I have not posted on the forum for quite awhile but frequently review what members are sharing. I am just feeling in the "frozen" state right now. Briefly I have had lumbar pain since I retired in 2016, and in fact, that event triggered a lot of other medical and financial struggles. I now have bilateral hip pain and leg muscle pain. And a frozen shoulder. Oh and constant balance problems. It basically is constant and just a matter of degree. Also have migraines for many years. It is no use seeing more physicians as I have done that: orthopedics, rheumatology, spinal MD's ENT - you name it. Been through all the x-rays and MRI's. Basically I have been told I have bulging discs at all lumbar vertebrae and foraminal compromise or narrowing - cant recall exact description. And, of course, they want me to have an epidural which thus far I have refused. We all know what they will suggest next when that fails. Hip pain is due to mild bursitis - no other big issues on MRI. I just had a cardiac ablation in April to try to correct an rhythm problem. Cataract surgery coming up in August. Welcome to the 70th decade. This is not the retirement I had planned! I saw Dr. Schubiner last June and he assured me I had TMS. I have been skyping with one of the PCC interns x 6 months and can see progress emotionally but can't make any improvement physically in the pain. The two big stressors in my life (aside from the medical stuff that comes sometimes with being 70) are I am trying to get my house ready to sell and can only go so fast with that process. And, I am absolutely financially drained from not being able to work part-time which was my plan when I retired in 2016. I am terrified to try to work again because I feel so crappy most of the time - don't know if I can even get or hold a job. So, should I go toward the fear/anxiety that is the most troublesome, and see if that helps me?? I would love to walk off some of this anxiety and fear but like yesterday, I walked somewhere between 1/4 - 1/2 mile and that was my limit. My back and legs hurt so much I have to stop. Thanks if you got this far. Bless you !
