Been there , twice . First time was Gout , pain probably as bad as childbirth in that it hurts so bad that when it's gone you can't even remember how bad it was . It's come back twice and both times I was completely surprised how bad it hurt .
Second time was Atrial Fibrillation , no pain but I was having trouble breathing . My heart was pretty much just firing on two cylinders so as far as
fluid build up goes it was putting on a good congestive heart failure imitation .
I'm sorry that bad health is knocking you back a little and I hope it's something fixable . (it probably is) Good job on using your down-time
wisely , I don't want you to burn out . There's one or two mods I'm not sure about but you strike me as being a genuinely decent person and one
the reasons ATS stays such a good place .
Take care of yourself .
