My Family,
 
I don't want to sound like a broken record but.....My leg is throbbing so much today.
 
I took my vicadin 10-600 and my cymbalta 60mg and I dont feel any different..
 
My pain clinic appt can't come soon enough for me on Tuesday.
 
It is raining today and im wondering if my leg is reacting to the weather. 
 
I only got 3 hours of sleep friday night.  Pain all the time.
 
Depression has raised his ugly head today. 
 
My back is now an issue.  I will tell the pm doc about that to.
 
Take Care
 
Betsey

Good morning Betsey!

I knew after visiting with you, that you were struggling quite a bit. It's quite all right to let a good old "Rant" out, and share with us here!

Were here to support, no matter what the "Rant" is about.

I'm guessing you have you're leg elevated right? If not, give that a try, and maybe an ice pack?

Take care, and I hear you on the appointments not getting there anytime too soon!

It's almost here! ...just a little longer.....don't you dare walk away with him not taking good aim at the pain issue.

I think you are probably right on with that!  Today is beyond bad on my end too.  If I could move to somewhere with consistant 80 degree weather and no humidity 24/7 I would do it. 
 
Hold tight till your appointment and take it easy!

Hello Betsy, I am sure the weather has a lot to do with your pain being worse than usual, I know where I am it is raining and 69, and even worse, the weekly weather says it will be this way until Wed.  I should have known, this past week was so beautiful, I mean sunny and mid 70s all week.  Seems we are going to pay for that this week.
 
So it looks like its time to just lay around rest, read, watch tv, or do what ever you do on days like this.  By that I dont just mean the weather, its about how much pain you are in.
 
Hoping you will feel better soon, and that doctors appt. will get here, its just a tough wait.  Sending out some good feelings your way hope they reach you.

Hi Betsey I'm so sorry to hear that you're hurting so bad. (((((((hugs)))))) I know what you mean about the weather. It does affect my pain, and it has been raining here too and is probably going to rain some more.

We are expecting rain here thru Wednesday too, unfortuantely.

I know the appointment can't come none too soon. I really hope that the dr. can get your pain under control really soon. It's so hard to be in so much pain.

You take care and I hope you feel better really soon.

love and lots of soft hugs

Betsey,
 
Hang in there and know I will be saying a prayer for you.  I know how the rain affects me as well and those days just stink.
 
Here's praying for better weather and lower pain days for Betsey Ross.

I'm certain the rain has made things worse for you. I hope tonight will be a better night for you. I have found that keeping a dehumidifier on all the time makes a major difference for me. When I'm at the camper, the air is only conditioned when the air conditioner is running and it turns on and off as the air cools. I find that I hurt so much more when I'm there because I can't get the humidity down enough.

Rest well with low pain!

Hi Betsey. I'm so sorry that you're so miserable with the pain. It sounds like you live close to me because it is raining here again today. I wish the rain would go away, so that we both could get some relief. I am here for you girl. I know where you're coming from. You take care.

love and lots of soft hugs
