    I can't stay on long....so much back pain. It is also such pain in area of my right shoulder blade....like a pulled muscle...but I haven't done anything to pull it!

    I was awake off and on last night with that... and the pain that I get under left rib area (upper). It is HORRIBLE stabbing, burning pain. I feel it coming on... and it gets so bad I can barely stand it. I have to sit up in bed....or roll over... and rub it very hard until the pain lets up some!!

    I have told my docs... and they just say....it's the fibro!! A lot of help...huh?

    Does anyone else get this sharp stabbing pain?

    MamaR, I've been in a flare most of this year. I surely hope you feel better. I can't wait for spring to come and the temps to go over 70. That seems to be my lucky temp number.

    Feel better, hon.

    Hugs,
    Faye

    Thanks so much....Yes...I gotta go lie down. I can't concentrate with this!


    Hope to see you all tomorrow....and hope that you have a restful night!

    I sure hope that that the people in the earthquake area are o.k. Sure wish I could hear. Maybe I can check back later.

    I had a somewhat better night last night...but the pain is still pretty bad. I am sure with your disc problems you can understand.

    I am suppose to go in to see the orthopedic surgeon...hopefully avoid surgery.

    But... after having all the expensive tests...I am trying to pay some of that off before building more expense that I can't pay!

    I tell you....the stress of the bills makes it worse...so thought it out...and it is better on me to wait until that time.

    I am so sorry you are in such pain. With all the test, etc. you have had, you'd think the doctors would say more than what they did. Can't they help with pain? Do they give you any pain meds?

    I do get a pain in my ribcage but more at the bottom...so painful and I can't find a good way to get it to stop. It usually occurs later in the day, so I try stretching out and than is some help, but not much. However, I am able to sleep. I am so sorry for your pain.

    Our trip to Oregon just about did me in...the pain in my ribs and left leg, back especially was awful. Better today being at home.

    Take care of yourself. I will pray for your pain levels to decline...and how about those medical bills? Has the insurance helped anymore?

    Love,
    Sue

    I just posted about you!!! I was asking if anyone had heard from you. I just went back and deleted it!
    I guess that we were on at same time.

    I have had you on my mind so much the last few days. I didn't know if you had gone to see your mom.

    I hope that she is well. I know that it will take awhile to adjust to her loss. But, at least she has you to comfort and uplift her.

    I am so sorry that you are having the pain. Maybe that you are now home...you can rest up and it will get better.

    I haven't been on here much in the last few weeks.


    Yes...I am on Toradol injections and Flextra DS. I can't tolerate strong meds.

    But, this rib cage pain is horrible. I have to see if doc will give me something!

    I forgot....just not thinking straight at all today!

    Well, the insurance has paid their part....but you see...so many expensive tests was done. And it makes my part owed almost $1,000.00! Then, the docs fees! All of them coming in at once.

    If I was working....but I'm not. And we have just bought this house and land. So our budget it SO TIGHT!

    I have agreement with hospital and docs to pay in payments what I already owe....but I just need to get that paid down before going and making more debt!

    I decided that the stress level would be less just to wait a few more weeks before moving forward with specialists.

    I will get through it.

    Thanks for being there. I truly appreciate you all SO very much!!!

    I just wrote a note to you on yur post for me and then saw you had deleted it! Oh my! Funny!

    A short recap...we went to see Jim's brother in Bend, OR...went to Mt. Shasta to see a contractor/designer and rested. Mom is doing OK...busy but lonely. I will be going down in 6 weeks for the birth of my niece's baby so I'll spend some time then if not before. I need to have some time at home. It's been a long year.

    Need you to get some pain relief, dear. You need not suffer like this. I still can't get over the insurance company not paying more on your tests. Seems somewhat fishy to me.

    Take care...thanks for caring.

    Love,
    Sue

    that I deleted the post after you had sent me a message.

    I didn't think that you had seen it! And thought it would clutter the board.

    I am so happy that you was able to get out and enjoy the trip.
    Are you planning to maybe build a house near Mt. Shasta?

    Again sorry about the delete...M

    Hi! This is Carla.:>) I am sorry to hear you are down and in this much pain. A few weeks ago you had posted to me when I was really down and out, and I never really got to thank you for your support! :>) I was having a pretty rough time and could hardly stay online to post to anyone. You were so kind and supportive and this is a very late thank you, but THANKYOU for being so sweet and posting. :>) It sounds like you are in a lot of pain. I hope that you can get some relief real soon and that the nights get easier to sleep/rest. :>) Take care and LOL Carla

    I only saw the post after I read your note on this one. I looked for it and wrote a bit.

    Yes, we are going to build a house in Mt. Shasta...we bought a lot a year ago and now are planning to build. Jim will retire in a couple years so we're on the move. More sun and a dryer climate...need that.

    It was just funny because I wrote and it was gone. (-: You were right to tidy up the board.

    I have been so concerned about you!

    Don't you worry about getting back to me....never worry about having to respond. I know that even that... in itself can be stressful... at times. And you don't need anymore stress.

    I just was hoping and praying that you are doing better.

    I just wish that I could sit and talk with you and encourage you.

    I know EXACTLY what it feels like to need someone to talk to.

    Take care of yourself!

    I am feeling some better today...THANK GOD!

    I have to go now....get John off to work, then out to do some errands.

    I want to talk to you about your retirement!

    Some things that I want to ask you.

    I will check back tonight... hopefully.

    I know....it is just SO FRUSTRATING!!!! I have a project that I need to do on the computer...but I can't sit here but a few minutes at a time.


    I was suppose to go out and do errands, but just can't stand the thought of facing people today... the way I feel!

    I am so tired of having so much to do...and just can't do it.

    I thought that I would check back in here before going back to couch to rest this aching shoulder.

    Have a good evening....MamaR
