I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes

It was always cold, no sunshine

That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads

Dee hon, how long outta work?? I had to have soo many foot surgs,,,, and in losing my job due to this,, and bad back,,, depression (had been in the car accident,, and my BFF was blaming HERSELF for it,,, it was NOT her fault,, as she got more depressed,, so did I),,,,, since 96.

I'd LOVE to go back,, but my health is just NOT holding up to it. SIGH ! So that's why I am a leader now,,,, esp on the 5% which takes MANY Hrs a day,,,,, cos it helps me to feel useful.

Dee,,,,, how did the tests work out????

My foolish foot,, grrr as you most likely aready read,,, is messing me UP !!! Grrr had I of lived in Colorado,, the area would be mostly healed,, and I'd probably getting ready for prosthesis ! Instead here in Maine,,, which most Dr's are NOT that great,, though we DO have a FEW,,,,, cos Maine is clearly a Welfare state,,,, 1 in 3 is on Maine Care (Medicaid) and or food stamps. the ecomony is finally improving, but you have the LOVERS OF LAZINESS such as an older brother,, who has it ALL FIGURED out,, that he needs to work x amount of months,, weeks,, days,, than he gets himself "laid off" or fired under an unfair reason (he usually tells his boss he's bipolar,, ,, and of course he's ALWAYS ALL OVER The place,, so the boss now knowing why,, weill lay him off,, he's NOT good for business),,,, and TA DA !! he's COLLECTING Full beneies again. NOT RIGHT I SAY !!! He just wants to sit around ALL DANG LONG and play with his toy models,, and puter. GRRRRR !! Why doesn't he consider that SOON it'll affect his all over SsI check at when he does retire,,, he's now 58,,,,he SHOULD be thinking of this ! I was sooo fortunate,,,,,,, I am on disbility from the car accident,,,,, so I get enough. That foolish driver did a NUMBER on us. I live well enough.

Plz let me know when they find out what is happening. I had testing done yrs ago,,,,, when this first started,,, said I was FINE at that time,,,,, but now? I "could" go to another Dr, but why bother?

The pain today was doable,, til I cleaned the fridge,,, was only on foot about 6 mins, but it would NOT stop pounding,, NO DOUBT my Dr would give me the DICKENS if he knew I was on it , but up til Mon when I went in,,, I was allowed to be,, and I do NOT have the cleaning I wanted done,, done,,, foolish infection ! That is THANKFULLY going down !

Sounds like A LOT !! I went to an allergist yrs ago,, when this was first happening,, they didn't find anything,, now the allergies are much worse,,,, to what??? I have NO CLUE other tha it was when the leaves first started to pop out,, and now,,, its all summer long also. Doubt if it's worth m while,,, to jave the tests done again.

How did the test come out? Where they able to find what's causing the allergies?

Today ,, last night,,, from changing the cast to another one,,, I was sickkkkk to my stomach and soooo much pain,,, I broke down and took 2 oxy's on top of the morphine,, which of course ALL DAY today ,,,, with myself at 5 forcing up,,, I slept most of the day. Izzy LOVES that,, she keeps sleepg on her Momma s belly,, an denjoyin gthe up and down movement as I breathe. SILLY GA L!! I also have on the AC,, its kinda cold in here,, so she also wanted to be WARMER,,,,, I can simply NOT do the heat unless I am outside,, than I WANT IT !

Todays pain level,,, with feeling sick,, from the meds,, for the leg,,, was about a 7,,, than down to a 3,, and now my back from sitting up for about 1/2 hr,, is climbing rapidly,, so nighters my friend !

the bed sore it'self,, is about a 5,, it's clearly noticeable,, but it is NOt broken open ,, and I am doing ALL the Dr said to KEEP IT FROM DOING SO !!! or it may be one that goes from under the skin,, since it's a bruise,,, and doesn't yet,, til it's kinda late,, break thru. I HOPE with the cream she told me to get (Diaper barrier cream,, I just got detinex) and it's WORKING for it keeps the area,, from "sticking" to the pants I wear,,, so as I move around,, it's not so hard on the skin. WHO WOULD OF THOUGHT that'd be a CONVERSATION for a 55 yr old??? OH MAN !

moving around DOES help !! I was at a 6,,, than I sat up for a few minutes (AM NOT supposed to,,, am SUPPOSED to have my foot UP at all times) but with the pain,,,, of my back,,, I HAVE to at times,, sit up for a little bit, but my Dr wants me to lay flat,,, so the circulation is very good. Once I sat up for a few,,, the pain went down to a 2 !! WOOHOOO !!

