Working From Home Challenges

As someone who lives with chronic pain, I know how frustrating and debilitating it can be. I recently went back to work and my joint pain has increased tenfold. It feels like there’s a tourniquet wrapped around my leg, cutting off circulation to the leg with osteonecrosis. This makes it difficult to move around and be active, which is essential for managing chronic pain.

I’m going back to basics and posting about things that have helped me get my pain under control in the past. I hope that sharing my experiences will help others who are struggling with chronic pain.

One of the things that has helped me the most is staying active. Even when it’s difficult to move around, I make sure to do some sort of activity every day. This helps keep my joints loose and my muscles strong. I also find that heat therapy can be very helpful in managing my pain. Cold never helped me much, in fact it makes my pain intensify.

I know that living with chronic pain can be extremely difficult, but I want people to know that there is hope. There are things that can be done to manage pain and live a relatively normal life. If you’re struggling, don’t give up. Reach out to me or another resource for support.

I have been doing some things the past couple weeks to help and I will fill you in on my next post.

Living with joint pain can be a challenge in itself, but throw in having factor five Leiden, MTHFR, and PAI-1 blood clot disorder and it can feel like an uphill battle. As someone who lives with all three disorders and works from home remotely, I know firsthand the challenges that come along with it.

Factor five Leiden is a genetic mutation that causes an increased risk of blood clots, which can lead to serious health complications.

MTHFR is another genetic mutation that affects the body’s ability to process folic acid, leading to potential health issues such as blood clots, stroke, and heart disease.

PAI-1 blood clot disorder increases the production of a protein that can lead to blood clots.

Working from home can seem like the perfect solution for someone with joint pain, as it allows for a more flexible work schedule and the ability to control your environment. However, it also means spending long hours sitting in front of a computer, which can increase the risk of blood clots.

To combat this, it’s important to take frequent breaks and stretch throughout the day. Investing in an ergonomic chair and setting up a workstation that is designed to minimize joint pain can also be helpful.

Additionally, it’s crucial to stay on top of medical appointments and medication regimens. Working from home can make it easy to neglect these important aspects of healthcare, but it’s essential to prioritize them to prevent further health complications.

Overall, living with joint pain and multiple blood clot disorders can be challenging, but taking steps to prioritize self-care.

Here are some foods that I eat and I avoid.

Firstly, it’s important to incorporate plenty of anti-inflammatory foods into your diet. These include fatty fish like salmon and tuna, as well as nuts and seeds. Leafy greens, berries, and colorful fruits and vegetables are also great choices.but with factor v , I limit my spinach and kale.

On the other hand, you should avoid or limit foods that are known to trigger inflammation, such as processed snacks and sweets, red meat, and fried foods. Dairy and gluten can also be problematic for some people with joint pain.

If you have a clotting disorder like factor five Leiden or PAI-1, it’s important to limit or avoid foods that are high in vitamin K, which promotes blood clotting. These include leafy greens like kale and spinach, as well as liver and certain oils.

Incorporating these dietary changes can make a big difference in managing joint pain and clotting disorders. But as always, be sure to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice and guidance.
