Hi everyone, hope you all are feeling good today,
I’m just wondering what on earth I can do now to get some support, or something - I can’t think straight at the moment. I’ve just stopped crying hysterically and I’m feeling lost and a bit alone to try and cope with things after getting the most horrific neuropathic pains down my left arm from shoulder to fingertips and radiating round to the middle of my back and across my stomach. I have been really ill with these pains since before Christmas and have had emergency doctors out who increased my Pregabalin dosage plus prescribed Codene. I have hardly been able to wash (I really hate to admit this as I feel awful) or wash my hair because everytime I try, these pains just double me up and take my breath away. I was feeling great this morning and got everything ready for a bath but no; I reached out for something and bam!
I feel like life is passing me by and the days are merging into one long chore. I’ve been trawling the web for some pointers as to what help is available to me but my head’s full of cotton wool, It would be nice if someone could help me with my hair and to get a shower at least, just this once. Or maybe I’m gonna have to face up to being like this permanently. I see my neurologist next month, do you think she can offer any help?
Sorry to be so depressing!
