Another night of agony

Jan 06, 2009 - 3 comments





leg pain





First of all, I'm sick of taking meds.  I'm also sick of night time.  Since my ALIF, I've had terrible issues sleeping.  I'm also experiencing so much leg pain in my left leg, that it's impossible to get comfortable.  

I just took my night time drug cocktail.  What I hate is when the Zanaflex I'm taking kicks in and I'm not ready to go to sleep.  It makes me crazy dizzy, and I feel my body fighting the sleep off.  I also hate waking up from this drug.  I feel like ****.  

I go back to the Dr again on Thursday to try and figure out what is going on with my left leg.  I think it's a pinched nerve or a muscle that's shortened due to my surgery.  I'm not sure what to make of it honestly, I just know I want it to go away!!!

Wish me luck!

I wish for you God's hand to heal you or at least intelligence from the doctor. I go to yet another new one next week. I've been in pain 3 1/2 years and I hate taking meds. I was an exercise, health nut my whole adult life. This episode is like a part of me is gone and it hurts physically and emotionally. The jobs are scarse as it is and I am limited. I know I have to depend on God and need a miracle in my home. Let us know how you make out. I will pray right now for you.

Thank you scaredmom330 and Dylan465 for your thoughts and prayers.  I'm actually feeling a touch better today, but with each day comes a new challenge.  Again, I'm just sick of taking meds to survive.  My poor liver and kidneys!  

Dylan, I pray that God does heal me.  I know there are challenges for a reason in life, but this one is really pushing me.  I'm relying heavily on the power of prayer right now, so thank you all for your prayers!
