Since last post, spinal arthritis has been 'diagnosed' from an upper back MRI. BUT....!
Now her left arm is paralyzed, the physiotherapist and GP (MD) have said she must see a Pain consultant because she has not slept for more than 2 hours since JANUARY because of the pain. She has coldness, burning and / or searing pain in the left arm. My mother has also lost 25lb in 2 months but is basically immobile now due to the pain. Her face remains drooped on the left. She has been prescribed co-codamol, amitriptyline, diclofenac...
She cannot work, drive... my mother cannot use her left hand, its certainly weaker than the right, and she has no firm grip. A neck scan has been scheduled, this will be in a few weeks (if we are lucky...)
I am seriously concerned, if this speaks out to anyone who recognises these symptoms, PLEASE let me know
