My sciatica is so bad that sometimes I need help getting out of my chair at work, but I'm embarassed to ask, so I just hold the pee as long as I can. Also, I have the bladder of a pregnant five year old, so I'm pretty much always in horrible pain and holding in pee when I'm working... I'm 28!!! And... my sex drive disappeared the second I finally figured out how to be in a relationship with a nice person who isn't emotionally abusive. YAY!!! My hair sure is pretty though!

My body apparently thinks I never need to have sex again, seeing as how my sex drive tanked with my second pregnancy and has not returned after delivering that baby two years ago. Thanks sooooooo much, body!

This happened to me, but without the excuse of a kid. My body just decided about a year or so ago that it didn't really feel like having sex. I can still have sex and do to keep my husband happy (about once a week, but currently it's been about 3 weeks), but I don't really get much out of it and can't even remember the last time I had an orgasm (several months, at least). It sucks. I thought mid/early 30s was supposed to be when the sex drive is highest. But nope, not for me. My sex drive was highest when I couldn't get any. Now I pretty much have sex on tap and my body's like, meh.


This, to a tee! After my second pregnancy, it all went down the tubes. That was 5 years ago! To add insult to injury, I had a high sex drive when I was miserable single and alone. My (now) hubby and I got together and I pretty much started having kids right away. Which means we only got a couple years together before the drive went away.

I also have indexandicon's problem of having to pee, like, constantly. It got progessively worse after I had kids. And despite all the complaining, I love my kids! It's just the being pregnant that destroyed my body.

ohhh indexandicon I feel your pain on the sciatic a thing.
I can't sit for more than a few minutes without being in excruciating pain (I have a 12x7" rib tattoo that took 6 hours and was a breeze compared to this)
and it doesn't even stop when I stand up or move around, it still hurts, but less.

unfortunately, literally all of my life requires sitting for extended periods of time. my work, my classes, etc. terrible timing to have a flare-up, body!

My brain fog has almost gone and the extreme fatigue only happens for 3-4 days a week now instead of 7, but dammit I ache all over. Even my feet ache!

I'm in pain pretty much all the time and nobody gives a damn, it sucks. I get such bad stomach pain and back pain that I can't stand up for long periods of time and practically live with a heat back over my stomach to ease it. I went through a long phase of not eating at all as a teen because it seemed to ease it slightly...but that wasn't worth it for the other health effects I got. And on top of that I spend a week a month in dire pain from my period, despite being on BC pills (they make it a LOT better, but it's still damn bad). And doctors really don't seem to care when I go to them, I get brushed off every single time.

Sometimes I doubt myself, I wonder if everyone else is in constant pain and I'm just a wimp, my husband says that's bull, but, I don't know...


Also no matter how good shoes/socks I wear my feet are odd shaped and I cannot walk far without getting nasty blisters/bleeding. I have taken to wearing only black socks as I ruin anything else.

Suddenly I have really bad acne. This has not been a problem for me in years. What gives?? I have been using Alba acne products to try to control it, but so far have not been very successful.

SAME. My face has completely erupted in the last few weeks. Every day there's at least one new cystic zit forming and they hurt like a mofo. I've been trying to calm it down with acne.org's BP, but it doesn't seem to be working

Neck pain, every day, for at least a couple weeks ago. I worry that all this ibuprofen is going to come back and bite me in the asparagus later.

Got a neck/shoulder pain that I can't quite locate so I'm covering the entire area in heat balm and it smells!

I got out of bed 15 mins earlier than usual and can already feel the effect its going to have on me.

8ball, I recognize your issues. I too have brain fog and I'm so fatigued constantly and I have neck/shoulder pains (they get better with yoga, but they're still there). I suspect it's because of my forked up sleeping pattern, my body just wakes me up too early and doesn't let me get back to sleep. I never feel well rested. It's so frustrating.

I've been feeling the exact same way lately.

I'm getting so fed up of being in pain all the damn time. I started getting really bad joint pain about 5 weeks ago (as opposed the the slightly irritating mild joint pain that's been going on since last October) and went to the doctor and made them to do tests this time (rather than telling me it's due to exercise and possibly arthritis but not to worry right now).

I've now had two rounds of blood tests and the results of this last one mean that I have to go for another appointment and more tests on tuesday - they can't tell me the actual result over the phone but I'm 90% sure that my ferratin levels and anaemia (plus the joint pain, depression (not a recent thing), anxiety (totally new and getting worse by the day), rash, and numbness / tingling in my feet and hands when I exercise) are pointing towards Coeliac disease.

On one hand I'm freaking out because bread and mock meats are my favourite ever foods and travelling around Japan next spring as a gluten free vegan is going to be a huge pain in the asparagus but on the other hand I just want them to work it out and fix me so that I'm not in pain anymore. I love working out and I've had to stop doing Body Pump, Boxercise and Spin classes now because my joints can't handle it and regular stuff like baking (my job) and typing hurt my wrist and finger joints.

Uch, sorry for the huge rant, I clearly needed to vent!

Really minor but starting at the beginning of september I had a hip muscle or tendon injury. I tried to work through it/didn't give enough time off until last week. Finally got that better mostly only to have my knee on the same side start flaring up a bit. And now I'm just sick. I haven't been able to get a good weight lifting workout in and it just makes me sad.

I have to preface mine with that I really have a pretty decent body - I'm not disabled/deformed, I'm considered reasonably attractive by my peers, and really, many of the things my body betrays me with are a result of me not taking care it.

That all being said, I have a couple issues. My back pinched something while I was moving boxes the other morning, and when I went back to moving that night, it got so bad I couldn't even stand. I have random red spots appearing all over my body. I thought they were bug bites, but they don't itch and there's a lot of them. I haven't had insurance since April, so I can't get it checked out.

The biggest way my body betrays me is my dick. I have a really hard time getting/staying hard outside of a relationship. Like, tweeker or whiskey dick hard time. I managed to find a cheap, bulk source of viagra, but it's pretty emasculating that I even need it at 31. Oh, and even that won't work if I'm exhausted. My dick isn't small, but it's certainly not large, either, and it's thinner at the base. I'm usually only good for one shot, and then not only does my sex drive disappear, but my drive to do anything goes. I don't want to see or be near anyone, I don't want to do anything, I don't want to exist.

I feel as though I've pulled multiple muscles, but I know I haven't. Walking is unusual today.

For the past 4-5 years I always get a serious cold right around midterms/when I have a lot of work to do. It's the worst.

I have all-over nerve pain that is yet undiagnosed. It's so frustrating to keep having to see different doctors and just hear about what it isn't. It's almost a year now.

In so many ways.. in so many ways..

My skin is incredibly dry right now. I eat plenty of oil. Oh and my scalp is returning to its teenage self - my scalp is flaky and my hair is falling out.

Did you drink water yesterday? A disproportionately large amount of sugar?

Yes and no. I have a bad cold and haven't slept or eaten well recently due to being on tour.

I get a hangover sometimes too even when I did not drink, and yeah it's usually because I didn't drink water the day before. :/ Bad Mars!

Welcome to winter dry skin and scalp! Almost overnight my scalp got incredibly flaky. Blegh. I love heat, but I hate how badly it dries me out! Also, I plucked way too many gray hairs out of my bangs this morning. They all seem to be up front there, where the world can see them. Jerks.
