Feels like poison

Sometimes I have a pain that I swear is pain in my veins and vessels. The first time I remember feeling this is with imetrex migraine shots but now it happens when I am unmediated. Anyone know if this is related to PsA? It’s always a bit worrisome.

Where’s that cane?

It’s been a long time since my legs hurt so bad I couldn’t walk. I guess I should have seen it coming. Tuesday I was limpy and sore all over but by Wednesday afternoon I was on the upswing. Went to work still stiff but back to normal and was able to take my dance class and by halfway through I felt great.
Sometimes dance seems to be just what my body needs when I am in moderate pain. Thursday was a work day in the gallery and I spent most of it behind the desk. After the hour plus drive home my legs just didn’t want to move. Then I watched a movie in the theater. My legs that don’t seen to mind mild hiking, dancing or sitting like a child on the floor certainly seem to hate sitting in a chair for most the day. Out of the movie theater the pain was pretty severe so I thought I needed to do the opposite of sitting in a chair and dance. I tried. And tried again. It wasn’t hurting much worse to dance than walk I thought. It was true. But walking was excruciating. Dancing was not the answer at this point. So i limped to the door and my legs were refusing to work under me. I couldn’t make it further than the tables outside. It took me a while to get to my car even with the assistance of a young gentleman. I got out of bed in the middle of the night and my legs just collapsed under me and I wound up on the floor. I can walk now, With a lot of focus but the leg pain is a flaming red. In a couple of hours with a little medication and movement I am sure I will be just fine. But this morning I wish I knew where that can was.
