Angry The last straw

I told this so called specialist in july that I would never see him agaain because of his deciet and going behind my back to my wife after I had told him that she was to be kept out of it because I was afraid any more strees or strain would kill her but he ignored me and told her he was thinking of having me sectioned.
Now I find he wrote to my Dr 30 Sept suggesting I be put on Risperidone which when I looked it up can cause muscle pain muscle stiffness and insomnia among other things.
What does he think that will do to someone who already has the most painful condition in the world, a hand that seizes up if I don't constantly flex the fingers and hasn't slept for more than 2 1/2 hrs at a time in 28 months

Re: The last straw

Ask him straight up how a med that causes insomnia is going to help you sleep when you can't sleep anyway.

Re: The last straw

Look on the bright side...one of the other side effects of Risperidone is breastmilk production. Imagine ...not being able to sleep...laying there and randomly start producing breastmilk. At least you would be awake to clean it up. Or possibly start feeding a small 3rd world country. Sorry Kev Ive been going nuts with doctors and meds. Cant stand either one of them. One drug that they "upped" started giving me Virtigo. Dizzy as hell while the world or room was spinning. I kept yelling..."I'm falling!!" Other made me gain 17 lbs....I cant afford to gain weight Rsd is in both legs/feet. Other sleeping pill didnt let me sleep till 4:30 at night. I get soooo mad. This is from a new Pain Management specialist/anesthesiologt who in the first 20 min of meeting me...suggested a spinal cord stimulator gave me prescriptions and I have NEVER talked to him again. I make appointments but they only let me see the P.A. This doc knows nothing about me. Im thinking... (thanks to Painman) he would see me in an instant if he could collect the $ from the SCS procedure. I drove all the way to his office...got the prescription (Opella) took it to pharmacy they would NOT fill it because the idiots didnt date it. lol I said what if I put a date in there and you would never known...the young pharmacy tech told me...No mamn we are handwriting specialists....I laughed. It's still in my purse and Im mad as hell and took myself off all stupid drugs. Iv'e been house bound for over 2 years (mainly my fault from fear) Im trying to go to the gym...it still hurts sometimes I cry but I know I need to move my muscles/legs. Im not over doing it because I know I will pay for it for DAYS. I do feel a little better but will entertain more research for a different drug that will work for me. Nothing takes this pain away. So I have to SUCK it up...try and at least "look" normal, and take each day at a time. Im still mean and bitter (on the inside) but laughing makes me NOT think about my pain. SO...Kev you need to start the Joke Thread again. one other thing. I go to Curves...a gym for women....I laugh because most have been going for a long time and most are some VERY hefty women. I wonder is it working? lol Then on the wall they sell t-shirts...saying CURVES.....I laughed out loud thinking I should make new shirts just saying ROLLS.... (sorry Im rambling...my brain tells my fingers to type and I just cant shut them up)
Take care everyone...hang in there...Keep researching and dont let the doctors push you around.
