Feeling irritated πŸ˜ͺ

Aug 01, 2017 6:54 PM

Hi every one I just need a vent really.
I'm struggling at the moment I feel so irritated I can't do anything because of pain, I haven't been able to wash in days witch is getting me down and I just can't do anything πŸ™„

And it's just one thing after another I was in a big flair then came out of that then I fell down the stairs so now I'm in another big flair!

Thanks for reading my vent sorry for being so negative just had a bad couple of weeks!

I hope everyone else is doing good 😊

Hi I'm
New in this but just wanted to say I feel exactly the same I'm so frustrated that fybro has ruined my once extremely active life and reduced me to the saying "let's see how I feel at ..... time" Wednesday my kids or friends want to do something 😒I can't say yes straight away as don't know from 1 minute to next if I'll be able to do it or if fybro will win again.

Hang in there don't let it beat you I'm not keep fighting!! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

I just got told by a "Dr." Of PT that scientifically the pain is only in my head and I need to start visualizing my way to getting off all my bad medicine and into a pain free world. He will be calling me with the name of a visualization specialist who I can make an appointment with. That her positive visions and oils, herbs and incense will get me off the morphine and norco and all the other drugs I don't really need if I just retrain my brain to understand that nothing really hurts like I think it does. .....

1. 6 car accidents. ...hard to dream them away.

2. 5 concussions, yup, they are all in my head.

3. Stroke in April has left me with things I'm not sure if visions will help.

4. Really don't want all her...medicines (?)... around my service dog.

5. Every time we try to get rid of my pain meds, the pain sends my heart into AFib.

Wonder if I can meet her in the ER parking lot to get rid of all my meds....

Oh, forgot to tell you, I was sent to see him by my pain management Dr because about 6 months ago I had surgery on my right knee and right shoulder exactly 2 weeks apart and it's been really painful using my new walker. At the end, he adjusted my handle heights and sent me out the door with a promise to get me her number and printouts of exercises that if I do 20 min a day, I'll be so much better.
Oh, yeah, fibromyalgia is a fake pain my brain has come up with. ....

Aug 08, 2017 8:49 AM

@ElentraVitra Wow 😳 I hate it when doctors tell me that they can fix my pain the only thing I need to do is think positive! Sorry to hear you have got so much going on I hope it all goes really well πŸ’•

Aug 08, 2017 8:56 AM

Thanks I really appreciate it. Most of my Dr are great. Just this guy and his snap decision that he knew me by my med list.

Aug 08, 2017 9:17 AM

Ugh so many doctors judge you before they even meet you!

Aug 08, 2017 9:36 AM

If they only had to live in our skin!!!!!😑😑😑😑

Aug 08, 2017 9:41 AM

Oh my gosh...this is freaking unbelievable!! This guy should be put in a nut house and have his license revolved at the very least if not put in jail for malpractice!! This is like organized medical torture...not treatment...I'm so so sorry you had to deal with his lunacy!

Aug 08, 2017 1:54 PM

Get a new PT!! Visualization can help to a degree but it will NOT take away ALL your pain. I'd kick that person then tell them to visualize that the pain isn't there!😀😬

Aug 08, 2017 6:31 PM

Lol he told me pain receptors are for when you have something like a broken so that you don't walk on it....and that skin doesn't really hurt, it's because your brain says it hurts. Pppft! With my fibro, before my pain mgn got it under control, you couldn't hug me, touch my face and lord help the person who grabs my arm. Yet according to him, I just need to put my mind in a beautiful place. ....

Aug 09, 2017 9:20 AM

Omg... you fell! So sorry! Sometimes when no one is home and my legs hurt really bad I will crawl to the bathroom. Or wait until someone comes home. I'm really fearful of falling. I fell in May I was walking to the kitchen got lightheaded from the pain hit my head on the sharp corner of my living room wall. Fortunately my husband was home and got me to the hospital. It was a combination of exhaustion, pain, and low blood pressure. I had to get 4 stitches in my eyebrow.

Aug 09, 2017 9:49 AM

@ElentraVitra. The pain is real . My hubby tells me it's in my head as well. Trust me that doesn't end well πŸ€” your pain is not in your head unless you have a headache πŸ€—πŸ€— Maybe this visualization specialist can help you . I prey they can. I took myself off most my meds a few years back .

But my meds was not for pain so Maybe it's different. Anyways
Sending prayers your way 😊😊

((Gentle hugs)) please keep us posted.

Aug 09, 2017 9:52 AM

@Littlelola yes too many Doctors and also people in general judges before meeting us . So they paint this image in there heads that is not true . I like the old saying ""Don't judge a book by its cover "
I am not sure who said it but it's a great one πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Aug 09, 2017 11:48 AM

Yep your right WesterngirlπŸ€— MochaBarbee sorry to hear you fell, Unfortunately I was at the top of the stairs so made it the whole way down 😩 I'm ok now and didn't hurt myself too bad, I hope you have managed to get some sleepπŸ’•

Go to a visualization doctor???? I'm sorry but in my opinion that's a waste of time. When I'm in severe pain trying to think of a beautiful place is utter nonsense. I'm to busy crying and praying! He has to be a nutt job! I would change doctors immediately. I would never go back to.him again! When I was pregnant, I went to the group that show you how to relax and breathe when having laboring contractions. I was told to bring calming music and a nice soft pillow. When I had my laboring c contractions that stuff when out the window. I couldn't think (about anything other then the horrific pain) and I definitely wasn't relaxed. I couldn't get myself under control until I received the pain medication shot. The pain is quite real and most of the time my medication don't work when I'm having a flare. Thinking of a beautiful place while I'm in
extreme overwhelming mind wrenching pain obviously wouldn't work. I can't imagine that I don't have pain when do....that makes zero sense. To tell someone, try doing that is absolutely insane.
