One sided pain
Does anyone here have problems on one side? My rheumatoid doctor was leaning toward a Fibro diagnosis for me. I still need to clear more tests. I am mainly impacted on my left side, though muscle twitces and spasms are bodywide. I am having a lot of GI problems. I get dizzy, lose visual acquity (on-and-off), and have tender spots that feel like bruises but there's no discoloration. Some of the tender spots are off the Fibro map, others are not. I have IBS, had that for years, but it's been really acting up. Lately, eating is so bothersome that I try to just nibble. The muscles on the left side of my arm are so sore, feels like someone hit me with a bat. I am not extra tired, never have been, but I am sore and stiff and it lasts most of the days.
I'm about to go back for another round of tests as we do the rule-out that we started last year.
I had neurotin but stopped it, thinking I should start taking it again. I do know that the Xanax seems to help me with pain, I take a super small dose because I don't want to be tired.
Anyway, curious if there's anyone else here that has one-sided problems. For me, it's my left side.
I met a woman on this board last year who did, I'd love to find her on this board again and hear from others. I'm going back to the see rheumatoid doctor soon
This wearing me out with anxiety and worry, been going on for more than a year now, really started with a bad series of colds the year before and I had a small window where I felt good last summer, which rapidly closed down on me on Nov. 4 last year and it's been hell since.
I did just get some epidural steriod shots for the neck pain but they did not work long. I am not doing that again, I can't anyway.
