I was right about the muscle pain. It kicked in on Friday (day 4). I basically spent the day on the sofa with my codeine within arm's reach! My head was still funny as well, so I couldn't read or do very much apart from watch the Commonwealth Games (yay go England!). I managed to stay up till about 7.30pm. What a fun Friday night!
On Saturday (day 5) it was pretty much the same, although my head felt a bit better. However, I still couldn't read so more telly for me. Hurrah for Twitter which makes me feel slightly more interactive than I would feel otherwise. Had a glass of wine for the first time in about a week, followed by more codeine and sleeping tablets in the hope that I would get a good night's sleep and wake up refreshed and ready to go. Managed to stay up till almost 9pm. Whoo!
Sunday (day 6) was a lot better; my plan worked to some extent! I slept quite well and woke up, still sore but feeling more like myself. DH warned me not to do too much though, so I did just spend the day resting even more and catching up with the X Factor and Hell's Kitchen!
So symptoms over the past 3 days have been: muscle ache and spasms, nail ache, tooth and gum ache, chemo mouth, sore throat, stupid brain.
This morning (day 7) it's A LOT better. Still sore, but it's fading. But my blooming nails still hurt which is just bizarre. But I plan to do more than chill today.
