Woke up crying in pain/venting


Sunday, September 08, 2013

This morning I woke up crying in pain, I wanted to stay in bed so my husband could sleep before his shift but I just couldn't the pain was so unbearable. OMG what that chiropractor did Friday really put me through hell!!!!!!!!!
I just sat there like a baby, putting heating pad on my upper back and lower and with my heat wrap around my neck I just sat there in tears and my husband just looked at me saying I wish you felt better baby.
I'm really starting to think I'll never feel better, I'm suppose to go tomorrow to see her noway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I might have to see if I can try a pain management place, because I'm so sick of this pain, I feel so bad that hubby didn't get more sleep cause of me and told him to stay in bed but he came down with me and took care of me.
I'm sitting here still crying like a baby , I guess this has come my place to vent I took a tylenol 3 that's like gold to me and only use it when I just can't bear the pain, but lately it seems like I could use it all the time but I'm running out and need to see my regular doctor.
I'm going to try and go back to bed, I'm so disgusted I guess I thought this woman was going to be my miracle when she said oh yes we treat fibro, but what she did is what my retired chiro use to do and I wish that man never retired but he got sickly, he was soooooo good this girl saying that me being in that much pain didn't make sense really hit me, I'M SO FED UP WITH DOCTORS. JUST LIKE WHEN THEY TOLD ME MY SON HAD GROWING PAINS AND THANK GOD I LISTENED TO MY GUT AND KEPT PUSHING, HE DID HAVE LYME JUST LIKE I THOUGHT! They told me I was crazy and everything but who was right?????????? ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had I listened to them my son could be like a vegetable, as I've known of children that were in coma's, lost their functions of their kidneys and bowels and had to wear diapers again at the teen ages, not being able to speak or think for themselves.
No one knows what you go through unless they have it and then when they do they are like oh I didn't know it was this bad.... and I feel like saying well when I told you it was this bad you didn't believe me you abandoned me, but now your calling to say hey I don't know how you deal with this...
Well my face is burning from crying all morning going to try and rest. emoticon just needed to vent...............

Honey, I'm sorry I don't even know your name but I recognize you just the same, I'm so sorry for what you're going thru right now, this morning. I wish I could be there to softly wrap my arms around you and very carefully, gently rock you back and forth like I hope your parents did when you were young and in pain.
Nothing sucks worse than to have to face the day with tears rolling down your face. It is so hard to see a way thru when the morning starts so pissy. I speak from experience, not fibro though. I have RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy) in all 4 limbs and have had it just shy of 20 years. The pain that comes with RSD is compared to having a limb amputated without anesthesia on the McGill Pain Scale.
I want to speak up for pain management physicians. Most of them are legitimate, kind hearted people who work very hard, train many extra years, cure very few patients, and have a high burn out rate because of the low cure rate. I have two sisters who are doctors and I have learned a lot about how to choose a good doctor.
I am going to put together a "how to" on picking pain management doctors and I will post it on the chronic pain team board. I've heard from a few people that they are worried about what they here on the news about pill mills and the like. There are some very easy ways to figure out who's for real and who's a rip off. I will break it down so some of our members will feel more comfortable making a choice. A good pain management specialist can do so much more for you than any chiropractor ever could no matter how well intentioned. DC's just don't have the legal ability to prescribe medicines or give simple injections that an R.N. can give.
No more mornings waking up to sheets soaked with tears. We can get you together with a decent doctor who can help you with mind/body techniques, better medicines that you take in the middle of the night so you wake up to a dry bed:), and better quality of life. Feel better sweetie. emoticon

    I am so sorry that you are in so much pain. I have arthritis, however, it comes and goes. My doctor says someday I will need knee replacement. Indirectly I am aware that pain can be horrible. My husband and brother are dealing with extreme pain. I send prays that God will ease your pain and you will find someone who can advise you about how to control your illnesses.

    Have you tried tramadol ? It is the only way I survive my day. I take one as soon as I get up and by the time I have finished my second cup of coffee my pain is dulled enough for me to do what I need to do for the day. I have to have something a little stronger for the nights. My primary writes both of those script's for me. The one time I went to a chiropractor she killed me too.
Hope you find relief soon.

    I'm there with you. I have thought about a pain management place but heard bad things about the one hear..the doc is rude, etc. It could really help you.
I know the pain you talk about. I have had it for 18 years. You feel like giving up. But know that God cares for you and that there is something to help you somewhere. It is just such a hassle to find what works. Then once it helps after awhile it stops. I am praying for you. Hang in there my friend!

    Many years ago my husband went to a chiropractor that made his pain worse, fortunately we found a Doctor who was a chiropractor and fixed him right up. I feel your going in the right direction to see a pain Doctor they can at least prescribe a therapist. P.S. I feel most chiropractors are quacks !! Hope you feel better soon. emoticon
