@susanlim @mrsalvingraves3 One thing I see we all have in common is Anxiety? This was brought on by being diagnosed with cancer. I think its a fear of the unknown? At least it is for. I also notice that is something I am not able to control. I been a control freak my whole life. So a cancer diagnosis is very difficult to handle. I can't control it's destiny. So that creates the anxiety.
When I was overly stressing, back when I was first diagnosed, I had pains that came from nowhere. Everything hurt on my body. I think I made it worse by reading so much online. The more I read, the more pain I felt. I had to start taking sleeping pills to get through the night. This way i wasn't up all night reading nonstop. I searched how does one die from lymphoma or colon cancer? I kept thinking back to my Grandpa's, and my Mom's deaths related to cancer. And I found myself doing nothing but focusing on dying. I had to change this. There were days I didn't get out of bed. Just read and cried all day. I would compose myself just enough to plan a client trip. Then when I finished that I went back my hysteria state.
It took a good year and half to stop freaking out. It has taken another year to get my confidence back. Going to the gym and working out helped. Taking long walks helped. I stopped focusing o,n my illnesses and started focusing on my life.
Do I have pain? I do every now and then. At times my I get chest pains, pains in my arms and headaches. Now are they related to lymphoma, I don't know the Dr says no. Lymphoma does not cause pain. Have I thought they just told me that so I don'y worry? Yes the thought has crossed my mind. I take a couple of Tylenol when it gets too bad.
We have sluggish working lymph nodes. I think at times they are going to hurt? I just start taking extra vitamin C, enchinacea, turmeric and a couple of Tylenol.
Drink lots of water, get a lot of rest, and a few days later I am usually feeling better.
I firmly believe anxiety plays a big part in the pain I am feeling. So my advice is try and exercise more walk a lot. Just try it and let me know if that helps?
Get out of the house and away from the computer.
Talk to you later,, It's time for me to get some exercise in and off to work..
