Apparently, I am getting back to my "old" self - the one that has continual hot flashes while everybody else is freezing! It was like that last night, and this morning I am nearly sweating but nottttttttttttt quite at that point, just feel really hot and i am sitting RIGHT beside the AC unit here. (then again it could just be the crappy window unit's fault not producing enough cool air, ha) My hands are swollen, retaining water. I had four hours sleep last night and here I am, hubby woke me up at 8-friggin'30 *mutters*, now i can't go BACK to sleep, so I'm writing.
I did a blood pressure reading this morning, laying down and then standing. it did rise but this heart rate makes me nervous. And I wonder if it's not skewed because I had been up prior to this when hubby went to pick bb up from his folks house so they could go to church, and i laid back down again for about 30 minutes before doing the reading. However I will note, I did not get dizzy when I stood up. Anyway -
at 9:27 - bp = 119/76, hr = 80
at 9:28 - bp = 113/86, hr = 101
(at 10 am, temp was 97.8, higher than it had been, but not 'there' yet) Didn't I read I should take them 3x3 (3 times a day three hours apart) then take average for that day's temp? I will do that in case.
OF course since I wasn't monitoring these before hc, i don't know if this is because of too much or i'm getting enough, hypo, hyper, etc. I've been good about keeping to the schedule Doc set for me on hc - 5-10-10-5/10 (if needed). My sinuses are getting stuffed constantly again, and I'm still needing naps in the afternoon again. But I am consistently also doing more during the day I think. Still have not tried any more Armour. (read: not taking any)
and after playing tennis yesterday, i am now having "regular" menstrual bleeding. It had looked for the last day or so before like it was slacking off, but oh no, not now! *joy*
*harrumph* The 8th cannot come fast enough. I may call Monday morning and just go ahead and ask if they can add thyroid panel and sex hormones to the gallon or so they need already from me. If Doc has not emailed me back by Monday, I will.
I feel like I am so far off course.
