I am in a lot of pain. Didn't sleep last night. I went to another doctor today and had some new x-rays taken to rule out bone-related issues, and the doctor decided I have bursitis of the knee and possible quadriceps tendinitis. So, I have a new compression sleeve for my knee area, high-dose anti-inflammatory drugs, and painkillers. I am alternating ice with heat, trying to stay off it, and walking very, very slowly if at all.
I have had no appetite for days and have been unable to get to the store for fresh produce, so last night's dinner was hard boiled eggs, a celery stalk, and some raw broccoli and cauliflower. Today will be taco meat over lettuce. I have pretty much gone back to using protein shakes (leftover Medifast packets) for the rest of the day. That and black coffee make up my day. Hopefully soon I will be able to shop, prep and cook more but right now the pain is making me nauseous and I don't even want to eat.
The knee sleeve had XXXL printed on the inside of it. I hate that. I have always carried a lot of my weight in my legs. No doubt, my weight is an issue with the continued knee/joint/foot issues. I am pretty much in pain 24/7, literally. Hardly slept last night from the pain, so hopefully the painkillers tonight will allow me to sleep.
My weight should be going down. I hope it is. This is not the life I was meant to live.
