Good day! I'm a "newbie" here & have a question for you all. Thank you in advance for reading and possibly providing some wise words...
Well I have come to a place in my life where I thought I had del with the major frustrations of pain, being beyond tired and am almost over the 'grouchyness' (I say being over the grouchyness, because I have reached a point in my life that if I keep letting all the effects that EDS, POTS, MCAD, FIBRO, etc, not only would the people I love would get sick of my 'tube but I certainly would too! In saying all this...I am frustrated and am tires of this "ripping" pain and Charlie horses affecting my one leg especially. I'm getting quite frustrated with not knowing what is going on. I have had an ultrasound on it, I've been to physio, I do my stretches at home, I even choke down a banana for the potassium in it. To no avail..nothing. And if I am not careful when I turn or stretch my leg, it feels as though the muscle is literally ripping! No bruises to follow, no veins have burst. It's been going on for about two years now. Jumping out of bed crying(very loudly) half awake because there it is again...Mr Charlie Horse has made his almost nightly visit. YesterdayI was reaching for something and I extended my leg (a bit much I guess) as I felt the RIP!! The worst one yet! I was sure that the outcome of the intense ripping pain, there would definitely be a mark of some sort. But..nope! I had one dr decide for me that this was only fibro and decided that she really wasn't interested in helping me in any sort of medical way. My NP is wonderful! She has tried to help figure it out..but we are at a lull. Has anyone ever heard or had the misfortune of havingthis happen to them? If so..do you have any answers?
Thank you all!
