I am dealing with arms and hands going numb and tingling right now. Headaches, chest pains, face feels hot, breasts burn, plus moderate osteoarthritis. I am almost 57, and I rarely post here, I just come on from time to time. Times like this, typing is difficult.
It's as if I sometimes even doubt what is wrong with me, it's just too hard for me to accept, I was always so vibraint, active and independant, right now my hubby is doing the grocery shopping. I still work full time, most days are a struggle to just get to my car in the morning. Once I am in the car, the worst is over, bath, hair, makeup, dressing. It's what I call "the ritual". I rarely leave the house other than for work these days. I am not the same woman as I was, I feel like I am in the body of a stranger, it's someone else's body.
I get injections whenever my rheumy say's enough time has passed. Plus, no matter what they say, getting old is not for the squimish.
I am glad you called your doctor honey. It's always to be safe, and sometimes it's good to have some blood work done when you are feeling this way.
