I find myself in an odd predicament My pain is spiking for a little over a week with new, troubling "sensation" in my thoracic area. It is a "pushing out" sensation. It lasts about an hour or so, 3 to 4 times per day. When it is "over / stopped" the area of "pushing" is very fatigued. Tender and sore. Strange to say the least. Of course, I do not want to see anyone until January.... Maybe I should make a log of it. Maybe I should put my big kid panties on and just call them.. It seem the reasons to contact them keep adding up. Pain increase, odd sensations, numbness. Frustrating.
To add insult to injury I have been having tetanic contractions (tetany) again. My throat feels like I am crying and of course the 2 hour long stretches of random muscle groups contracting is annoying. I do however see the endocrinologist in a few weeks so that isn't a big deal. But, I know when I feel the "contractions" he fusses over me and wants to know why I didn't call and tell him.
My hearing and vision doesn't "seem" to be worsening this last week. Down to 3 to 4 high pitched ringing tones in my ears but thankful I am finally accustomed to the new tone that came a few weeks ago. Also, my new "grey areas" and "spots" I am finally becoming accustomed to that as well.
On a side note I went shopping the other day and while I was trying on new clothing I noticed my hip is much higher than it was. No increase in rotation to the rear that I can see... But it is defiantly higher. I also have another small fold of skin forming on my right side while standing. Used to be just two folds. I have had people tell me my deformity looked like it was getting worse (PT, Spine Spec, GP and social friends) for a couple of weeks (okay for a month ). I just couldn't "see" the difference myself. Well, up until I was looking in the mirror with new clothing on. Funny how I never seem to notice thing with my own body until I am trying on new clothes, looking at new x rays or looking at a picture of myself. So very strange.
This week is going to be busy so I hope I can push through the pain and discomfort of everything going on with my body. I have to decorate the inside of the house and begin making white chocolate treats. I start out with solid chocolate treats because they can be frozen. I am hoping on getting through at the very least 8.75 to 10.25 Lbs of white & light blue "speckled" chocolate snow flakes.
Thats about it in my neck of the woods!
