I was diagnosed seven years ago with Crohns Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, a Lupus Variant, Peripheral Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis. I also have had Migraines since I was 16, and Meneires Disease, (I probably spelled that wrong). I also have kidney stones in one of my kidneys. I was on 30 medications, gained 90 pounds and spent most of the time in the hospital with flares of one sort or another. Finally I said, NO MORE, I have had it. I lived in constant severe pain. The Lord was looking out for me because on one of my hospital visits, someone on staff made a mistake with my pain pump dosage and I was thrown into instant withdrawal. Well the results of that, put me in the behavorial health unit of the hospital were I spent almost three weeks detoxing from all those drugs, and going to therapy sessions.
I came out of the hospital on a blood pressure pill, folic acid and potassium pill, and a heart pill.. Well, I was doing okay for two weeks and then the severe pain returned, I was having flares again.
Someone suggested that I go see a Pain Management Specialist. That was the best thing that has ever happened to me.
Now three years later, I have severe back, hip and shoulder pain and have to have trigger point shots all the time and different kinds of epidherals. The doctor has been able to keep me pain free and that had been wonderful.
Now I am back in pain again with something called , mesenteric fat stranding in the pelvic area, and the lower right quadrant. I could have phelbitis they say, or even early stages of colon cancer. I am petrified to even go back to a doctor to find out what has to be done.
Does anyone know what this is?
