Ive been dealing with this for over a Year now. Started with Pain in my left Wrist & Thumb, I went to the Docs thinking I maybe over did something..it happends. They could not find anything wrong but finally send me too the *bone docs* who gave me a Shot of Cortisone telling me nothing was wrong. The shot was given in my Wrist ( OMG THE PAIN!!!) And this did help for about 3 months, and It came back, this time my Thumb was just killing me,,( maybe I am just use too my Wrist hurting?) Anyway went back to the docs, this time telling them I have not done anything to be hurting my hand & thumb. Once again they cant find nothing wrong and give me a shot in my Thumb ( less pain) but it doesnt help at all. :(
Then they send me to a * Electro* Doctor, who did the Electro shot treatment Test, he tells me *Oh its youre Elbow Nerv* this is why youre having pain in youre Arm. I was confused as I didnt have any pain in my Arm at all, and I explain this to him. So now he is stunned and wants me too go thru exploranary (sp) Surgery! I was not happy... and honestly I fell they just want to poke and have NO idea what I might have. I declined....
So about 1 month after that ordeal , MY OTHER wrist and fingers start to hurt, I mean it feels like needles poking, ARHG!!!!:eek:
I again run to the docs, I am 36 I have 3 Kids, I was always active..this is making it hard to even hold a cup of Coffee in the morning.( Yes I have dropped a cup or 2)!
My fingers & hand swell up feeling like bloated, and hard to *move*. I have a bad Back and hips. ( degenertation in the lower 3 disc and hips are off by about 1 inch)
I am a bit over weight but I gained 50lbs in 4 years!! And I dont know why? They did all the blood tests nothing wrong there. They checked me for Lupus, and R. Arthritis, and bunch fo other stuff. Nothing. My body aches, my Legs are tight... I feel tired FAST, and need more Sleep now then ever?

I know getting old brings some Pains, but this is crazy! I am Puzzled( So are my Docs) now I brought up fibro and he dont think I have this because I dont have the Pressure points.:( So I dont know...

Anyone have any idea where to go from here?

  • I hate to say it but those are all symptoms of MS. Particularly the tiredness and tingling/pain in your hands.It could be something else but ask a doctor about the possibility of that.xxx

  • Spam for lunch anyone???? Hit the report post button... if you are tired of the boards being blazed.... You might want to join Lymenet. Some chronic Lymies were wrongly diagnosed with MS and improved with treatment for Lyme and coinfections, only you would need to see an LLMD. http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=053326 Click on "symptoms": http://www.canlyme.com/ When to Suspect Lyme: http://www.angelfire.com/biz/romarkaraoke/whento.htm Lymenet: http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php
