Hi everyone. I hope you are having a great Sunday. Positive thinking right? Which by the way I am about plum out of.
I have numerous health issues. I have Lupus and a gazillion other things that go with that. Then there is my back. Besides the 5 bulging discs, I have spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease and a bone that has moved forward.
After being taken out by ambulance 3 times this past Nov. my burning/pain when sitting and standing has been terrible. When I saw the doctor on Thurs. he told me this could be my Tarlov cyst???????????????????? This showed on the MRI in Nov. and no-one mentioned it. Now I am waiting for the neurosurgeon to call me for an appt.
Anyone else have this?
ANY suggestions for relief? It hurts to sit, or to stand or to really walk for that matter.
Short of giving up, what CAN I do?
I am already a chronic pain patient so I have pain meds on board daily.
My rheumy got terribly sick so my GP took over untl the new doctor comes on board in August. And thank GOD he was willing to keep prescribing for me.
Thanks so much. I am sad, cry much of the time and feeling quite disgusted!
I am only 56....so what lies ahead.
I really would take antidepressants but I am allergic to them all.
I don't have clinical depression but I do get situational depression. I am worn the hec down
