Hi all my Spineys,
I have been for years on a search to get answers, for my constant pain.
I have a long list of specialist, and have had so many different diagnosis.
Now I am back to having lung issues, been thru so many more test. From pulmonary functions, labs have pages of things that I am allergic to. Waiting now on insurance to see if I can get an injection of xolair. It's very costly, the doc says it's the best med. for me since I have so many allergens in my lungs and body. It sucks all of the allergens out of you.
Due to so many times of having pneumonia I have a lot of scaring in my lungs. Also found a lot of nodules none of are cancer(thank God)the fungi they found need to grow from 8-10 wks before get results. I have bronchitis which is chronic. (hmm ya think I will get disability now). I have appointment next wk to go over results of sleep study.
So since my oxygen levels drop when I just walk I am on O2 all the time. I have found when I wake I no longer feel the extreme ache of pain thru out.
Yet I have been doing more of different type of exercises. I so miss the water exercises but until doc and I get to were I don't drop in levels I have to have o2 on all time. I tried and it's poss. to do water things just limited to the side of the pool.
I am wondering (after my babbling) do any of you have lack of oxygen, and can there be a link to oxygen and my yrs of pain.
My last mri was a sitting one shows my fusion in 06 is fine. and for now other discs are okay.
I have neuro, and rhuemo still believing I have fibro.
And I am borderline(said my neuro and emg)line neuropathy of legs.
Today just after making a crock pot of chicken n dumplings I am in such pain. I think it's the new exercises I have to do for the Copd. oh did I mention have early stages of that on top of asthma .
I was a social smoker, never did everyday but if we went out or drank a beer I smoked like a chimney. All tho don't drink but few times a yr. When I did I smoked. Now can't take the smell of cigs off my hubbies clothes. I just go into such coughing fit, with other things also. Can't have anything sprayed into the air.
Does anyone else have chronic pain and have O2 issues.
