This has happened about a half-dozen times in my life that I can recall but in the past year it is happening more frequent. Last night I was feeling so bad, hurting so much, so exhausted, by 8 PM I was ready to fold up. I went to bed about 9 PM and I can't lay still, can't stay in the same position for more than 10 seconds. I was aching and hurting so bad, praying for the pain to stop and let me sleep. I got back up, paced the floor for quite a while, feeling like I had the "heebie-jeebies or the screaming-meemies" is the only way I know to describe it. Finally I told hubby, you have to take me to the ER, I can't stand this any longer. Got to the ER and my blood pressure was 208/125 and yes I am on high blood pressure medicine. I was given a stiff pain shot, kept at the ER for a couple hours until my B/P pressure came down and then released. I am still trying to get in to see pain specialist before my scheduled appointment on the 17th of this month, it is only 2 weeks away but it might as well be 2 years away the way I feel right now. I wrote a long letter this morning to pain spcialist doc and faxed it to his office outlining symptoms, surgical history, and meds I am on. I am hoping and praying to hear something back today from him. Has anyone else ever had this where you can't sit still, can't lay still?? It is the most miserable thing!! I really don't know how much longer I can hold on. Called family doc yeterday and told them the Loratab was not helping the pain and I am taking 3 at a time. The doc was horrified to say the least. He immediately began talking about the possibility of liver damage and I am to the point, I just don't care anymore, I will do just about anything to stop this pain and get some quality back in my life. Family doc keeps assuring me there is light at the end of the tunnel...... I told him, knowing my luck, that light at the end of the tunnel is a train fixing to run me over.