HI Elizabeth and Dee,,,,

Elizabeth, plz let us know what's happening with the qualifying for the new place,, how it works all works out,,, I hope for the bestest !!! Also let us know about the meds,,, if you were able to get them. Because in Maine,,, there are sooo many on narc's,, if we go off them,, we will NOT be put back on them,, cos it shows " you do not need them" which of course is FOOLISH as ever,, some like to see if they are better by going off and trying that, but than to try to go back on,, and of course they DO NOT tell you this,, when you state you'd like to try. YO !!!

Dee,,,, I hope it'll work out hon. U've been thru so much.

Today has been an aweful day,, which goes back to last week,,, when I had to stop swimming, my neck was hurting to much,,, strange cos in the water u are buoyant. I saw my back Dr on Mon,,,, didn't help my neck. my foot has also been hurting so much,,, so between the 2 of them,, I've had quie the headache. I've taken the Tylenol,, Tylenol for arthritis,,, the morphine,,,, and still it's just to much. OH I Am SO GLAD I just wrote this to you !!! I had FORGETTEN we made a change in meds,, last Weds !! NO WONDER I am hurting so much !! I am no longer on a muscle relaxer !!!! I can email the Dr to get on one,,, my ins was refusing to fill the one I'd been on for YRS !! I HATE THAT !

Thanks for the information! I was going to ask for a narcotics prescription again, when I next saw my new doctor - not to use every day, just when the pain is too much - but I'm going to research pain patches and ask him about that as an alternative.

Monday and Tuesday I had a LOT to do physically; so I've been working in spurts, small blocks of time with restful activity (like Sparking) in between. I've also taken extra doses of OTC painkillers, with another planned for later... it's going to be a late night!

However, the change is noticeable, so I'm focused on how happy DH - and me too! - will be with the progress I'm making, instead of how tired or sore I am. Our home inspection was postponed until June 11th, so I'm trying to unpack and organize more of our stuff.

Normally at this point, at this pain level (#8), I'd lay down for the night; but I am SO revved up psychologically, I don't want to stop! Wish us luck today: the Dialysis Center has to inspect our new home, to ensure DH has the right conditions to do his dialysis here.

Shal,, keep coming back,,,, we all know what it is like,,, and who knows what we may gain from each other !!

Elizabeth, I am not sure what Dee uses,, I was using a "lodocaine" patch,,, it helped out my back a lot,,, best of all since ur concerned about the kidney's,,, it's something you can use for a bit, or the 12 hrs its designed to be used,, in order to keep the pain steady, but perhaps using for a lesser amount of time (or not at night) may help you out??? I know we are now checking me for kidney disease (one of my tests came back,,, and it was at a -20,,, when the normal is 0 to 78. So yeah,, we need to figure out what's happening. I almost do not care,,, I can't live my life in pain, and not moving at all again,,, yrs ago,, I had spent months upon months in bed,,, doing not a thing. I do NOT wanna go back to that,, it was b4 I got my power chair. I wish you the best hon,, there does have to be "that balance" and it seems most of us are working on finding it. I think I have ,, but it's meant tracking everything,, daily for months to do so.

today I sat up a lot longer than normal,, and also this AM had deep tissue work done ,,, (its like a deep tissue massage,,, and also he dwells upon my neck, which is hurting now quite bad),,,, I need to find some support for when I am on the couch,, so I can have my head supported,,, I have scoliosis which in, my neck sticks out quite a bit from the rest of my body,, THANKS Daddy !! But, he also hurts from this awefully,, only he hasn't had any treatment for it,, he's just "toughed it out". UGHErS Dad !

My injuries result in a Catch-22 of NOT moving is less pain, but not moving enough leads to MORE pain. When I used the wheelchair, I could sink into the seat like a cocoon and finally finally have relief; however, being human, I DID have to get up at some point, and then I'd hurt even worse for having been still for too long.

I have to balance the not enough with too much activity, and the amounts of each change all the time, depending on sleep, weather, stress, etc... It's a balancing act I'm NOT good at, tending to do too much one day and not enough the next. However, when I AM "overly" active, the satisfaction is worth the physical effects!

Today I hardly thought about my pain - the usual aches and soreness, now worsening because it's the end of my day - because today was relaxing and fun, but also some work done too... When I deal with how I feel physically, I look at the whole picture - my entire situation at that time - to see what I can change that will help.

Can you tell me about "pain patches"? Are they prescription? I've heard of morphine patches, but I'm allergic to morphine; do you use something else? Maybe using a pain patch will be better than taking pills while I work to qualify to be a kidney donor; that's why I weaned off all narcotics and cut my use of OTC painkillers too.

