Free At Last!
I am sorry I have been gone so long and had this blog shut down. But it was needed for awhile.
I decided it was time to come back and let you know my wonderful news!
As most of you know I have suffered with a lot of pain since 1994 and it has not gotten any better except for some of the time I took biologics for my RA.
Nothing seemed to work for my Fibromyalgia. I have recently taken some bad falls and have hurt myself badly...It seems that because of the pain I am not lifting my feet correctly and I have basically tripped twice now. I have damaged the Sacral nerves on my left side, and it is excruciating! Basically pain pills and a tens unit was all that helped.
So after being pretty disillusioned and kicked out of a practice where I had been a patient for over 20 years, I finally decided to try a pain clinic.
I went to a place called Arizona Pain. I saw a doctor who listened and asked questions and came to a conclusion that I need three different meds. A pain patch that gives me a small dose of a narcotic every hour, a Gabapetin pill for the Fibro and a new Ibuprofen pill wrapped in fomotodine.
It too about a week, but one morning I woke up, took my meds and an hour later I was PAIN FREE!
Pain free...for the first time in 25+ years. I figured it was just a really good day, even though I had never had one like it...and every day since has been the same...I have energy, I did the grocery shopping today, I haven't done that in years without it exhausting me and putting me in bed with pain.
On Mother's Day I even RAN for about 20 feet! Just to see if I could...it was amazing, my son Bryan and I had such a laugh over it!
I am hopeful that this is my life from here on in...I might have gotten to this point at 63...but whatever time I have left will be wonderful!
Start walking in the pool here and get some weight off.
Go see my friend in Colorado and ride a horse!
Be involved with life again!
I am so glad to be back here, on my sweet blog and hopefully some of my friends are still around...
Thanks for stopping by,
