I hurt. I woke up around 5 am this morning feeling swollen (torso, arms, hands, neck) and arthritic (most joints, but particularly the hands).

I'm not really sure what caused it.


1. Mango sorbet. (I am allergic to mango, but there probably isn't a lot in there, and my allergy to mango is usually an itchy mouth... not that I've had any recently.)

2. Fuzzy peach gummies. (Although not a usual food, I have had these in the past with no problem.)

3. Bike ride. (I pushed myself on my bike ride yesterday, but I did listen to my body, and eased back when I felt like I should. Plus, feeling swollen is an odd reaction to exercise.)

4. Weather. (But the weather was crazier on Saturday, and I didn't hurt then.)

5. Pruning a tree yesterday. (But then, my right hand should hurt more than my left.)

6. Running out of vitamin D supplements around a week ago.

I think that last one is my main suspect. I bought more yesterday, so we'll see if I start feeling better.

are you actually swollen, or just feeling swollen? more exercise can make you swollen -- goes along with dehydration (funny, that). feel better!

I'm not sure if I'm actually swollen or not.