However, the increased pain is keeping me from exercising as much as I could WITH the proper medication - again, a Catch-22! Perhaps using a pain patch would give me a targeted relief, without sending strong medications through my bloodstream, which then requires my kidneys and liver to clean up what remains.

I feel better just thinking there's a better option!!! emoticon

Thank you for the welcome Diane. I walk around the house too :). I do tend to over do and that is a lot of my frustration but we are warriors, keep on choogin !

While I understand DRs being "kind" I hold on to the thought that any mobility we can hold on to is a feather in our cap. :)

HI Shal !!

I had a Dr tell me "Exercise is bad". I just laughed ! For I also have spondythlosis,,, and though another Dr told me "you will NEVER get out of ur wheelchair, so STOP trying so hard. All ur doing is frustrating urself". I am sure she meant that to be kind. I day I started with a few steps,, wobbly at that,, and holding onto a rail. Now I can walk woobly , but still,,, can do so around my place,, or if going outside to a car,, can also do that, with 2 trekking sticks.

I LOVE the yoga,, today my lower back (of course) and left shoulder from the scoliosis was also hurting. So I got down on the mat,,, and did some light yoga,,, than I felt so much better !! Can use it again !! And just may do so ! That way I'll sleep so much better.

WELCOME SHAL to the group !

DIANEDOESSMILES You are absolutely right.. I have lumbar spinal stenosis between L4 &L5 compounded with Spondylolisthesis, this is where the vertebrae move back and forth. decimated disc in that area and then the disc above this is bulging.Problems in the hip areas that were not investigated sufficiently. So lots of sciatica pain, weakness and mobility loss from just above the hips down.

Surgery was recommended, fusion of the spine, but giving only a 35-50 percent chance of any relief, surgeon said it would not take care of all the pain and that would diminish over a 5 yr period, this just did not seem a viable option.

I have been training my American bulldog to be my mobility dog, she helps with anything from getting me up and down stairs to moving the wheel chair when we take walks.I also do Callanetics during good moments in the day.. lots of stretching and strength exercises on the mat.. helps with support and ultimately posture.

My Dr looks at me like I am nuts when I tell her I try to exercise, her words are do what you can but try to to aggravate... moving aggravates :) Its very aggravating to me as I have always been a very active person.. learning to find ways around this limitation while enjoying life is what it is all about. :)

Make every day special, enjoy life, choose to be positive!

I have to catch up with the posts tomorrow... I want to hear how it's going for everyone!

For me, my hands are giving me problems, especially my right hand. The doctor suggested a strong brace to wear at night, to make sure I'm not folding or twisting my wrist while I'm sleeping, and that's helped the burning and cramping. However, I'm still losing function very quickly - I think it's because I'm trying to do more, and it's pushing my limits.

I'm right-handed, so it's a real pain in all ways! My solution has been to start using my left hand as much as possible. I'm changing my natural instinct to reach out with my right hand, and use my left to do all kinds of every day tasks. Working the computer mouse is one task that I've been able to adapt to very quickly, although not so much on the laptop.

"See" you all soon! emoticon emoticon

Hi Shalindra!

So sorry the pain. Sometimes one wonders if wakin up that day was a good ixdea. Do you mind stating what the pain is from? ////u do not have to if it at all makes u uncomfy. I have 4 illnesses of my neck, along w/ bad feet,,,on the 16th going for surg number 18. sigh.

Not sure whaat u do for exercise,,,,if u can.

A number of us have realized how much exercise with our docs approval helps us out. For instance I both swim and do light toga. This has helped out a lot withn the back and shoulder pain.

Hello hello... pain was kicking today, not sure why, it was beautiful outside.... but we got a short walk in early.. mostly sat around today and played LOTRO (Lord of the Rings online) I did not let myself eat when my pain was spiking today.. I noticed I do this.. I guess because its so stressful.. so.. I just went in game and killed some orcs....

Hope everyone had a great day!

CHeri, Dee,, we have had POURING rain the past 2 days. I am not usually bothered by the "weather" though I can easily predict how much snow we will get ,, within 24 hrs of it falling,, and I am almost about an inch off either way. My GD thought this was sooo funny when she was in HS,, as did her friends who'd go up to her say "Did your grandmother say we are school OFF tomorrow"? LOL It was quite funny to her and them,, just how much more so I am accurate than the foolish weathermen who do not have arthritis as I do. :)

LadyR,,,,Are you able to work out the pain in ur lf flank? not sure if you do any yoga or pilates as Cheri does (for arthritis) ,,, I know how much the yoga helps me.

