Yep, I am now on crutches very smart of me, I have too say. redface How you ask? Wel I really don't know what I did, I was going in to a dressing room to try on a dress and then I was almost screaming in pain I could not stand up on my right knee. I left it for an hour wondering if it was a fms thing you never know.
The er had a doctor who needed to go back too school.What is Fibro? same dumb question the nurse asked me, the same dumb question they asked me when I had the xray.
Nothing they could find wrong even all the soft tissue damage was ruled out.
Then they blew it in my eyes they put a pressure type ting on that leg by the time they had finished I was screaming in pain not from where I had hurt my leg but the rest of the leg. I got up told them "I HAD COME THERE FOR HELP NOT TO BE MADE WORSE" nono
well they sudendely wanted to hel[, too little too late as far as I was concerned one nurse came over and said to me "Here are the pain killers if you go home you can't have it"
My words where "I told you I did not want pain killers just to find out what I have done to my leg" Well she got in a huff and walked of sayiing "I seem to be making things worse" and she left. By this time my knee was starting to hurt less. And I asked a nurse who understood where I was coming from what was in the drug that had been offered too me. She told me if I had off taken the tablet I would off gone into hospital very sick from that tablet. They had a copy off all my files from years ago and it was marked in there also when they admitted me they wrote it all down and I was wearing a ? that told them I had allergies. After t hey gave me crutches and let me leave. They need to have a talk to the doctors about listening to what people tel them i know my body, here I was telling them I did not want hard drugs and one nurse was convinced I was only there to get my hands on those drugs.

I guess we need to pray for the medical people... they make mistakes, too. Hope you're doing better. Remember to walk on your palms with crutches, not try to make your armpits support you. If you do the armpit thing you will put your back out big time.
