Susi Im sorry you feel so bad, I am used to numbness and pins and needles feeling in my lower extremites, but it is not like you described. I have a freind though that suffers with that, she will go with nothing on to feel better. Occasionaly at night i might have an article of clothes really bother me and have to take it off.
Today has been an itchy day for me but it doesnt hurt, its not like what you describe, I hope it passes and your back to yourslef again
Like Sherrine said, "Fibro is really weird!" It's weird how we all react to it, how we deal with it, and how we treat it. It's weird because everyone seems to have to deal with their own weird problems and issues. And with me, I'm just weird, anyway.
But, yes, I have a horrible skin sensitivity-especially on the leg I broke over a year ago. I can barely run my hand over that leg without screaming. Actually, today my PT accidentally was giving me a friendly pat and she did it on that leg and I screamed and started crying. I think I freaked her out because I usually put on this fake happy front (can't let people know how I really feel-but that's another can of worms). But, when she touched that leg, I reacted before I could think, and I really showed my true colors-that I am SO painful, and some days (like today) I just can't deal with it.
BTW-sorry for using your thread to vent. I'm just under so much stress (I know, we all are) and I'm SO painful.
Anyway, I forgot to ask. How is your dog? I hope everything is going well. My best wishes to you and your beloved boxer!
Vent all you want! When others vent it makes me not feel so bad to do so when the need strikes. :)
My Boxer is doing well despite having cancer, heart issues and some other things. We are waiting to get a 2nd opinion from another oncologist at Ohio State University on the 22nd of this month. The first one we visited with wanted us to jump right into chemo......when three years prior (first diagnosed) this same oncologist told us that her type of cancer doesn't respond well to chemo!
It's all a blur to me and I am just trying to take one day at a time until I can make a decision as to what to do for her. She doesn't know she is sick and we have decided NOT to tell her. She loves life and wakes up every day with a smile and a butt wiggle that continues until her head hits the pillow each night. She is the love of my life and knowing what is in store for her on this journey is breaking my heart. I am in pain overload due in large part to the stress associated with her condition. But she is worth it and I would suffer for eternity if it meant that she didn't have to.
