Thanks for all information and insight. Don't come here as much as I should. It's nice to cummunicate with people who at least, understand, or try to. I had already been checked for Vitamin D Levels, and I think they are ok. I've had low Vitamin D levels before, and I had never heard of that before, I was prescribed strong Vitamin D. Felt better after that. I was feeling drained. It was to the place I I felt like I could hardly get around and do anything. Didn't Know I needed it checked for Fibro.
Don't worry. I'll be back. Have plenty questions.View Thread
Thanks for the advice. I've had something similar before, but did seem too intense before. I also have ulnar nerve entrapment. Was suggested that I have surgery on teh right arm, but if they couldn't guarantee improvement, I did not want to go through the pain and expense.
Have notice that I have problems dropping things and not being able to grasp things, and..sorry to be dragging on, but I don't have anyone to talk to that can relate.View Thread
Please don't give up! I too share most all of your concerns. I've had this for many years before they found out what it was about a year ago. I also have chronic pain from osteoarthritis, ulnar nerve damage, cold hands face feet and female upper parts. Please don't give up. I know it looks bleek. But what keeps me going is knowing God. The plain simple truth. I pray. I pray that others may at least try to understand and be more mindful. I pray that God help me through this.
Don't know the reason that people have to suffer. But God knows! His will is perfect. Maybe we are all here to show others how to persevere in the face of adversity. I have cried many tears, and I will still cry, but knowing there is a God that here me give me some peace and comfort.
The Lord has sent me here out of desperation. I glad I was lead here, otherwise I would have almost no support. My DH likes to think he can fix everything and move on. He believes if he pays for the Prescriptions they should work. if I'm having a bad minute he always ask, "Did you take your medicine" as if I would forget and this is happening because of that, or the medicine don't work.
I settle when it comes to what I need just so I can keep the peace. Don't want to make anymore bills!! Been deaing with issues for over 15 years. I also have sickle cell SC disease, which lead to AVN or osteoarthritis. I've have (2) Hip replacements, 1 in 2007 and the other in 2008. My family doctor found that I needed those when we were talking and he touched my shoulders and told me That I had shoulder of a '90 year old. Need those replaced, but no doing anything. Blessed to be able to continue to work. My Boos is great we had made adjustments @ my desk to make thing better.
Please hang in there we all are suffering. If you have to, please just walk away and lie down if you feel stress coming on. I know arguing and trying to get to the things you have in your mind to do can cause a big flare.
I feel your pain. Jesus has bourne our grief and with his stripes we are healed. I know it feels like we've been beat with the stripes, but I believe it is a mind thing. I used to here this all the time, but it is true. Change you frame of mind. Don't let the devil take your life.
I will lift up myine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh fromthe Lord, which made heaven and earth.
God Loves you. There is nothing that we are going through, that he doesnt already know about. I'm not perfect. I hope I can help. Glad there is a place to vent, because sometimes I could SCREAM!!!View Thread
I was unbeliveably tired a couple years ago and my nurse practitioner suggested that I get my levels check, and my Vitamin D was very low. They gave me some big horse pills to swallow for a caouple weeks, and what do you know, they did the trick. Didn't know how bad I felt until I felt better.
Since then I don't feel that tired, but I am tired. I might check on continuing the vitamin D. I rub myself done with somethign like ben gay, and use heating pads. Learned that a long time ago. I take baths, when I can get in the tub, and long showers.
I listen to musi all the time. They let me listen to online radio at work after I let the shame go and sort of explained my plight. They also bought me new warming gloves, because I found our that I have ulnar nerve entrapment. My nose hands, feet and face are almost always cold. Seem like I am very sensitive to cold. I told my doctor about the cold thing, and he said"keep warm" that's all I can tell you! He said he doesn't know why some people have to suffer more than others. We all ask God why, and I answered Why not. He said that was good attitude to have. Lord knows I try. I may not look like it , but I do.
I wished I could eliminate some more stress, but that comes with living in this world. But when all else fails, I look to the hills from whcih cometh my help. Being like this seems to keep me in constant contact with the Lord. Not that I wasn't consulting before. It Just make you more aware.
I am new to this community. I've posted here once. i live in the midwest and am experincing the same temps. Making it through the work day I know is an act of God. I thank him and praise him both for good and bad.
I experience all that you have and some other things that seems like its too many to list, but I will mention one. It is facial pain and everyday earche and throat ache. Ear ache is more than the latter. It is relly starting to bother me. Don't want to go to the doctor. Get tired of the bills. Don't want to stress my husband. He's had to put up with a lot in 15 years. He still bearly have a clue, and acts like he can just fix it and it is supposed to stay fixed!
I can't explain to people that I feel terrible sometimes off and on daily. They don't understand that I can be ok one minute athe next minute not! Sorry. I catch myself doing this often. I'm tired of having to explain, and it sounds like excuses. I talk to God often, but I'd like to talk with an actual human being at times. I cry a lot. Try not to do it in front of anyone. Always in private, unless we get on this subject I get touchy.
Thanks for everything. I wasn't sure my post took. That's why you may see it again. I understand pain. Have been dealing with it nearly 15 years now. Ever since after my daughter was born.
Yes at first Doctors tried to give me Cymbalta because the thought is was all in my head. Some days everythign hurts. It hurts to be touched. My clothes hurt, the water from the shower hurt. My face hurt, but I need to move on. God is not punishing me. He's using me for something. I don't quite know yet.
It is by HIS power that I am. God gets me through my days. He knows that it's hard. That's why he send me laughter and good friend were at work.
You can always vent to me. Sometimes I hurt to type, but I will go through it be cause it is worth it.View Thread
