Feelbad & Chrissy, Whatever this is the pain is EXCRUCIATING! I just start throbbing. I hate getting out of bed in the morning. It is definantly getting worse. pain is radiating further from shoulder area up the neck & down further in to the ribs & entire scapula region. The pectoral area is so sore its unreal. Told my husband after another morning of dry heaves I cant take this any more.
I put a post up on MRI's & such but it was moved so guess I'll try again here. This is completely out of control. I am going to see the Rehab. doc in the morning & telling him I can't take this any more. I just burst into tears this morning waiting for this pain med to kick in. I can't even let the arm hang down at all, have to keep it in a sling to take the weight off the shoulder area. I guess if you think about it all this inflammation probably aggravates any other problems in the cervical area, kind of makes sense. Breathing is so darn painful. I have been taking advil along with the percocet to try to get some kind of relief from all this inflammation. It is so strange my left hand only turns cold or is drenched with sweat. My husband said I layed my left hand on his back in the night & it was ice cold. I dont dare try to lift this arm at all. I have lifted it accidently like in my sleep or in a hurry getting dressed & I'll hear a snapping or popping noise, weird.
When I think back in april, even before that,when this started hurting every day I was in the doctors every couple days, they would give me a shot for inflammation & send me home, no tests, no good exam for the longest time, even when they got around to finally doing an exam & found they could not raise my arm or touch certain areas they still never even sent me for a test, I get so angry wondering if all this could have been avoided. Now I will beg for help. I pray this ortho does something. I don't see how it can be avoided. I simply can't take it anymore.
I could hardly drive these past few days can't have the seatbelt touching me. So enough is enough. Today will be spent in the recliner icing for the day & praying tommorrow is better. Rehab. appointment tommorrow, surgeon dec 28. Thanks & wish me luck! I will try the lido patches again today in the back area, Heck I'll try anything. Sammy
