Well, the shots I am still getting every couple weeks, I am not afraid of the injections anymore, in fact i greet them with open arms. NO I am not one who likes pain, however I greet them from the temporary pain relief they do give me. I was balanced in my medication program and all was working together nicely, until the morning I woke up looking like the elephant woman. lol. hives and welts every where, YES EVERYWHERE. it was obvious it was my new pain patches, after the dosage had gotten high enough to work, my body decided ” YA I DON’T THINK SO, YOU CAN’T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO, YOU CAN NOT HAVE A DAY OR A WEEK OF MINIMAL PAIN, I JUST WONT HAVE IT!. SO back to the beginning as far as pain management goes, i don’t look forward to the next few weeks. But still happy to be in the pain care clinic, seriously the best thing ever, and all you out there suffering from pain, take my advice and seek a pain care clinic near you, i do think you might need a referral. although I didn’t like learning of all my ailments that I wasn’t aware of, i am also relieved to know, IT WAS NOT ALL FIBROMYALGIA LIKE DOCTORS HAVE ALWAYS SAID. ITS MUCH MORE THAN THAT. BUT knowing what other issues underlie I am able to help myself more, now that i have knowledge.
THEY HAVE DONE ALOT OF TESTS, AND ARE GIVING HIM A CAT SCAN AND AN MRI SOON, POOR DAD had a very uncomfortable test and it caused a lot of pain, dad never screams re pain:( we havent got any results yet, but i am certain we will know something today, again i will keep you informed. lets just pray nothing is life threatening:( mostly worried about the mass on his kidney:(.UGHHH THIS IS SO STRESSFUL, and the HOLIDAYS ARE HERE, THATS HARD ENOUGH ALREADY:(
SORRY AGAIN….. that i havent been faithful with the updates re; my new treatment, which by the way.IT DEFINATELY HELPING ME, still have pain, but can function and its way less,UNTILL 2 THE PAST 3 DAYS(ITS BEEN 3 WEEKS THOUGH) I have slowly got more pain and pinched nerves a muscle spasms.. besides apologizing for not keeping my promise, DAD HAS BEEN SICK………..Thtas why i Havent been here, Dad suffered a minor stroke right before thanksgiving, so of course i came to MASS, i live in Maine, AS SOON AS I HEARD…………HE has since came home from the hospital, he is slowly getting all his memory,functions back, as soon as he gained “HIS NORMAL” he suffered from bleeding of the rectum:(. I know i havent spoke of Dad, but he has a curvature of the spine that’s at a 45 degree angle, so it IS amazing he stands let alone walks, well long story short, hes been struggling with walking for a while now, and also suffers from C.O.P.D. I..just to catch you up quickly………….

Dad is still very confused and not remembering things and people to well, a lot he talks of is the far past, the good news is the stroke wont leave him with any signs, they said after a week maybe less he will gain his memory and feeling of his face, confusion will get less. he will not suffer any permanent damage, of course he is a high risk for another stroke, and next time he wont be so lucky. but for now WE are all happy of the news.
