started raining and the pain and stiffness have went down in the pain levels. Just annoying right now.

I finally setup an appointment for a neck, back and shoulder massage, it is for Saturday and I am looking forward to it. Flexeril is definitely keeping the pain down, I did forget to take it one night and I was in pain while sitting the next day.

I only did exercise 2 days this past week, getting ready to hit the Wii now and I will try to do that daily if I can.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Health Log Day 48

Day 48 of my RA health log. I woke up with stiffness in my right foot.  I also could feel stiffness in my shoulders and hands. Last night I woke  up for about 2 hours my knee kept stiffening up. I also woke up this morning with an optical migraine,  which my eye doctor said that is usually from inflammation. It did go away about 30 minutes later. No major breathing issues today!

I did 1 hour of Wii Rhythm Boxing today. It did help get the stiffness out of my shoulders and back, as well as my foot. I plan on going on a walk with my boyfriend and his dog tonight.

Tonight I took my boyfriend for a birthday dinner at Benihanas. I had steak and chicken, chicken fried rice, onion soup, salad, the veggies and mushrooms. Chocolate ice cream for dessert.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Health Log Day 46

Day 46 of my RA health log. My shoulders were were tender when I woke up, it went away when I moved around. But I did have stiffness in my back most of the day. My feet were sore a little today but better tonight then they were last night. My hands and shoulders stiffened up a little while I was holding the camera for a long period. I was doing videos and not photos, so I had to hold it up longer then when I do photos. Breathing issues are better here then it was in Indiana but still slight issues when outside, inside I am fine.

My exercise today was walking around the conference. I may do some boxing tonight before I go to bed, try to stretch those muscles out.

I had a Starbucks venti mocha for lunch. This evening I had garlic cream fettuccine with chicken and then some Cold Stone ice cream with my boyfriend.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Health Log Day 45

Day 45 of my RA health log.  Today I woke up and had tender shoulders which went away when I started moving around. I have had stiffness in my upper back, luckily my boyfriend can help crack my back. We spent the day at VidCon 2010 and my hands did stiffen up a little while holding the camera for a long time, it went away when I stopped. Now it is the end of  the day and my feet have been a little sore.  I will have my feet up soon.

My exercise was walking around at a conference today.

I had a latte for breakfast and a Starbucks venti mocha for lunch. Tonight I had chicken marsala with mushrooms and noodles for dinner.

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.
