I think that, after watching trumpty on the news last night telling people it might be a great idea to ingest bleach, of shove a UVA light source up their collective arses, in order to defeat/cure/cleans the body of COVID-19, I went to bed primed for a nightmare. And right on cue, at 2:45, yes, A.M. I awoke shivering and in the throes of another terrible cramp.
Same muscle as two weeks ago, my left calf and foot spasming.
Let me tell you, I would not wish this on my worst enemy. It was so painful. Nothing really seem to calm it, given it appears that I am either potassium or magnesium deficient. So I had to ride it out—on and off—for almost 2 horrendous hours.
Drinking Nestle sparkling water did seem to help, a little bit, as did a heated rice bag. But still, I am at a loss as to why this keeps happening.
The 411 health line nurse last night said I need to speak to my doctor and get blood tests for verification of the underlying problem. Eh, so tell me something I didn’t know. But, to be fair, these health resources have a lot more to deal with at the moment, than me crying over a painful cramp.
Been trying since early this morning to have an appointment, with little success. Which leaves me thinking I need to talk to the pharmacist at the very least, and see if there is something they can recommend in the meantime, to help, other than non-existent bananas. But I’m not holding my breath.
Wish me luck, as I think I’m going to need it.
Stay safe out there, people, and take care.
Update: Managed to talk to the pharmacist, and they gave me a plan of action (½ a cholesterol pill instead of a full one at night) and what’s more, they will fax my doctor directly with what’s been happening plus a run down of my stats. Which is great news to my ears. She thinks it’s a case of readjusting my pills. I hope it’s that simple. Fingers crossed.
