I would like to reach out to others in pain....I am "new" to all this.....
:H Hello, and I am so glad to have found this forum.
Let me introduce myself. I am 57 years old, very very overweight (5 foot 4 and 250 pounds), and have had back pain recently that has brought me to tears, and is now so concerning me, that I am very worried for myself.
I saw an Orthopedics Doctor, and she is sending me for SNRI
tomorrow. Gosh, I hope that I get relief. Every day my functioning seems more and more restricted; the pain more and more disabling.
(My family has told me that my weight is a very bad aggravant to my pain. Why do things always get complicated by someone's weight -- did I do this to myself, I fear?) :??
I am having horrendous pain in my right buttock, my right thigh, my right leg. Sleeping is soooooo painful.
I am just "beginning" in this challenge -- in this journey.
I am scared. I feel so bad about the pain and about what this all is doing to me. My ambulation is limited more and more.
Gosh I feel bad.
I would love to hear how people are when they are first diagnosed, and when their symptoms first emerge. I feel so alone in all this.
Thanks so very very much.
Thanks for listening.
