Stiffness and Pain

My pain and stiffness have both been doing pretty good lately, well, until today. I have been experiencing stiffness all day in my hands and some pain and general weakness in my finger joints, too. I do not know if it was caused from a fall I had yesterday or if it was something I ate, or maybe just happening for some unknown reason.

I was under a bit of stress yesterday and was very tense last night when trying to go to sleep...It was one of those nights were I wished I could just disappear, but no matter how tight I huddled under the blankets things didn't get better. So stress may have caused a bit of a problem with my pain today, but it is nothing but a theory.

It has been beautiful here in Nova Scotia for the last few days, very nice to see the rain has stopped and the sun coming out! I hope everyone has a wonderful week!


  1. Sometimes it can be frustrating when you are watching everything you eat because you panic wondering if the last thing you ate was what caused the pain/stiffness. You are doing wonderful at being so aware of your body. I hope your week is less stressful.

  2. Sorry for the delay in responding to your comment, Cathy! How are you?

    It is frustrating to try and figure out what might have caused pain or stiffness. For the most part now I try to eat healthy and hope for the best!

    I hope you are doing well :)

  3. Hi Stacie,
    Yes, I am doing well. I agree. Eating well is the number one step we can take to feeling better.
