Hello All, I am new here. I use to be on the Hepititus forum because my husband has Liver disease and is on the Liver transplant list.
I need some help. I have ddd, djd and a buldging disk in the L-4 and L-5. I can deal with this from time to time but when this crap hits me it's awefull! It is in my R upper leg (hip) It sting, burns,
stabs and gets numb! It is from my hip to my knee. The skin is very sensitive to the touch. If anyone touches it I just about jumb it gets that bad! I try to tough it out. The more I walk and stand the worse it gets. I am a caregiver of 25 years and have to lift a 90 year old Lady and she is dead weight!
Now the other stuff that hits me. The pain and stiffness in my body like my hands, feet and legs. I will get so stiff I can hardly walk. What in the world is this? I am puzzled and can't figure it out! Is it fibro or what? I don't have health Inc. I do go to my
Dr. only when it gets so bad I can't stand it any longer!
She gives me pain meds and muscle relaxers. I need to stop taking these epecially now since I am taking too much. Before all I needed was 1-2 a day now it's like 3-4...I don't wanna destroy my liver or be a drug addict! I lay on a heating bad,
I use an ice pack! Just don't know what to do! I am young.
I am 53 years young. I want to be active again! I hate all of this. My Right knee is playing out on me. I don't understand this. I wonder if its the long use of sweet-n-low I have been using since the 70's?
At times I will be ok, then all of the sudden this junk hits me!
And it gets worse!! The stabbing, pinching, stinging pain in my uppper thigh and hip wakes me up at night! Is this the sciatic
nerve from the L4 and L5?
I really hate this. My 2 Sister's have this. The oldest Sister
has MS. The youngest sister has Fibro and other things.
I was in several accidents many years ago, does that catch up with you? If anyone can help I would greatly appreicate it.
I have come here several times but chickened out..Welll I am desperate now.
