depends on the day if i over did it or not - mild fatigue as in before bed tired if you wanted you could go but you Its a dull ache like you had worked out too much the day before with itching burning tingling sensations in arms and feet and the slightest touch will set me swinging - that is a good day. Pain level is about a 6 or 7 on these days . A bad day is on top of what i described ona good day muscle spasms (like a charlie horse all over your body) the spasms are in multiple spots and for the fun of it if you move you trigger another spot. The spasms are so strong it feels like my muscles have decided my bones needed to come out now. I don't think theres a spot on the pain scale unless thers a rating of please kill me now make it stop and I will let you marry my first Born if you make it stop
. Thats just the pain i feel we aren't gonna add the other symptoms

Physical, Mental, and Emotional Pain are Much
TOO TOUGH to handle all at once.
That’s when EVERYTHING can go Wrong; and Nothing seems to go Right.

I’ve learned to “separate” each Pain above, so that
I can HANDLE IT, one Pain at A Time.

IT BECOMES EASIER EACH TIME! I begin to learn more about the particular pain, how often I have it, how long, and what works to alleviate it or even eradicate it!

Keep a Journal. Have pics, magazine cutouts, etc. on things that INSPIRE YOU!!!
Work your Journal.
You soon may find that your physical Pain is reduced as you ENJOY your Journal.

Find Joy, as you realize less Pain, by bringing peace and love to the things that you do.
