Hello all, 
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 tongue .  I'm going to sleep now as it is 9:21am here.

Hey Carla

((((((HUGS))))))) I'm so sorry u'r having such a rotten time! Hang in there. I know it's sooo hard...u have a lot going on in so many different directions, but u can always come here and vent anytime u like and hopefully it'll at least be a release for u. Hopefully u'r appts will give u some clear directions and help. It's so frustrating and i know it's aggrivating that they rescheduled u'r appt...especially after making work arrangements to be there, but just hold on a little longer and it'll all work out for u. Come talk to us anytime u want...yes, we do understand and we'll be right here for u. Take care of u'rself and get that sleep u need. ;)

((((hugs)))) from me too Carla.  I'm sorry things got shuffled around for you and that you are having a rough time at work.  Try to hang on a little longer, hopefully the testing will lead to some direction for you.  Take care and rest all you can.  Thinking of you.
