hi janet,and everybody else...i get this EMG done thursday,so i dont have long to wait on that...the MRI and the EMG should be the only tests i need to have...i dont know why,but the last 3-4 days,i have not had the excrutiating pain,just a tired leg,at the end of the day...dont know if its the Neurotin and the increase,because i still worked the same at my job...so the other nite,i tried some of the physical exercises and a couple of them last nite,and they do tire out my leg even more...maybe its cuz this neurologist sees i dont have problems with my arms and my good leg,is why she tends to think its not post-polio,as much as its the deformity and surgeries i've had,but did say i would lose it everywhere else,if i do keep up this work i do...i hope i find out the results of this EMG,because its 3 months before i go back to see her again...i read too that after an EMG,you'll be sore for a few days,so working is just going to compound this too...well i hope you're all doing good...cheryl
Greetings All. I read some of the back posts since I haven't been on for a few days. I'm having skin integrity issues so I've been down for the last few days. I finally went to the doctor and they gave me diflucan and it seems to be working. I like the idea that you only have to take one pill. Love that.
Cheryl, I've read the posts for this week and it sounds like you are on the right track. I'm just sorry that getting better has to feel worse in the beginning.
I must be brain dead because when I've had my EMG's, it was a little irritating but I didn't experience anything much. Hmmmm. Maybe I got lucky. It's the test where they hook you up to a machine with wires in different places and the machine sounds real static-y?
Not much else going on around here. The weather is still not warm enough for me even though the sun tries to lure me outside. I'm feeling this winter the cold more than before. It just takes a minute or 2 and if it's cold, I immediately feel it in my bones. Have you guys had any trouble with it? Also, I've been waking up choking. It's like the barrier between the nose and throat is open and my saliva runs down my wind pipe and makes me wake up choking. I am going to the Dr. on the 14th and this will be one of the things we talk about. I've just raised the head of my bed so gravity is my friend.
Well, it's 3:53 AM so I'd better get off my hiney and try to sleep a bit before I have to get up. Hugs to you all. It's good to chat with you. Jan
