Is anyone bowel incontinent? I have started leaking out poo and I don't know it's there until I go to the loo and I, well, smell it! My GP is treating me for severe impacting, so I'm on Laxido, was on Lactulose but it didn't do the trick . But, since taking it (started last Friday) twice daily, from Monday this week, several times a day, there is always some poo (and I mean several wipes worth, we're going through loo roll at a rate of knots ) sometimes quite a bit on my… read more
If I sit or lay down for too long, my fingers and toes get very cold and soon, I feel like I am freezing to death. When I get up and move around, I feel okay after a little while. But, if I move around a lot, I over heat, and it takes forever to cool off and i feel very weak.
Do you find exercise helps with your illness'? I have PsA, Fibromyalgia and Severe Asthma- just to name a few. My husband thinks I need to start exercising, but I disagree.

I'm 52, on Enbrel and wondering about if I should get the Shingles vaccine.
I usually don't pay much attention to physical discomfort bit yesterday it got so bad I took myself to the ER. I was having severely nausea and loan up the sides of my back. Blood tests and a cat scan showed nothing wrong, in fact a couple of nurses commented on how they rarely see a healthier specemin of my age.

After mentally focusing as long or intense as I can handle on a "less brainfoggy" afternoon (or hour), I am then more deeply exhausted than ever! It takes me DAYS (or longer) to recooperate back to "My usual."
It's BRAIN activity, not muscle activity. Why is my BODY deeply fatigued?
