In 1994, after my husband died, I suffered weakness in my arms and legs. It seemed to eventually improve but the doctor just said myofascial disorder for pain, prescribed Rx for one time. :cool:
Since them, I have weakness in legs, arms, hands, and bladder. I had an MRI checking for MS-- Negative. I had a CT done, my head is fine. Now I have constant pain that travels around my body. Sometimes when I try to relax, my muscles spasm, twitch, and ***k me around. This can be when I am driving, lying down, or sitting for any period of time. Another dr. said Fibromyalgia, but does not know why I have jerking and twitches. My brain is dead in memory capacity and I had to quit school due to absent-mindedness-- against my wishes, they revoked my scholarship when my professors started seeing physical symptoms appear-- forgetting, repeating questions with :confused: mental confusion. I try NOT to take meds-- hydrocodone & Soma because they worsen the conditions.
I suffer with insomnia, too, and sometimes break out in a rash across for my face for no aparent reason. I had an MRI of my back and they found osteoarthritis in lumbar area and some pinched disks in C4 C5. I do not sleep well, and it drives me nuts when I am soooo exhausted but my body wont let me sleep. I feel like my body is betraying me. I can not do any physical work or my symptoms get escalated to hyper-sensitive and all pain and twitching increases! I mean no vacuuming, no grocery shopping, nothing. I am on a scooter to go to store-- embarassing at 47 years old. HELP! :eek:
I just married after 13 years of single mom hood and feel like I have let down my new husband who is watching me digress. We have hired Binder and Binder to try to get me disability cause of the fibromyalgia and arthritis, but is this it? Nobody can put all the symptoms together and develop a diet, exercise or Rx regime to make me better. Meanwhile, I sit and sit and sit and get depressed! :(
