  • I am so sorry that you are still having such awful pain, but glad that they allowed you to go home.

    I don't have fibromyalgia but I do have various tingling, pins and needles, pain and numbness in my hands, arms, shoulders, feet and legs. I was worried that the symptoms in my legs and feet meant that my lumbar spine was playing up again, after my lumbar fusion in March.

    Both my GP doctor and physiotherapist think that it could all be due to my cervical spine problems. I have had an MRI scan done, but am still waiting for the results.

    I hope that you get to see the neuro soon and that they will be able to tell you what is going on and have an idea of how to treat it.

    Feel better soon! >:D<
  • *HUGZ* Girlfriend!!! No fibro here (that I know of!) but Neuropathy - so unlike you, I at least know where my pain will be, vs yours being in one location or body wide depending on the day. A former co-worker had it, and that is sort of how she described it to me.

    I so wish that they could find a way to quell your pain, or knock it down bunches. Always here for support and *HUGZ* woman!! Again, Welcome back!! :)

  • Hi Mary,

    It stinks to hear that your pain is not being managed after that stay in the hospital. I hope you get to that neurologist soon, and you start to feel better. I am afraid that I can't offer ideas about what is happening with you. I just wanted to offer my support and let you know how much I care. I couldn't read your post without responding. Hang in there, Mary. I hope that knowing that your spiney friends are still sending you positive energy and lots of prayers might help you get through the next few weeks of waiting. I hope you get a break from this terrible pain. If not, please call your doctor. This level of pain you describe right after a work up just doesn't seem right at all. It is not as if you are recovering from surgery, and it is to be expected or something. They should try to help you more I would think while you go through "the maze" of doctors' appointments and tests. I really hope you get some help from the neurologist. In the meantime, if it continues this badly. please contact your doctor for more help. I am thinking of you, Mary!! ((((((MARY))))))

  • There's some more gentle hugz for you girlfriend!!! I've been posting my travel in my thread:

    We had a very close call (complete brake lock up type), and it was a good thing I was in the bed in the back - as the load for me didn't affect me - had I been sitting (hubby and I discussed this at length) in the passenger seat, I probably would have ended up in the ER - If I was that lucky! Whew - all is good though. :)

    I hope you are feeling better today. Man woman, you have been having such a time lately - I have been KEEPING you in my thoughts daily! Gentle *HUGZ*
