I haven't been on here for a long time as I've been back to work and it had been not so bad. However, I've been flairing for the last three weeks. My knees feel numb and my legs hurt. I'm so physically drained at the end of the 8 hours that I come home at 2:30 and I'm in bed by 4:00p.m. I won't wake up until 5 a.m. to do it all over again.
Also I have degenerative disc disease of my lower back. At night I get restless leg so I'm on meds for that. I don't know how to explain this but my tailbone along with the restless leg hurts and it's almost the same as a panic attack because I feel my legs and my tailbone are "anxious" and I feel like running out of my skin. It's not like the normal panic attacks where "you" feel it in the chest. It's like it stems from my tailbone. I know that sounds really strange but it really is happening to me. Can anyone relate??
I haven't mentioned it to my rheumy because it sounds so stupid. How can a panic attack start out in the tailbone?
I hope someone can help me out here.
Thanks in advance. Patty
