False sense of security

Jul 13, 2016 - 0 comments

I think perhaps the larger doses of Lyrica gave me a false sense of hope and security.  My pain and discomfort today is back in full force, once again I have lost all circulation in my hand and the uncomfortable freezing is horrid.

My arm is aching in throbbing from my neck to my finger tips.

Had a bad night sleep, feeling very tired, frustrated and pretty bloody ordinary.

Haven't got anything else to say today, just don't want to talk about it anymore.

Not Happy

Last night was horrid, excruciating aching and throbbing in my arm almost all night.  Haven't slept much at all.  Feeling quite low, however I am at work and just trying to scrape myself up off the floor to get on with the day.

Quite sore and uncomfortable. Didn't go for my walk this morning just couldn't find the motivation out of the tiredness and pain.  

Little bit befuddled after talking to the OT yesterday at first she was surprised that I already had the CRPS diagnoses from my Dr and Also their Dr Vic, I am beginning to wonder if these guys actually talk and if they are on the same page with regards to my treatment.

Then a couple of times she mentioned that the diagnoses is a grey area?????  I am confused and frustrated???

I am concerned that due to my positive attitude and the fact that I refuse to succumb to this condition they team feel that I can deal with it on my own.

Make no mistake, I am in PAIN, CONSTANT UNRELENTING PAIN.  There are days and nights when I feel like I can chop off my arm, and there are days when I am very low, however I do have the ability to push myself threw it.  

It's unfair, that this has happened to me, I am so Farkin angry, frustrated and confused.  However it is here and I just have to get on with it.

Woke up this morning sore as hell, arm throbbing and aching.  

Started our walking today at 5am, now my arm is even worse, however I will continue with the exercise as I need to loose weight and get back to what I was a year ago.

Can't really say much more for now, in a hell of a lot of pain and discomfort, and I need to get on with work so over and out.

Well the weekend is over, I did some one arm mowing on the ride on which I enjoy as its something I can do one handed and I don't need to ask for help.  

Did a bit of cooking and attempted some chopping and damn near sliced my thumb off. I find it so frustrating that I have always had great knife skills and now I'm useless.

Sunday morning woke up at 3am in excruciating  pain, my arm was horrible, just throbbing constantly, went and had a coffee and sat for a while trying to breath through it, finally went back to bed at 5am fell asleep around 6am and then woke up 8am.  

Felt very ill all Sunday, was very anxious about my chest pain, however I don't believe it is my heart. I think perhaps I should have got the antibiotics that Dr Jess prescribed, as my chest feels like I have been king hit in my chest, it very hard to breath.

Anyway its back to work today so power on and stay positive.
