Recently, my muscles have been aching. It started with muscle pain in my thigh. Now I have muscle aches in both legs and both arms.
My GP thinks the pain might be caused by a deficiency in Calcium and Magnesium.
He gave me pills to take, but I have to take them at least an hour before or an hour after I take any other drugs, because they prevent absorption.
I take chemo three times a day, and pain killers. I am constantly popping pills. I try to follow the guidelines (take this chemo without food, take this chemo with....). It made me crazy for a while, but, thanks to the advice of more experienced pill poppers, I do not get uptight about all the rules anymore and will be flexible.
I cannot be flexible about mixing the Calcium and the Magnesium with the chemo, because I really do need my body to absorb all the chemo.
So, I am constantly looking for windows when I can pop a pill or two....
Meanwhile, I still have all these aches and pains, which make me want to stay in bed all day.
I do not feel like moving, at all.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
