Omg... the pain is intense

My back, hips, and legs hurt SOOOOOO much today. It doesn't help that I woke up with a splitting headache, too. As it is, headaches are unusual for me. But when they do occur, they're BAD. I just want the pain to stop. My doctor is referring me to a pain management specialist, but I have to wait until the results of my spine MRI come in first..... and I haven't even had the MRI done yet because they're supposed to call me to set up an appointment. 😭

I'm so sorry Bluegypsea! Take something for your headache and take a Epsom salt soak bath, if you can. Then do slow deep breathing to try and relax the muscles. If they're tight they're clamping the nerves causing pain. Also call the docs office about the MRI and see if they can get a move on. If you have neck disc issues (like me) you could be having cervicogenic headaches. Another community member told me about them and I had to research it. When I get them they sometimes trigger migraines. Hugs & prayers your headache goes away and your all-over pain reduces some for you to cope better! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Blue 🌹 i hope u find some relief soon hunni, just breathe and ease ur stress levels as there is a direct correlation between stress & pain. 🌹

That being said... i had my mris done on a sunday after they called me to arrange the appointment. I was surprised but they are so swamped because of the demand for such an excellent diagnostic tool! So there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Flappy gave u great advice... and if poss call the mri unit urself to ask them... they were always so helpful to me. I wish for u the same Blue 🌹

I get terrible trigeminal neuralgia so i can understand how tough it is with the added pain... we are all here for u sweetie... just shout if u need us ok

πŸ˜™someone is always hereπŸ˜™
