I got a letter from the neurologist stating that my brain MRI came back with results falling within normal limits.  I don't know if he meant to include my cervical spine MRI or not.  I need to call.  I am wondering if this means I do not have MS and that Fibromyalgia is just this bad.  It's just horrible.  
Maybe my severely low vitamin D levels lead to MS symptoms.  I'm so glad I found such an in depth rheumatologist that ordered a million labs.  I may have never found this out.  

Anyhow, who knows.

Began taking venlafaxine hcl ER 75 mg today in place of Cymbalta 30 mg.

I have what I would explain as a "cold sore" headache but I have no cold sore.  Probably the upcoming menses in about 5 days.

My eyes just did the "reading dance" while I was trimming my fingernails.  
9:06pm  - just happened again :/

Back Pain

Sep 11, 2012 - 0 comments






O.M.G. The pain.

My lower left back is causing me such excruciating pain I can barely see straight.  I've taken a gabapentin and a muscle relaxer to take the edge off.  I can feel the pain from my back radiate down my leg.  =' (

I took a cyclobenzaprine 10 mg and 100mg gabapentin upstairs and laid down for a few minutes until my back was relaxed enough to make it downstairs.  Once downstairs (in agony), I took a pain pill.  I feel that my pain level has gone to a very manageable level.  TG.

Ever since yesterday I can feel a vibration/twitching in my labia area (left side) and now, within the past 20 minutes I've noticed that might right eye is puffing up without pain.  WTH is going on with me?

I've been trying to do the most I can around the house while the pain killer is still working.  While doing the dishes and cleaning off the counter I noticed a burning sort of tingling on the outer side of my left arm.  
I went into the bathroom to see if I could see the puffiness around my right eye & while you really have to look to see it, there is a big rash around the frame of my face, especially the right side.  :/  I am really beginning to get worried.  

Husband gave me a back rub to try and get rid of the knot in my back.  The first pressure he put on it, I had vertigo that came on strong and then left as quick as it came.

Last night I made a big ol' journal entry only to have it disappear when I tried to post.  One thing I remember talking about was an incident that happened yesterday.  I was making out a list of symptoms and concerns for my doctor (as not to forget anything) and I had to ask my husband how to spell "unprovoked".  Mind you, I won 2 spelling bees as a child.  I had to ask my husband THREE times to repeat himself because all I heard was noise.  I could not make out what he was saying.  I spelled out "u-n-p-r-o...." and couldn't figure the rest.  I was waiting for my husband to say "t" somewhere in there.  Then it's like I came to or "woke up" in a way and just stared at the paper in disbelief.  I asked my husband, "How did I NOT know how to spell that just now?".  He just gave a bewildered look.  Frightening **** happening.
