I am 56 years old. I have been in severe pain, back, neck, hips, legs, feet, hands, since 2009. Was going to a pain doctor, but medicine did not help, he said it was not Fibromyalgia, had no pressure points. He finally said there was nothing he could do! I try to exercise, but ankles hurt so bad it is hard. Lately the pain is getting worse. I am so sensitive to meds, I can not take many with out severe reaction. I push past it when I can, rest when I need to. Use a wheelchair most times when out. Now I get tingly and numbness in feet, hands and face. Doctors do not know what's wrong and do not know how to treat it. I have decided to go to school online to get a MA in New Media Journalism and try and start my own Freelance Writing out of my home. Right now on Disability and Medicare. So is my husband. But with doctor bills we can not survive only on Social Security, we do not qualify for food stamps and our state will not expand Medicaid, if they did we would qualify and we would not pay anything in medical bills. Stress does not help any!
