I've always shied away from blogging as I may just end up having a constant moan about things - so here goes! Nearly two years ago I started with tingling in my feet - like my socks were scrunched up and now - well, I have chronic pain in my feet and legs and hands. Shooting nerve pain in my legs and arms and such sensitivity in my skin that I never thought was possible - drying after a shower or using paper towels after hand washing sets those nerve endings a-jangling! The pain cannot be seen and apart from limping when I walk and the odd wince or three no-one in the outside world knows that I am in constant pain/discomfort. I hold down a job - part-time - and that's so I can get some rest inbetween, though I must admit that the words 'pace yourself' is like anathema to me! Been waiting for a nerve biopsy since March - as the the hospital up here in Scotland that does the biopsy can't get their act together with the hospital in London that examines it. Put on Duloxetine by the pain clinic and dose doubled as the depression came back - wallop - as I had to come off the Citalopram. I feel that I want to shout and tell the world that I bloody well HURT like crazy and I'm fed up with it. There, I did warn you that it would turn into a moan - sorry everyone. Anyway, moan over, but just wondered if anyone else on here felt like me or if I was just having a pooh of a day? Love to everyone and happy Sunday x x
