I told my husband the same! 🙁
I have noticed VERY MUCH that old injuries (which I have a lot of!) hurt more now…well a change over the years. But I’ve been in THE MOST pain since I had my last child and during pregnancy even 🙁 she is 13 months old
After having a nervous breakdown at the beginning of December and being hospitalized for a week. I am now getting the medical care and treatment that I have been looking for!!!
I am driving 2 hours one way to get it, but I finally found the doc that is AWESOME and willing to listen and she is very thorough and I am very confident that I am in the right hands FINALLY!! My pain in now being managed by taking Nurotin…600mg a day…Tramadol…and a few other non narcotic meds…im glad that I’m not having to take Vicodin to live through the day..although I know If I had the Vicodin I wouldn’t feel much pain at all, but at least I can tollerate the pain most of the time now. I also am very aware that my emotions are linked to my pain…when I get upset my pain increases IMMENSELY so I try deep breathing and to stay calm..I know it will take so time to make this a reaction so I don’t even have to think about it…but it will be well worth it!!
Thank you all for sharing your story and giving your advice!! It’s so “nice” to know I’m not alone in this 🙂
My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to you all!!! <3
I was diagnosed with fibro June 29, 2011
I have had chronic pain for 14plus years…I’m losing grip in my hands.
I have not been diagnosed with ra but I think that’s what Im dealing with.
I have seen soo many doctors that I can hardly keep them all straight.
I was scheduled for a MRI but had to cancel appointment due to the fact my insurance will not cover all of it…it will cost me 650$ out of pocket…which due to all the co pays I had with all my appointments… I cannot afford to do this at this time.
I have pretty much given up on finding treatment…it seems all the doctors I’ve seen have not helped me..they have been very discouraging and make me feel like I’m crazy! One pain clinic told me to see a shrink and that there wasn’t anything g physically wrong with me…haha..they didn’t run any tests just a physical by touch…Wth?!?! It’s soooo frustrating as this has really made my life very difficult!!!
Would love to keep in touch
