How are you feeling today..

Hi everyone, how is your weekend going for you. I hope your all doing better than me 😐

Very very poorly today. I suffer among other things something called Intercostal Neuralgia. I had a few warning signs the other day. This morning I'm unable to get out of bed. The pain in the rib area makes breathing very difficult and very very painful. Even eating more than a few bites hurts.

If I was asked to describe it. I would say it feels like a cross between pleurisy and asthma.

All I can do is keep as still as possible and place ice packs on the area to reduce the burning pain.

Been here with it so many times over the years but it still does not make it any easier to deal with. Especially when struggling to breath. So it's a bed day for me I'm afraid.

Does anyone else suffer with this or something similar?

I hope everyone else as a good weekend xx

Claire, your guilty secret is safe with me. My lips are sealed 🀐🀣 oh I was a big fan of him back in my day old snake hips lol

I wish you luck for Tuesday. Your braver than me. I'm so phobic with anything to do with doctors, hospitals tests. Hence some of the reasons I can take medication.

Well you enjoy your evening and forget all about Tuesday. There will be time enough to worry about that on the day πŸ€—πŸ€—

Thanks momo stay in contact let me no how yr getting on love xx 😚

Hi

How are you feeling this morning? Good luck for Tuesday. Last one I had i asked for more sedation than I'd had before , they did as I asked, it was much better. Love and hugs Lynne xxxx

Hi Lynne thank you so much for asking, I'm not to bad today just worrying about Tuesday but now that you have said about extra sedation I might ask because I suffer with depression and anxiety so they may if I ask, just considering what to make for tea later I think it's going to be mince and tatties on this cold miserable day, how are you today love xxx

So so, thank you for asking. Just going back to bed for an hour . Love and hugs Lynne xxxx
