Kathleen, as I've said before....I'm right there with you.
I was only able to work today because they let me work from home. My vertigo, double vision, blurry vision, nausea, etc, etc are completely OUT OF CONTROL. I have to be in a dark room with minimal noise or I feel like I'm going to upchuck.
Plus I'm in a lot of pain in my rib cage and upper back....hurts when I breathe deeply or move.
One thing that helps me is to talk to people on the Chronic Pain forum here on HealingWell. They deal with excruciating pain on a daily basis and can give you lots of tips on how to get through it without losing your mind. They are a good bunch of people, just like everyone here on the Lyme forum.
Does ice help? Or heat? Can you take a long hot bath? Do you have pain meds? Will your doctor prescribe a different med if your current meds aren't working on the pain?
I wish I could be of more help!!
Sending prayers and ((((hugs)))) your way......
