Very nervous about next doctor's appointment. Almost in tears.

    Sounds like you've got a plan and moving in the right direction now. Continue to investigate and do your research, we must be our own advocate for our health and well being. Your latest post sounds much more positive, it's nice to read that. Have patience and you can work through anything, it isn't always easy but the rewards are worth it.
    Best wishes to you and your family.

    My doctor said everybody has a threshhold where the body can no longer cope with pain and one can pass/black out. He said it becomes a safety issue. Today in a meeting, things got fuzzy and someone said I was losing my balance. I have had to pull the car over before in similar situations.

    "laying in bed with my feet shaking and groaning, trying to breathe". ? I really do not understand why you are not an 'in patient' person. This is a call 911 thing.

    At best, the ER will take a look, but more often than not provide anything special.
    The time for the ER is when the situation is really an emergency.

    I am going to have a talk with my doctor about going back on opiates. Preferably extended release. I need to have a quality of life back. I am useless right now with pain. Work, family and passions have all taken a back seat to pain and finding ways to cope.

    Let us know what they say boardn, good luck
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
