Well....yesterday was hell. All my burning pain came back in my leg and lower back after more than a week. I said to myself...*bleep* it! Im going to distract myself any way I can and try to ignore this pain that makes me want to saw my leg off. Off I went to watch American Idol and the pain got so bad I decided I was going to dance all around the living room like a maniac (flashdance flashback ha!) I danced and danced and threw myself all over the place and when I came to a stop I accessed my pain level to see what horrible damage I had done to my spine. Hmmm....pain was still there......but not ANY WORSE!!!! I continued to watch the show and the pain even disappeared for a little bit at one point. It came back again so I decided to retire to bed for the night (after ranting & raving to my husband about some emotional issues that I felt I needed to release about my sister) Well......12:40am Im woken up with nerve pain ALL over my body.....back, legs, feet, arms, hands and I was going into a panic attack and started to cry. This was my night on & off waking up with excrutiating back pain and nerve pain every hour. Since the start of this TMS nightmare I have NEVER been woken up due to the pain. Have not had a panic attack or anxiety for years either. In the morning the nerve pain was gone but my upper back felt like I'd been run over several times by a tank. Anxiety level was quite a bit better but not gone. Dragged myself out of bed and straight to the pool where I proceeded to swim and swim and swim some more (all the time with awful pain in my toes and foot) By the time I got out of the pool the foot pain had reduced about 80% and still remains at that level. I have been sitting at my computer for 2 hours (unheard of just a week ago) Im going to keep myself as busy as possible and try not to limit my activities and refrain from heading to bed when the nerve pain hits. Oh and also, when I got out of the pool in the changeroom when I realized I had much less pain....I did a huge happy dance celebration throwing my arms up in the air laughing...I read its good to celebrate....it really felt good...onward & upward!
