Just wanted to check in with everyone!!! I'm staying stable with my APS . I'm still having quite some nagging pain in my legs. My Primary Dr, doesn't seem to really investigate what is causing it. I'm 52 & he contributes it to getting old!! Really!!!! We have a lot of misuse of Drugs in our area. I understand that but he just tells me to deal with it!!! I suffer so badly done days & feel like I can't take the day!! I work a Full time job in accounting but when my work day ends, I just have to come home & go to bed!! Feel like I cheat my Family on quality time that I miss because of the pain. I don't know how I can convince my Dr to put me on some type of a maintenance drug. In the past I was rarely sick or ever had any reasons to be on any type of pain meds. I've been with the same Dr since I was 21. I really don't want to change Dr's but it's hard living with this day in & day out!!!! I really don't believe this is an age thing!!! It's almost an insult to me. I believe it's because the Dr's don't understand this illness & what all happens with it!!! Thanks for listening to me!! You all are the only support I have!!!!
