First of all, welcome to the family. You'll always find great info from some of the most wonderful people you've never met! LOL
Anyway, my answer to your question-"Where is your pain?" Where ISN'T my pain? Seriously, I hurt everywhere. I feel like my whole body is one giant bruise. My back, knees, hips, legs, hands, feet, head, and neck always hurt. More recently, I've been having "migraines" so bad that I feel like I'm about to die. Also, last year I broke my leg at work (long story) and lately I've been having severe pain in that leg, all the way down to my foot. I've been having strange swelling below the fracture site, too.
Basically, I'm a big old mess! Yesterday, I began physical therapy-but I really didn't do anything. I just met with my therapist and we went over my history and she gave me exercises to do at home. But, even though I didn't do anything physical-other than try to bend over and touch my toes and she bent my legs in order to see if I had pain in my hips, etc-I am in agony today. It scares me that just a little manipulation of my joints causes me that much pain.
OK, sorry to use your thread to vent. LOL-the longer you stick around, you'll realize I am one of the ramblers in the family! But, again, welcome to fibroland! I hope you enjoy the ride!
FINALLY dxd on 06/13/08
Vicodin, Neurontin, Ibuprofen for pain-which doesn't help, BTW
Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
Klonopin for anxiety (Guess what? Doesn't help!)
