So I'm going to a pain management doctor now. I drove my paperwork over there today (or else they wouldn't make me an appointment, they call themselves a pain management clinic? nono ) and I got a call a half an hour later. This made me hopeful about getting in soon. Nope, April 2. It's like they enjoy torturing us while they get to pick their hours and have a nice cushy life. Hopefully when April rolls around, it will actually work for me, seeing as I feel 80 today. My stomach, by back and my shoulders hurt so much. I can barely lift myself up out of bed or off the floor. At least it's been a nice leasurely week at school. Just got done with midterms and now only have to suffer through seeing the scores.
I hope you're all having a nice, realitvely pain free day!

My,My,My.....ain't that the truth. :-)

I remember getting in to see ortho docs, rhueme, etc... and it would take 3mo., getting an appt. with my ob/gyn takes, seriously, at least 6 months. Boy, I love Los Angeles. :-) LOL!

Sounds like you need some good pain meds to go along with a nice long hot bath and TLC. I bet the midterms were not helping your symptoms much stress.

I had a moderately pain free was on the quiet side today. I think my cortisone injections I got in my hips yesterday are starting to work their magic. I guess tomorrow will be lots better. Plus it will be lots closer to the weekend. lol :-)

Goodnight, sleep well,
