TERESA - October 8

How are you doing? I am having a lot of side pain today! I haven't slept well for the last 2 nigths & I think that's why I am in so much pain!! I was just wondering if the anti-inflamatory was working?

 

Stephanie417 - October 8

Well.. yesterday I thought I was doing pretty good.. but I didnt take an Ant-inflamatory untill last night.. Its wierd but now the shooting along the rib pain is starting on the other side too !!.. its kind of like an electrical shock feeling.. My mid back hurts SOOOOO bad !!.. I dont know its driving me mad !!..I am not sure if its the meds working or if I just have up and down days.. its pissing me off honestly.. i just want to feel better and play with my daughter like a normal mother again.. Im wondering if Im in a flare up though because Im exhausted lately.. for about a week. . I try to look up stuff on the web and all I get is scary stuff like rib and spinal cancer... how nice...Im sorry that you are hurting so bad, I understand.. Wish I could help us both.. Today I am going to go to the gym.. havnt been there since all this started again, but I think im going to just go to get in the hot tub and try the steam room.. see if that helps .. im getting desperate..

Ooh Yeah!! Hot tubs are wonderful. I use the one at the spa I go to!! Not open today but maybe I could just take a hot bath, or maybe not!! I have one of those old fashion clawfoot tubs & getting in and out will probably be difficult. I know about the back pain & at times I thought the pain was going to start on the otherside, but it just hurt for a while then went away. It's wierd but the pain seems to started in the front & go to the back! You'd think it would be the other way around!!

Another thing !!! You need to stay away from those scary cancer site!!! I you DON"T HAVE CANCER & you need to be have a possitive attitude! Your just too young!! I know what you mean about JUST BEING NORMAL AGAIN!! My kids are grown, but I have a new grandson & I think about if I'm going to be able to run & play with him like my grandma used to! Tuesday my grandma will be "98" & except for the fact she can't see she is very healthy

oh... Welll I opted to take a nap instead of going to the hot tub.. but I am going to do the hot bath thing today.. I know what you are saying.. about the pain seeming to come from the front sometimes.. and also what its like having a youthful grandma !! (smiles) my grandma is 74 and still seems to be about 55.. I think she has more energy than me most of the time.. haha... Yeah .. its like any symptom can some how come up as cancer on the web.. I think it does more harm somtimes trying to find out what is going on.. I did find a really really really good paper written by a doctor.. there are a few pages, but I think you would find it interesting.. some of the medical babble you have to skip through.. but im telling you.. it is scary how much it sounds like our symptoms..
this is the first page.. then you click on the other pages to continue.. let me know what you think..
