I hear ya'.......I'm only 38---and shouldn't be experiencing this either! I went to the ER twice in June----b/c I thought I was having a heart attack (but, the pain was on the Right side)---and they checked me over---told me I was stressed and sent me home----told me to take Valium b/c I am a SAHM, have three young children.....Yeah....whatever!
I've been doing a bunch of research online----and Googled the following words:
brachial plexus (mainly in children or those injured in a car/motorcycle accident--not me, I guess)
And found some interesting sites...
(the one above I looked up b/c I kept telling my primary MD about feeling like I had 'stitches' in my right side--and they would travel around---"oh must be your GI tract"....)
If you go to the Home Page of that site listed above--it has some interesting items....maybe it can give someone some ideas about where the pain is--to help explain to your MDs?
The book above has some other interesting "places" you can have trigger pain----
Here is the homepage:
(SCROLL DOWN A WAYS TO SEE SOME OF THE "SYMPTOMS" THEY REVIEW)
I don't know anything about this book---but, looking at the different things I am experiencing--and looking at those "symptoms"/etc. in this book--it is interesting.......So, I just thought I would share this with anyone experiencing various pains--who may be interested....
I hate sitting around waiting to have my MD throw another pill at me---but for what? It's not working---so, I search the net....
I go to PT tonight for my evaluation (this is the second PT place in 7 months)---should be interesting what they "think" is going on..........
If anyone has read this book---has any comments on it---let me know.....I just may buy it.....we'll see!
Float---you can come and vent, cry or get angry too---that's what we are here for, right?! You too, Razzle--and anyone else who is experiencing this garbage.....LOL---
