Not been on the forums for awhile been tired literally and figuratively. Having a really bad pain day today, maybe just need to vent. I have IBS/Ulcerative colitis and last year after a 2 week hosp. from a major UC flare, I started to get Chronic fatigue/Fibro type sensitivity--muscle/joint/body/head pain. I've had this low-grade fever for approx. three weeks now and this neck/back (to my shoulder blades) pain chronically for seven days. This weird anxiety is setting in, almost like paranoia--maybe I got something bad this time, like the pain in my back is cancer. My paranoia is actually based in reality, over ten years ago I suffered for approx. one and a half years with UC symptoms and my primary MD told me I had hemmhoids and needed to eat more fiber, even had roid surgery, before a fourth MD figured it out!--long story. Anyway, on all the UC/IBS meds, on an anti-depressant, vitamins, the works actually, and Oxy SR w/percocet for breakthrough pain (have to admit that I don't take the percocet as much as I could b/c I don't want my tolerance up and I work, but I'm really not worried about the pain meds, not my current point). I guess my point is that I want to call my MD (new primary, not the one who originally misdiagnosed me) tomarrow and tell him I just don't feel well (just started to tear up when I wrote those last five words), but I don't know what he can do for me? Listen? Is there really anything else to be done? Just saw him one month ago had full exam, although now that I think about it, had a slight fever then and a slightly swollen lymph node in my neck, which he wasn't too worried about. I also don't want to be labled as a complainer, which is lame of anyone to think about, but it's the reality with us chronic illness/pain patients. Well, that's it, simple right? Thanks for reading.
