It's probably a spinal stimulator, Kaz! I've only heard ONE good thing about them in nearly 3 years I've been on BF! I cannot tolerate TENS, so it is doubtful this would do me any good! Even on low, it shoots me off the table, screaming!
Well, when it's this bad, going to bed is a BIG problem, sleeping on my back is murder, but my hips are getting much worse, and I can only stay on my side for a moment until that starts up, I see replacements there, especially in the right side!
So how do I do this? The only way I can sleep on my stomach is if I lay short ways across the bed, so my feet are not tucked under me, but that would never work, even in a king size bed with my husband in it!
I need one of those old time Chiropractor tables, that raise up, and are in adjustable segments, those I can sleep face down on! Those bones are cracking like someone playing a wood block! UGH! Has the SI joints kicked up too! Gonna be a morphine night, maybe weekend!
Tough thing is, I'm having my mom a dinner party Sunday, she turned 82 today! I ordered the cake, pick it up tomorrow at the grocery store, have about half of dinner already cooked, all of the S&P shakers filled, and working on setting the tables!
I know many are against using these drugs, but I'll tell you, it gets to the point that I am not fit to be around if it continues, I dread trying to sleep tonight, just dread it! I'm gonna have another hit of the Ethyl Chloride spray too, that may help for a little while!
See that's it, going through surgery only to get worse! I cannot imagine!
This is when I get those 'muscle attacks' as the Rheum calls them, they look like a seizure! Have already had 3 brain MRIs to rule out SLE or MS, or Epilepsy, but they are suspicious, have many symptoms!
Ah, here they come, I still have some 'juice' left in this body! Must be something in the reserve tank!
