I am having a tough time and can't hold it in any longer. My appt for 10am for my upper body nerve testing was just rescheduled, normally not a problem but I work till 6am and have lost some much needed sleep to function for tonights 11.5 hr shift.
about a month now I have had severe pain in my feet including toes, heels (the whole darn thing!) that radiates up into my legs. I also have that awful burning pain in both my thighs where they are numb. It is so bad that it is almost unbearable to walk at times. It makes it difficult to work as I stand up for most of the shift. Finding out that other people want my position and are doing everything they can to make it hard on me, therefore I need to be a good actress when I am in such pain and my thinking process is wavering again and I just feel like giving up like I mean totally. Heck my hands get so swollen and hurt so much that it's hard to put those stupid gloves on and I won't go into heating up as it doesn't take much. I really try to stay calm and not let stress get to me BUT....also my back has felt kinda funny sometimes like it will tingle for awhile then go away. I am always dizzy or lightheaded so between that and the pain in walking and off balance I sometimes look like I have been drinking (oh I wish) hmmmmm maybe I should. I am also so very tired and blah blah blah can you tell my AD aren't doing their job right now.
I see my PCP this friday but not my Neuro until after my nerve test next Monday at which time they will schedule THAT appt. I guess I just needed to vent a little to someone who understands. Oh ya and that STUPID shot I have to do every other day is a killer as it stings so bad that my eyes actually tear and it's been 5 months now.
Ok I am finished. Thank you for listening I guess I just needed a hug . I'm going to sleep now as it is 9:21am here.
EVERY DAY I WAKE IS A NEW POSITIVE BEGINNING
