Oh COME ON stupid stupid body! I'm sorry, I know I tend to talk here when I'm hurting but I also tend to read everyone's thoughts. I'm hurting and its killing me. Super myalgia in my arm. The doctor told me to go to the ER when I called about it on Monday at 4:00 pm. That's after trying to deal with it on my own all day. Now I've got these super myalgia pains in both my knees and in my right (dominant) arm. I didn't go to the ER 'cause every blasted time I go, they keep me for five days b/c of potassium levels or pain in my gut as well. It hurts so much though. I've tried staying calm. I've tried hot and cold. I've taken my pain meds and the Lyrica and the Cymbalta. Nothing's working.
Anyone know why these still can happen? I wasn't stressed out on Sunday. Matter of fact, I had a great day with my husband. But this pain isn't even starting to wane. Anyone have any advice even? I can't even focus on reading which I tend to do all the time when I'm hurting. I'm lying as much as possible but then I start rocking and massaging my arm til its swollen or I fling my arm around in the hopes of making it stop for just a few seconds. Please, anyone got advice. I've been trying to stay calm and have no added stress or stressors. Help.
