Back again and still trying to figure out where I belong on this great site.
I've posted before in panic/anxiety, RA issues, Kidney question and etc.
Here goes......I am totally sick and tired of being just that. Every day is something new or more of the same.
One step forward and 10 steps back. As I've written before, I do have anxiety/panic/depression issues and have had for a good 15 to 20 years.
Yesterday out of the clear blue, my jaw locked. Now that is scary. Was sore but okay after a few hours. (am in the process of extensive dental work for a new partial)............Sometime during the night (last night) I woke up with my jaws aching, sweating (or just hot) and a slight pain in chest.......not crushing, pressure, stabbing. Just enough to set off the anxiety. Probably about
5 minutes or less and I went back to sleep! (never said I was the smartest Apple around!)
This morning I just felt like crap.........nothing unusual there, especially in the mornings............the stomach, the back, the upper thighs and now the jaw.
Went to Church and as I walked in the darn jaw locked again! Not feeling good to start with, I thought about
leaving services, but did not. (figured if I was on my way out, what better place to be!)
Stopped at a drugstore on my way home..........walking in and fell flat on my face on the sidewalk....
attracting attention..........my knees are pretty beat up and I'm sure I will feel more sore spots tomorrow. (Can't wait)
I do have an appt. this week to see a RA. Now after last nights adventure I wonder if I should see a Cardiologist or Shrink.
I'm just blabbering here and I am sorry about
that. Think I lost sight of what I was really asking here..............between the anxiety, dental work, lower back pain with sore spot that goes right through to front, abdominal tenderness, Adrenal Adenoma, upper stomach, lower chest always feels funny.....I do have a Hiatal Hernia from way back, Extreme dry mouth causing me to lose teeth, skin cracking and the list goes on...............................am I nuts or just a mess? Is there hope for me or not? Would you be concerned about
the short episode last night or let it go?
Sorry so long and full of useless info............guess I am looking for some 'positive' thoughts.
