So, I’ve already got a call into my rheum about this, and have an appointment coming up on Friday anyway, but wanted to check here from other people who suffer from this disease, see if it rings any bells.
I have… it couldn’t be called pain. A feeling, in my chest? How the heck do you describe this…
Okay, it’s kind of like a lightness, a feeling almost of there being a hole in my chest? I can feel my heartbeat more and more often, but can’t tell if it’s erratic or just noticeable. I don’t believe it was noticeable before, not like this - it’s almost as though I’ve been exercising, you know, when you can feel your heartbeat after working up a sweat? Only it’s nowhere near as pounding as that.
Occasionally, it feels cold, ice cold, even when I’m wrapped up. Only ever briefly though.
Arm isn’t tingling as far as I can tell.
I’d be willing to tie all this into the lack of sleep recently, but my chest felt like this before. Only now it feels like this on top of a brain fog so dense I’d think it was Ye Olde London Fog, dry mouth I can’t believe, eye blurriness, all the really fun stuff, you know?
I’m not making a whole heap of sense, I’m sure. Rambling, brain is all over the place. Just want to know if anyone else could shed some light on this feeling and what it might be?
I don’t even know how to begin with googling it.
