mngirl Posted March 18, 2006 Report Share Posted March 18, 2006 It only took me 3 hrs to do, but I paid for it all day Sunday with being physically sick ALL DAY! If I got up to move even to go from one room to another, I started to sweat, then got lightheaded, then the nausea kicked in BIG TIME! It was awful. The bade part as well, I have had nerve issues in my right arm...well doing this only made it extremely painful. I was supposed to have a lidocaine infusion this past Monday, but we got 12 inches of snow overnight so the clinic called and cancelled my appt. I couldn't get an infusion until yesterday.My dr. also put me back on Lyrica to see if we could settle the pain with this new nerve med. I tried this back in Oct - I stopped eating for 3 weeks and then ended up in the hospital for 16 days. I took it for 2 nights (Tues and Wed) and I am alreaady having issues with eating. So, my dr. had me stop it already until Monday to see if I can get around the side effects at all. I am so afriad that I am not going to be able to handle this med. Back in Oct. it at least seemed like it was working even though I couldn't eat. Now I just can't handle the med. Which seems to be the case with a lot of stuff lately. I am afriad that my body is starting to fight everything or else it can't take it.Anyway...I just can't believe how my body reacted on Sunday. And then I have been exhausted all week. My dr. said that my body just can't do these things anymore. How sad is that?My work comp case at work is coming to a head too. They are stating that I am maximum medical improvement and are trying to have my restrictions set. That means that they could choose to accept and accomodate the restrictions or give me 90 days and let me go. If they do I have to find a new job, or aI can ask them to send me back to work. With my arm restrictions and all this POTS stuff, who is going to hire me? I can't type foe very long, can't lift, can't stand for any period of time or walk for very long. What in the heck am I supposed to take up as a career? I am going to apply for SSD. I am sure that at this stage of the game I will be rejected. But I think that if I lose my job I would qualify. I have this POTS stuff, Addison's and RSD or both my right and left arm as well as in my neck/head/shoulder. All of which cause me to be into the dr 3 times a week for some sort of treatment. Luckily that my dr. and I get along so well. At least he doesn't think I am crazy and he is trying to help me figure this all out and make sure that work and insurance companies pay for treatment and don't jerk me around. He is an awesome dr. I can't imagine ever losing him as my dr.Anyway...I am still feeling crappy...It just seems as if everything is slowly getting worse. ~Lisa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
