Hey, everyone. I hope you’re all doing a lot better than I am.
For the last four days it’s been about 30°C and I’ve had enough.. Tomorrow it’s meant to hit 32°C.
I’m doing everything I can to stay cool and hydrated - I’m drinking between 2 to 3 litres of water/squash. I have a fan on me 24/7. Somehow, I’m managing alright overall - I haven’t fainted or blacked out. And at night time I’ve pretty much been falling asleep very very quickly when I get into bed.
HOWEVER… My joints are killing me. They’re a little swollen, very achy and sometimes even feel like they’re creaking, if that makes sense? It’s mainly my wrists, fingers, knuckles, elbows, knees and ankles. If I squeeze my fingers together or squeeze my wrists it makes the pain better. Which is weird but that’s what happens. But I can’t exactly sit here and squeeze every joint. I don’t have enough hands, haha!
Does anyone have any advice for it? It’s far too hot to wear my compression stockings - I’ve been keeping my feet elevated a little bit instead. Is there anything else I can do?
Thank you all in advance
