HGH & FMS Experiment

Where Human Growth Hormone Meets Fibromyalgia

The time change is kicking my a$$. I prefer daylight savings time (once I get used to it) because I like having daylight extend into the evening (being night blind, it helps; I feel like a frigging 10 year old during the winter, when I have to be home by 4:30-5 o’clock); these first few days, though, with my sleep cycles screwed up, my poor beee-hind drags like I had cement in my underwear.

The good thing is, aside from being tired, this year I don’t feel a nasty fibro-flare trying to piggy back onto the fatigue as it has in the past. All I am is tired; my pain levels are pretty damned low right now. On a scale of 1 to 10, with one being merely annoying and 10 being “oh my god my nipples are going to explode and I’m going to die,” I’d put it at about a 2. Normal for me is about a 4.

The one thing I have noticed the past couple days is increased thirst. Having diabetes insipidus complicates this, because I don’t know if it’s because of that—and perhaps I need to increase my dose of DDAVP—or if it’s a side effect of the Somatropin. And if it is because of the Somatropin, will an extra dose of the DDAVP take care of it, or will that just cause me to stop urinating as much yet leave me with increased thirst?

I’ll give it a day or two, and if it looks like I’m retaining water, or not putting out as much as I’m taking in, I’ll get in touch with my endocrinologist.

Or, another thought… I wonder if there’s something about being in the pool so much that’s contributing to increased thirst? I am awfully thirsty for the first half hour after I get out of the pool; could be the chlorine, or the extra sweating from working out. I’m not sure.
