I am in the midst of a flair (if not something worse). I have some pretty significant Thoracic disc protrusions with tears (I am thinking they are extruded now). About a month ago I tripped and fell to my knees. I didn't worry to much about the fall but looking back maybe I should have.
I started having more numbnes in my left upper leg/thigh. I mean it is now going completely numb. I am having worse pain around my thoracic cavity- right under my arms and around my breast and even wraped around the outside of my shoulders (like a noose is around me- I think they call it the ring of fire). It goes on pretty much 24/7. I stil have immense pain raidiating from the epi center that is dibilitating and grows worse after standing for a few minutes. The worse part is the "new" shooting pain going up my neck from under my arm pit.
My hands are both going completley numb at night and my feet feel like my shoes are too tight. I have lost about 7# in the last two weeks because I am constantly nauseated.
I know I sound like a major complainer but this is the only place I can vent. I see my PM this week but I feel like I need a new MRI and a trip to my NS. I think my appt is stil a month away. The car insurance hasn't paid a dime and I am now being forced by my health insurance to hire an attorney= not that I didn't want to, I just haven't found the right one (that would be one who would take my case)... I have about $20,000 in medical bills and don't even answer my phone any more. I am making payments each month but it is like throwing stones in a huge lake. How can I ask for more test when I owe so much?
I probably missed something but this is all I can stay awake for now.
