Went to see Cupping Guy on Sunday because my shoulder is getting to the point that I can't keep functioning with it this way. I got a good hour long massage on my upper back and shoulder girdle then he covered my back in cups and left them there for about 10 minutes. Lots changed. Like whoa.

Monday saw a headache settle in from my shoulder in the evening but is was knocked down to manageable by an alcoholic drink(that had its own problems but I will write about that later). During the day I was super functional. I worked at the mall. I had a client. Then I went grocery shopping. It is possible that I did too much and tried to carry things that were too heavy for the state my shoulder is currently in and that caused the headache.

Tuesday was chiro adjustment, lunch with

It is possible that I did too much and tried to carry things that were too heavy for the state my shoulder is currently in and that caused the headache.

Tuesday was chiro adjustment, lunch with <lj-user="lapis_witch">, and errands before two clients. Again I felt super functional and capable. Again, by the end of the day, I was in a Lot of pain. TBH I was in a fair amount of pain before my clients ever arrived. But I got shit done. Folded and carried work laundry, started two loads of laundry for the wedding trip this weekend, picked up all the stuff I need to do fire cupping, and hossed everything to my office. Pain.

While I was at the school bookstore I picked up a new product that is an ointment made with hemp extract, it has CBDs in it. Given how well the CBD honey sticks I had in Portland worked I figured I would give it a shot. It seemed to help the pain in my hand and made the shoulder/neck stuff tolerable enough to get through my two clients. While there I also picked up some Rocktape. Need help applying it tho and the Honey isn't confident in his skills.

So the alcohol and attendant issues: MACS is looming large in my mind. Preface, I know the reaction to the alcohol was amplified because of the cupping and it being allergy season. I had a whole body histamine reaction that was disturbing in intensity. I took two Benadryl and hid in the one(at the time) air conditioned room. Once that kicked in things started feeling better. Its looking like I need to start taking Benadryl reflexively as a way of dealing with whatever weird body thing I have going on. My new PC agreed that trying Singulair was something she as comfortable. Its among other things a histamine blocker. I should probably keep better track but I feel like I have had fewer issues since starting to take it. I wish there was a better/easier/more reliable way to check for histamine levels in the body.

Huh. I find this interesting -- I used to take singulair (when my seasonal allergies were really bad) - this summer I am not and my arthritis is worse. So now I wonder...

And perhaps also related --one of my friends has lupus and one of her first lines of attack for an outreak is benedryl.
