I’m so sorry you’re in pain too. Whether yours is or isn’t as bad as mine doesn’t matter, to you it’s affecting your life and causing pain, so that’s the issue. I’m so sorry. People tend to forget that. I was in unbearable pain the other day and was on the way to my cancer treatment, I was literally think I could jump out the car door on the X-way and it would be all over. Don’t worry, is never cause others that kind of trauma, it’s just sometimes you can’t handle that kind of pain, and sitting in the car for an hour was more than I could bear. As we pulled in the hospital a worker passed by with a limp, my relative said to me, “see look how bad that poor person has it, they’re limping and they work. You just never know how much worse you could get”. I held in my tears thinking, maybe they are not in any pain at all? We just don’t know anyone’s story. I’m very stoic, had to be growing up(can tell by that comment). I just am getting to my ropes end.
I do know about polymyalgia, my friends spouse has it. I’m sorry. So many people suffer from so many diseases people know very little about. They were very blessed to have at least found a surrogate to carry their child.
My worst thing is no one cares enough to think all back issues are not the same. I’ve been damaged severely. My CSF was leaking out. My dura in that area was actually burned away, they had to create a new one w/ fat/fascia/stem cells and sew it on. The spinal headaches for 2 weeks were so horrid I couldn’t move. Now to know there’s blockage in my spine that won’t allow the CSF to flow freely is mine blowing. Arachnoiditis..on top of it all? I’ve haven’t accepted this yet. All they can to is offer drugs(yuk) or a pain pump. I suppose I’m so tired of meds the pain pump will be a relief.
Thanks for listening. I’m still in shock over it all. Bless you and please keep in touch lconroy826. I pray for us all. I hope someone listens.
