Hi my name is dawn. i've been having back problems for the last 3 yrs..i took a fall down a flight of stairs in my home carrying up 3 laundry baskets and tripping over my cat.. on nov 6th 2007 i took a fall off from a step stool where i use to work, my left foot got entwine in the stool and down i went. i tried to use my hands to break the fall, and ever since that accident i've been having swelling of my feet and hands, and severe burning sensation.. my hands and feet feel like they are on fire, i've called my back doctor complaing about these symptons,and now he's testing me for lupus..my family Dr.told me he thinks it's a pinch nerve, so i asked him if there are test out there that i could get done ,i just had a EMG done on my lower left back, and left leg..does anybody else have these problems? i'm ready to cut my hands and feet off... thank you for listening to my problems hope to hear from you all soon... Dawn
