    that's the thing, i didn't lose circulation at all. my arms didn't go pale or dusky at all. part of me was thinking it was just a temperature drop and like.. peripheral neuropathy or something from another condition of mine acting up in a different way.

    dear right foot:

    idk why you feel twisted. i wasn't on you literally at all yesterday. i was in bed in various positions. why do you still feel pulled today. you hurt so bad i had trouble falling asleep at first: The Fuck. i can't feel if you need to be popped in somehow or what but standing isn't helping, nor is moving around. you just feel out of place and want to scream. i get that but knock it the fuck off.

    I've had intense pain in all my left-side lower teeth all night, for no reason. I had a dentist's appointment last month and everything was fine then; Google suggests gum infection but I checked in the mirror and there's no swelling or discolouration or discharge. I'm worried it might be nerve damage of some sort. Anyone know what it might be?

    Idk how old you are or whether you've already had them out, but mine did that when my wisdom teeth were coming in.

    28, and I haven't had them taken out but the one on that side grew in ages ago.

    Have you been clenching your teeth at all? Usually when I'm having tooth pain, especially consistently across a whole region, it's because I've been clenching and haven't realized.

    Possibly. I haven't noticed; I felt fine till I ate dinner last night. Maybe I should go get a night-guard?

    Probably a good idea. The problem with clenching is that most of the time you don't notice, so it feels like pain out of nowhere for no good reason. Though if you ate something with a lot of crunch to it, that could have aggravated your teeth too.

    Wasn't crunchy, but I did eat slightly overcooked meat.

    Might be worth giving the gaps in between your teeth a good clean over with a pick or floss. It's easy to get a particle of meat stuck and it will inflame your gums something chronic; happens to me a lot.

    Did so and found a bit; I thought I'd got it last night, evidently not. Eww, I can't clean my own teeth right :( Still a bit sore but not as bad.

    Something in my left hip keeps popping. It's not painful but every step I take it makes a faint pop that I can hear and feel something shift a bit.

    Not sure what it is but it's probably not good.

    Hey, body. I know that we kinda empathize with Equius, but could we maybe chill a bit on how literal that is right now? It's not even that warm, I've been having to run the space heater periodically to keep from shivering and I'm wrapped in a blanket right now. But apparently what we really need is to sweat so much that I need to turn the water reminder app back on, and seriously think about grabbing a dishtowel to scrub my hands dry and mop up the small puddles of sweat that I'm leaving on my keyboard and mouse.

    (Nowhere near the bits that would actually be a problem, mostly. It's mostly just my palms that are sweating buckets. But it's incredibly annoying.)

    Dear back gremlin:


    I could mostly ignore it when it was only in certain positions, or when starting to lie down/getting up from laying down, but now even just sitting here it's a constant background "stabby stabby stabby"

    I've got shit to do today. I need to be on my feet. I need to take a shower. And I'm fairly certain YOU, you little asshole, are why I couldn't get longer than a half hour's sleep at a stretch.

    Relatedly: I'm not SURE if the pain was interrupting my sleep because I've adjusted to it as background noise except for when the gremlin has good aim and hits a spot that hurts EXTRA A LOT and makes my leg give out or my arm get tingly.

    I don't know what I managed to pinch in my shoulder that's radiating pain down to my thumb, but frankly, it can fuck off and unpinch itself.
