1st off, i must tell
you all i am sorry..this may be long!!!! beware!!!
Sometime last week i was awoken on the middle of the nite w/extreme pain in mid/lower back..but the wosrt of the pain was going from my right groin, down my rt. leg..after the pain subsided my back was still painful..but rt. leg felt like it was on fire.
Next morning pain/burning was more tolerable..went about my business the best i could...burning was still in rt leg....from groin down and the weird part is the burning was on both the top of my leg and the back of my leg.
For a bit over 1 mth i have been complaing about my neck and arms as well as left sided leg weakness...I think people around here think I am NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!iThough, the cervical spine MRI showed things were messed up..waiting to hear from my NS in RI..I do have appt with local spine doc this friday.
So..yesterday I ended up in the ER b/c I just couldn't take the pain and could barely walk...the ER doc was nice..But, I'm nice too..however, you guys wouldn't want me to treat you!!!
Told him about my pain and burning...told him my neck was a mess but i was NOT there B/c of that.
OK, he examines me and tells me.."I can write you something for the pain"..PAL....I want ANSWERS..NOT DRUG..though a shot right about now would be lovely....naturally, i keep that thought to myself...I did ask if he was goning to order any test to see what was wrong..oh yeah, a freakin' X-Ray..I think we can all agree that is not helpiful with my past fusions ect...I was think more of an MRI???
But it is my experience these docs get their fragile egos bruised you the patient suggest ANYTHING???
Now to my question: do you folks ever get the feeling that the people around you are thinking.."WTF NOW?????"The pain can't be that bad, shes been visiting Ma in the hosptial everyday for hrs on end with a smile on her face..cracking jokes..ect...."
Any similar experiences with you all, or am i just flat out paronoid?????LOL
