Hello everyone who suffers an affliction of any kind. I'm a 58 year old male who has two adult sons and a wife of 36 years. In 1996 I was involved in a auto accident whereby I obtained a brain injury that was diagnosed a few months later by two neuropsychologists which showed I have frontal lobe damage, temperol lobe damage and difuse damage throughout my brain. I can't work because of it and am on Social Security Disability. A year or two later I was playing around with a metal detector and tried to get up off the ground. I couldn't! I was panicked and crawled over to the deck and pulled myself up. I went through all the doctors and they determined I had Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR). I pointed out I had sore spots on my chest, neck, arms and elsewhere and asked if it could be Fibromyalgia. The answer: "Men don't get Fibro, take this predisone and everything will disappear in a few days" Nothing disappeared. I was on Predisone hell for over 6 months until I was titrated down to 0. They then put me on a drug that is used for antirejection. No help. I was suffering severe muscle pain and am allergic to aspirin so I ended up on a high total of 240mg of Oxycontin. I've titrated down to 40mg. Anything below that and I get restless legs. I asked the doctor on a tip from someone on the net to check my testosterone. He laughed and said it was fine. I insisted and he was astounded when it came back around 60 when 300 is low normal for a man. I had about as much testosterone as a woman naturally has. I did not develop any female traits. I was given a gel and it has me up in the normal range. Much of the pain subsided. My muscles below my waste are weak and ache. Pain killer and tylenol help. I am on about 20 pills including insulin for diabetes. I just had two heart stents put in but my heart is in pretty good shape overall. Now to the problems: Pain in the legs below the waste, weak muscles in the legs, tenderness in the leg muscles and sleeping problems. I sleep fine but wake up after about 6 hours and can't get back to sleep. I don't drink alcohol, coffee, or tea (I'm a Mormon). During the day, I will simply drop off to sleep in the car, in the house or wherever. I find it embarrassing. I have been tested for sleep apnea. I do feel tire most of the time. I don't want to go round and round all the neurological testing. John's Hopkins simply told me I had "Chronic Pain Syndrome" and o.k'd the Oxycontin for the doctor. Any ideas, help, suggestions, etc????
