I went in to my IM Dr. on Thursday, Apr. 30, 2009 so my Dr. could give me a Cortisone Injection in my right knee that has been in major pan and very swollen, I guess it is going to take a few days to ease the pain, because last night and today my knee has hurt worse than before the injection. So it is frozen peas on the knee for 15 minutes 3 times a day.
I talked to him about the extreme pain in my back and knee and that the morphine was not helping as long for the pain, so he said I could take a vicodin if I needed it for the Pain. I did that last night and I slept good.......
On my way home from my Dr.s office which is not far from home. I had not taken any Meds. I would take it when I get home. I drove myself to the Dr.s it was a the 1st time I had driven since last October when I broke my foot. I was okay going over. Coming home I was all over the streets,trying not to hit any parked cars. I had a panic
attack. Which made it worse.
I am so depressed. I just cried. Fibro has taken so much I am so tired dealing with all the changes in our lives , I just so tired of all the pain the never ending pain.This pain is unforgiving and getting worse. I go for bone density test on May 30 th.
I Hate the Chronic Pain, Fibro.!!! I don't like the way my My Hubby acts when we are out and I am using me scooter, like I am a child or I can't handle that.
