Just an update

just wanted to tell everyone that I prayed about my stress and concerns, and I feel that a miracle may be coming my way financially. Hopefully that will ease up some stress and maybe ease up some of my symptoms, which would be a Godsend to me. I am going back to my Neurologist on the 13th and an orthopedic surgeon for my neck and shoulders on the 16th. I also found a public pool that has a theraputic spa that I visit once a week. All my trigger points get a marvelous massage and even though it makes me sore for a few days I am able to get a little water exercise in too. I'm starting to feel a little better than just stagnating in the bed like I have been. I can't swim yet for one of my problems is with my shoulders, but I can float and relax along with the massage. Gentle hugs to all.

Re: Just an update

That's awesome! I'm so glad to hear how positive you sound. I am a strong believer in the power of prayer. Our finances are really bad as well and we have a daughter with a drug problem that stresses out our entire family until we're biting each others heads off. Sometimes I literally cannot get out of bed. So I know where young coming from. I had my neck operated on in March. I haven't had significant relief. I know probably 10-12 people who had this done and half it worked,half needed a second surgery. Of that half I'd say half of them finally got relief. So its something to really think about and research your doc! Best of luck with everything. Have a nice weekend!

Re: Just an update

Yeah ree I'm not big on the surgery thing myself, that's why I've been seeing a chiropractor since the wreck. He has seemed to fix alot of the initial pain from the pinched nerves, but now I dealing with some shoulder and neck pain with limited mobility in my neck and shoulder during some movements. Of course the wreck trauma made the fibro flare I was in alot more worse than it was. I think the fibro may even be making the pain in my neck and shoulder worse. It seems you just can't win for losing I try my best to keep my chin up even if only for a pun intended of course!
