Referral pain is still pain that has become chronic over time. Being in constant pain is so tiring. When I wake I hurt and I am sore and swollen in my hands and my arms hurt; and this continues all day, right up until I go to bed. My pain level from one to ten is a 5 when I wake up, 7 by noon and 10+ by bedtime.
My doctor's job right now is trying to pinpoint where the pain and inflammation is starting from and try to correct it or control it at least. That is what we are doing now, managing the pain with therapies and medications. I grow my own medicine's and sometimes I do take it, but it tastes awful. I have been encouraged by my massage therapist to ask my neurologist or family doctor to refer me to a Rheumatologist because I already have some of the markers for Fibromyalgia, this does run in my family, so I have learned recently. I am not a good candidate for surgery thanks to the osteoarthritis that is running rampant in my spine. I hope to get some better answers instead of guesses and maybes soon. I am confident that this pain will not consume me and I am grateful for my spiritual work. Working with the gods and goddesses helps me cope.
Have a great day.
