Tonight has been a living hell, had to rush my mom to the ER(6 pm) after some food got lodged in her throat.Thankfully, she could breathe and only minor damage to her throat the piece of meat dislodged finally an hour ago(3 am).

Around 1 am, I awoke from a stress nap to a bizarre warm feeling,no fever oddly, in the worst pain over most of my body.My chest/right rib area hurt so bad that breathing was a chore.My middle back felt like fire ants were walking over me, calves tightened and ready to charley horse with any wrong move.My neck/shoulder feel like after a heavy duty weight lifting session worn out.This new fatigue was like life was being sucked out of me, I just had no desire to even move.Ironic, that under a stressful night my body just wanted to shutdown so badly.

My depression/anxiety are not helping matters either :''(

Urgh!!!--Not to mention 3 canker sores adding to my pain.

My pain meds are not cutting through the pain either :''(


  • You sound like you have been through it!! I hate it when a flare is so bad that nothing helps at all. And although canker sours are technically minor, they aren't when your entire body is wracked with pain!

    I hope some rest can get you back to an even keel - take it easy!!

  • Thank you Cheri,

    I am just anticipating my dec 11 Rheumy visit hopefully my research will aid him in understanding my pain and the need for closure.Then maybe I can get back on track and PM will be next my meds are not cutting it anymore.
