Hey Susie keep your chin up...I know it is easier said then done. Actually about
10 years ago about
2 inches of the surface of my side went numb. Left side right over my hip bone. Never came back. I must have had some nerve damage. I told my doctor don't bother with a brain scan, nothing there to see
BTW...I do the ambien thing, xanx thing, nexium thing, and doxepin. And a few other goodies besides the UC crap...Hey after 40 years of UC you can get pretty well wiped out...Obviously I don't have to tell YOU...
One of these days I'll tell you about
the trip I made to the hospital( 15 years ago) after I took a dilaudid prescribed by a neurologist...My wife still talks about
it..I was convinced my family were hiding in the bushes of the hospital..It only gets better from there..
Anyway good luck your fellow UCers will be thinking about
you. Keep us updated...
