Afraid to jynx myself...

Hey everyone.. Hope that you are all having a peaceful and less painful day. I got up this morning and for about 10 seconds thought I was dead because I felt nothing... Another few seconds went by and the pain crept in but not as bad as normal. I've been carrying a consistent pain level of 8-8.5 and today it's actually like 6.5!!!! I don't want this to go away because it's tolerable and I actually feel pretty decent. I can't remember last time I had a day like this... I'll have to mark the calendar!! I pray ALL of you have a day(s) of relief.

That's great Alwayz!! Glad to hear that! Any improvement in pain is a win! For myself I took 100mg of Tramadol the last two nights before bed and my Costcochrronditis is better this am as well. I'm not sure if that's why or if it was just the end of the attack but I'll take it.

I'm glad for both of you! Whatever's wrong causing my SOB is keeping me down. I saw the Allergy/Asthma doc yesterday and he said its not my lung function, so today I had to see the cardiologist. He did an EKG & US and said they look ok, but he put me on nitro patches and I have to have a chemical stress test. On the way home my husband reached over and grabbed my hand and said, "Don't you have a heart attack and die on me!" 💏 He's a gem!!! I just hope they find out soon because its getting worse and I feel like crap.

I'm sending all good vibes your way Flappys!

Thank you. I need it! My ENTs going to scope my throat and look at my vocal cords next week, to see if they're not opening & closing or what. I sound like a squeaky mouse!

Squeaky mouse is better than a hairy ogre... Lol unfortunately I'm the later

Lol I'd be the hairless ogre because I'm losing hair 🐀

Thanks Oregon!! I'll take it too. I'm grateful for the short break and I do mean short as this morning my pain level is back up at 8.5. Oh well, it is what it is, right?
FlappsyLady I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling so poorly. By the way, interesting you mentioned your hair because mine is falling out in droves. I have thyroid issues (meaning I don't have one any more) along with all the other stuff I have but when I'm overly stressed, my hair starts to fall out. I will pray for you that you feel better and that they find resolution to whatever is causing you to feel worse than usual. I am
Glad that I met you here.. You are a very kind person and I always appreciate your willingness to help and share. God Bless you, and I hope your day brings some peace and less pain.

I feel blessed to have met you AlwayZ, and everyone on here. I no longer feel so alone with no one to talk to. God bless you too! I pray God brings blessings to each & everyone else too.
