I am new on this board, just joined the site the other day infact.
I have several things going on physically (job injury). One of them we do know for sure is an xray showed cervical degenerative arthritis and disc disease c6/c7. thats how the report worded it. It has been over two months now and i am still in extreme pain at times, other times, i am still in pain. It just depends what i am doing as to what part hurts. Example.
If i sit a certain way a different part of my neck hurts, almost all the time my head hurts. coming up the back an mostly on the right side. my right should hurts, arm, forearm , my wrist is sore and it sounds odd but my thumb, pointer finger, middle finger, part of my ring finger and my pinky,. the fingers feel weird. the thumb aches though.
I have been having issues different parts of my back. again it depends on what i am doing , standing, walking or sitting. My back is always hurting in some area. I am no wuss when it comes to pain. many surgeries etc thru my life. But dang it! it hurts. My left knee is wacho, it hurts sometimes, inside, but also on the back of the tigh, and back of the upper calf. I feel like i am falling apart. When i get in to much pain i start sweating...sweating!! I have had a hysterectomy and have used hormone patches for yrs so it isnt that. anytime i use my right arm, which it already feels so weak, it hurts , not so much when i do stuff but after, it just aches. inbetween my shoulder blades and sometimes the right side of my chest. oh jeeze i am falling apart ugh. I have read some on here and i know you all can understand where i am coming from. My dr wants to get me in with a pain dr, but my employer is saying no, they are saying they want me back to work, even if it is modified duty. How am i supposed to do anything when i cant sit, or stand for very long. I am so tired, physically drained. emotionally it is starting to takes its towl on me. I have to rely on family to help me out with things i should be able to. does anyone have any advice? do any of these symptoms sound familiaar or am i just nuts? what can i do? thanks for listening to me whine. i try not to talk about it to my family, i would think it gets old to them. would be nice to have different response when hubby asks me how i am feeling daily.
