I'm still feeling awful since PT friday. Been awake since 4:30 from muscle spasms. Feels like someone is trying to pull my spinal cord out from the back of my head. ugh. Called Dr office and left a messg. I'm so tired.
PT said I'm losing function in my left arm cuz of the pinched nerve in my neck. Wonder if they'll ever actually DO something for me besides give me pain meds?
I am listing symptoms/test results cuz my Dr is still trying to figure out exactly what's going on with me. If any of this rings a bell with you, email me at daisyhen at msn dot com.

Yes, he called back. Told me to go tomorrow. They are 'hoping' it will help. grrrrrrrrrr Since when does PT heal a pinched nerve from artritis??? Good grief.

Oh, and oxycodone with lortab chasers hardly takes the edge off. I only been taking oxy for 4 weeks, so I'm not habituated either. *sigh*

I went. They wanted me to go to the ER. I said no, the pain killers they'd give me just make me more nauseous. I came home and she called to make sure I got here ok, cuz I can hardly drive. I can't hold my head up today worth a dam. I have no clue what to do anymore. I hurt so bad. The tears are running and so is my nose, but I'm not crying, if that makes any sense. I am such a mess. It's so degrading.

hey there,

i think by PT they want to try to move or manipulate the surrounding area to free that pinched nerve?  that & to strengthen the surrounding areas so less pressure is being put on the pinched nerve.

but that's a long process & it's not a gaurantee.

what about surgery?  has anyone discussed that option with you?

Well I went to er and they shot me with 60 mg toradol an hour and a half ago and it didn't do a stinking bit of good. :(
