It's been awhile since I posted last.
Just a few quick questions.
I had a stomach flu 2wks ago and then just found out I have a sinus infection that just won't go away, and then got the stomach flu again ( I have 4 kids so things tend to circulate constantly) My question is my pain seems to be intensified, I have RSD in my right lower extremity but the pain seems to be very bad from the top of my head to the tips of my toes on the right side, I have muscle aches on the left also from top to bottom but not as bad. I was feeling wonderful a few days ago and now I feel horrible. I am waiting to see a specialist but it can take awhile, meanwhile I don't know what to do because my neurologist doesn't know how to treat the RSD, so I am going over her head and today I called a pain managment place and asked if they are familiar with RSD and she said they are. So I am getting a refferal and getting an appt., I am so scared about the thought of this spreading and no one seems to care so I have to take my care and treatment into my own hands.
I am very upset that I even have to deal with this and just feel like venting, I cried all day yesterday because of these pains and the thought of it spreading and being in a wheelchair and not being able to care for my children, also ( I know I am nuts but we want another baby , we both came from big families and now I don't know if that is possible and it makes me want to cry.) No one around me seems to understand what I am going through and neither do the doctors, so I feel alone. Thank god for my hubby, he is my rock, without him I would be lost, he listens to my worries and tries to make them better but he doesn't fully grasp what I am experiencing and it upsets him because he wants to help and he can't. He is very angry at the women who hit me, he feels my life was pretty much turned upside down, I went from being superwomen to now somedays not being able to do much of anything and it urks me to no end !!!
Well I think I vented enough, if someone could tell me about these symptoms because this is the first time I have been sick since being diagnosed I would appreciate it.
Wishing all a pain free day!
