I say 'were', because with this DD I feel like i'm nothing anymore. I read here alot, but dont post too often. This DD has taken my life. I dont like it one bit. I went to a pain clinic 2 weeks ago. They told me I have degenerative discs in my neck and thats whats causing all my pain. My primary doctor said fibro. The pain clinic put me on steroids and took me off pain meds. I was in bed for a week b/c the pain was so bad I couldnt even move. Then, I called my primary and he called in a script for pain meds, thank God. I'm supposed to go back to the pain clinic for an epidural injection in my neck in 4 days. Will it help? I don't know. When I called the pain clinic before calling my primary they asked me if I took Aleve for my pain. I laughed and cried at the same time. ALEVE???? Yea, i've been on narcotic pain meds since last october and aleve is going to help. (I did actually try aleve, took 5 instead the 1 and it did nothing). I've been taking soaks in espom baths pretty much every day. It does help. I have a few hours of being able to do things- like laundy, clean the house, and take my kids to do things. I just want my life back. To be 'normal' again. I've tried so many things that just dont work for the long term. I have 2 more things to try. One my Uncle recommended, some type of specialized chiropractic thing- my chiro does that so thats the next step. Then, something called prolotherapy. Its an injection into the bad areas that stimulate growth of the injured ligaments and tendons. Going from a 'do it all' person to this just depresses me to no end.
