For weeks, it has felt that my body is slowly going "senile". The pain are no longer in my hips, but now have branched to constantly hurt throughout my entire body. I had no relief, and my doctor told me I did not need to go to the ER. I am now lying in bed, crying, wanting answers. I hurt so much and it won't stop. I slept 2.5 hours this morning, staying up all night in pain. I told them I had numbness in half my body, and fluctuating pain. I don't know what to do. Nothing relieves the pain.....
I am not allowed to go to the ER
My dad says i need to hold it together until tomorrow. If i still hurt tomorrow, I think I am going to demand to go to the Hospital and stay there until I have relief.
My insurance will not cover it if I go. and everyone in my house wants me to wait until tomorrow.
Suzanne - awwww! I feel your pain (no pun intended!) Actually, that was intentional as I was throwing in a little lame humor & hug your way. But I recently went 43 hrs without sleep because of the excruciating pain. I was told by a family member don’t bother to go into the ER because I’m on pain pills & they’ll think I’m an addict just trying to score more meds. I didn’t know the exact reason why you can’t go tonight, but I just hope nobody (I.e. your doctor) is making you feel guilty or that you’re exaggerating.
Lovett - can the ER do something for you if your own meds aren’t helping?
Good luck tomorrow, Suzanne! I hope your doctor prescribes something to help at night. Since that 43 hr episode, I’ve been prescribed Baclofen - a muscle relaxer - and it does help some with sleep. Hang in there, sweetie !!
They say its not an emergency, so they wont cover it
I believe I am allergic to Epsom salt, but I am laying down right now. I am anxious for it to be 8am already.
I have had 2.5 hours of sleep in the last 48hours. I cannot go due to insurance issues. They are open at 8am when we can call. Thank you all for the support!
Suzanne - I’m still learning how to navigate this system. I’m sorry - I read why you can’t go tonight to the ER! What the hell!? Oh - what’s the rules for typing cuss words on here? Anyhow, I hope you find some peaceful sleep. Hopefully you can find something to help distract you somewhat. Try to have a good night. I’ll be thinking of you!
That’s bs that it’s not deemed an emergency! Oh, that makes me so mad! Do you have an advice nurse you can call? Maybe they’ll tell you it’s ok to take a Tylenol PM. Ugh! Now when I still have a bad night & it’s too late to take a muscle relaxer because I have work the next day, I draw! I actually started to draw one night back abt 4 months ago; I never knew I could do a descent job of it. So I’ll do a one page “story line” and have it ready for my little boy to see in the a.m. But that’s my little secret I do when I’m in so much pain. Or I send an abundance of messages to Suzanne! Lol!
lol I am a writer and drawer myself, but my mind is too distracted and cannot focus, otherwise I would haha. But thank you for the advice
Good morning. It’s 4am & just thinking 4 more hours for you. I slept for about 3 1/2 hours last night so hope this “energy” lasts throughout the work day. I hope you found some sleep and/or relief and this message finds you in good spirits this morning!
I hope that you get into the Doctor this morning. Lack of sleep can make you pain seem all that worse. You are in my prayers and hope you get some releif soon. Please keep us posted. Hugs
I did end up sleeping and got to see my doctor today! I have a MRI next week for my brain because meds aren't working. I am now on four meds all together and taking 8 pills a day now.
Thank you so much <3
I'm sorry this is happening to you. When I flare up nothing and I mean nothing will help with the pain. All I do is cry too. For about two months I went with about 2-3 hours of broken sleep a night. It was horrible. I commented on your other post and for the non flare up days flexeril really helps. It's a muscle relaxer. I've been getting random sharp pains in my body when I'm sleeping and it's mostly in my hips. It's the worst pain ever. Being tired all the time sucks but theirs nothing we can really do about that. I do hope you are getting the proper treatment you need. Also, my joints lock up on me super easy. I hope that doesn't happen to you. Good look with it all. I'm here for you. :)
Thank you :)
did you ever get to see a Dr? If so were they able to help? Just checking in to see how you are feeling. Hope you have been able to get some sleep. Hugs
