Hi everyone!
Sorry for not participating lately, I have been sick and busy, but at least I still have my job smilewinkgrin . I  have been having some strange issues the past couple of days, and was just wondering if anyone else has exp this.  Yesterday morning when I woke up and went to get out of bed I had to sit right back down because I couldn't feel my legs..they were rubber and I almost fell into the wall. So I waited a little bit and stretched some and about 10 min later I could get out of bed.  Throughout that morning I had the same rubber feeling on top of my normal joint pain (hips, knees, ankles), and my hands and feet kept going pins and needles on me and going numb smhair .  At about 1130am I started to get this horrible tearing pain on the side of my chest and going into my back. After about 45 min of this, I left work and went to the ER. They took an x-ray (had me on a heart  thingy) and some blood work and it came back normal, of course lol. The doctor said that it's most likely inflamation of the tissue between my ribs, and the spasms are whats causing the nasty pain. Soooo he gave me some meds to help and sent me on my way. Well same thing happened again this morning, all today with the pins and needles and things going numb... I am going to make an appointment with my rheumy for a follow up, but I wanted to see if any one has had a smiliar issue.

nope never had this happen to me, I just wanted you to know we are "listening". Hopefully someone will come along who can help. It sounds scary to me and I would make sure the rheumy's office makes it an emergnacy apointment.
