According to my report i read from my Pain Management dr's they are looking at dx'ing me with fibro. I dont know what is going on, all i know is i am getting worse. Please read my post and see if anything pops out at you. I was injured at work in May 2008, until then i was perfectly fine, i was very active, worked hard, i drove a 18wheeler all over the country. Since May 2008, i have been dx'd with cervical/lumbar degenerative disk disease, cervical/lumbar spondyliosis. I am on the Fentanyl pain patch, lyrica, tegretol, paxil and klonopin (last three for my bipolar). I am in Physical therapy right now, it isnt doing anything but causing me pain, she is just working on releasing my muslces, no physical stuff for me to do. She is very concerned to what is going on with me. Here are my symptoms
eye, eye socket pain, neck pain
fatigue, body aches so badly, body jerks (i mean hard and bad) like when my leg does it i could easily hurt someone lol. serisouly now. Pain in my left hip, leg, both legs hurt all way to toes.
I have to walk with a cane now, i cant walk properly, i have slap foot with my left foot. i either shuffle my feet when i walk or i have problems with my gait. I can only walk very very short distances then my legs feel heavy and WILL give out.
my memory is shot, concentration, i have brain fog really bad
but i also cant talk phsically for very long, i am unable to get my thoughts straight sometimes but also unable to form the words. MY throat will start hurting badly when conversating then my words start sluring , slower and slower my words come out, until i am unable to talk at all.
I have had MRI's, they showed the DDD etc, also showed a thryroid nodule and throat cyst, i cant get to the dr for those right now due to money issues. I am supposed to have a biopsy done when i am able. All my thyroid labs came back good. I have seen a neurosurgeon for slapfoot, he said not a surgical candidate right now. I cant do anything hardly anymore, heck i have to have help taking a shower, my energy zaps QUICK then i will fall. I dont know what is going on. i am scared. tired of not being able to take care of my home, my husband has to do everything, cooking, cleaning, laundry etc. I try to do simple things like dishes at night and pay for it dearly with pain.
Oh , My vision. First it started off i was having problems reading, so i got reading glasses, they arent strong enough anymore. i get blurred vision ALOT, eye pain etc.
ok enough for now, sorry...please someone help!