I recently also bought a mat for the bed, which has both heating and massage in it,, fits from my neck to my feet ! Ahhhhh !! Since having this,,, my pain level has gone, way, way down. As long as I do not sit up for long. After the surg,,, I am hoping to go on beyond the beginners yoga,,, if they do not of course take the big toe,,,, if they end up doing that,,, long term or not,, I'll just have to relearn how to stand up from the mat on the floor,, and that may take a bit. I am practing now,, by putting that foot ,, way out in front of the other,, and pushing up,, for that "just in case" though I think this is really down the line,, between 6 months to 2 yrs. (that's what I am hoping any hows !)

I am having surg on my big toe (Left) a week from Mon (16th) getting in a bunch of screws and plates,, this is a "last ditch" effort,, if anything goes wrong during the surg,, or afterwards,, such as infection, or ANY pain from then til onward,, off it comes. the toe next to it,, has already had a partical amputation,,, to me,, it's not depressing. I used to be severely depressed,, during that time,,, I prayed that I'd take ANYTHING for physical pain (God does not do this, but it was just to say how much my heart hurt) I'd like to get of the mental distress,, which we did find a med for ,,,, an MAOI (Nardil) and I've been on it now for about 10ish??? yrs,,,, I think?? Maybe longer,, it's been so long I can't remember, but the world is bright and easy to handle again. Thankfully !!!

Sides I believe it's temporary,, eventually one way or another after death,, or whenever,,, all things come back. :) Even if I do lose it,,,, I already wear shoes made with otheopedic pads in them,, which are made exactly for my feet,, so I am guessing they can even out my walk,,, than once finally the left foot is OK,,, if it is,,, than we can start to work on the right foot,, which I have a few bones out of place.

I DO NoT LKE FEET !

Today I coped with my life by first going on a half hour walk (0.30 miles)lying on the sofa, sorting magazines that came in this week and then napping between 5-7pm and I will head back to bed at 10 watch an hour of TV and likely go to sleep unless the pain flares. All of this is made at all possible by the morphine equivalency of 510 mg. Without the long acting drugs, I would be long gone.
I won't be on much more for this since everyday is mainly the same. Likely I will only appear if things get worse and I need someone to get me to hold on for just one more day or if I can offer support.

My lower back is killing my, have pain going down my butt and down my right leg, I also have uncontrollable leg tremors today so walking is hard. I can usually sit on the heating pad and it will help but not today, tried stretching its not working either. On a scale from 1-10 my pain is at an 8 and am hoping that it won't go higher than that. I am just miserable, I tend to eat when I am like this so I had some celery and peanut butter.

I agree Cheri,, for tonight I was in quite a bit of pain,, level between 0 and 10,, it was about a 6 to 7,,, and I needed to do something fast !!

So got down my knees,, than behindey position,, and started to do some moves with yoga,,,, that helped out soo much. Tonight I finally ,, I ve been working at this for 2 months,, able to put my foot up to my nose and also to bend my head to my knees.

HOWEVER by working so hard on that,, my back started to hurt again,, quite a bit,, so than I stood up on my feet (they are very unsteady thanks to the neuropathy) and lowered my head ,, back bent down,, so I was just hanging over,, and moved back and forth sowlyl I needed to keep my hands ready in case of the oh yeah,, ever presence of faling,,, it's so hard to stay standing, but tonight I DID ! SO HAPPY !

Yesterday was an unexpectedly emotional day - conflicts with DH, very unusual for us - and by early evening, my energy and motivation were exhausted. I felt like I could barely walk, aches everywhere, but it wasn't physical pain, per se.

I had taken extra Tylenol and ibuprofen, but the emotional stress overpowered the physical effects. My solution was to go to bed early (7pm), and I fell right to sleep. I woke up during the night, and got up, still feeling shaky but better.

I wrote out my feelings in my journal, about what happened and how I reacted, especially food-wise. I finally felt more in control emotionally, and went back to sleep. I slept 14 hours total - that's indicative of how drained I was yesterday.

Today has been far better both physically and emotionally, and I was able to be more active with just my regular meds. DH and I had talked out what had happened; today was calmer, and he was more careful with his attitude and behavior.

My day didn't really start until 3pm, so I've only been awake and up for seven hours. I don't know how I'll feel later, but now I'm tired and sweaty and beginning to ache in my neck and shoulders - that's the cleaning and dishes I did this evening.

I also cooked a hot meal for Dinner - eggplant Parmesan from scratch - THAT rarely happens! I came online to finish my food tracker and check my emails; but my next step to ease the aches (about a 5) is to take a strong shower!

I think this is a brilliant idea because I think only those of us who live with extreme pain can really know what it is like.
