I have problems from head to toe. Pain in my jaw and it pops everytime I open my mouth, I'm having tingling in my face now, usually my upper lip and then it runs up my face on each cheek bone area, in my wrists there are times I can hardly pick up a coke or anything, my back, well its been hurting for 15 to 20 years. I've never seen a doctor for it til this past September when it "locked up" and I was not able to stand, sit, lay anything. I have problems with my hips, knees, and ankles. My back is the worst of them all, the others I can handle, but my back puts a damper in anything I try to do. I've had x-rays on my back, hips, knees and the doctor told me everything is ok. My spine looks fine and there is nothing she can see that would cause me to hurt. I do not have insurance, so I'm limited in what I can do, because I live on a fixed income with my husband who is disabled from a wreck. I've tried heat and ice for my back, I've used the heat so much I've scared the skin on my lower back. I keep seeing posts talking about MS and ALS, and that is scaring me, due to I had a first cousin with MS. My Mother has been diognosed (sp) with Sjogen's, and we have diabetes in my family which both brothers now have. There are times I think, heck I'd be better off dead because the pain is so bad, or I need to do something and can't because of my back. Guess I'm just frustrated because I can't get an answer to why I'm having soo many problems and I'm only in my mid 30's. We don't have children, do to mainly my back, I'm scared I wouldn't be able to do what needed to be done. Sorry for rambling, but I'm not sure what to do. :confused: :mad: :oReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
