Hello i was diagnosied with pa in feb 2011, at the same time the hospital said i had degeneration of the spinal cord.
I am on b12 injections every three months and take folic acid 5mg one aday, ferrous fumarate 305mg twice a day. i have also had a bout of rosacea which cream help so i no longer look like a spotty teenager
I am unable to tolerate wheat (causes me pain, and rushing to the loo) i have recently had a procedure(sorry cant think of the name ) going in from the botton to investigate IBS.
My main concern is the pain i get across my shoulders,hands and neck. It last fpor about 15-20 mins then painkillers kick in, i am left with hand weakness and a awkward feeling of where to put my arms? Sometimes i dont get the pain just the numb hands, i am constantly dropping things and writing with a pen is getting harder, its as if my hand forgets to hold on to it this then makes me very tired that all i can do is sit down
I have been to the doc several occasions but he just draws a diagram of the spine and tells me its my posture?
I feel more of a nusiance going to the doc but wnt the arms to be normal and pain free, i want my life back as i have to rely on my husband even to open my toddlers beaker. My husband even understand me when i get words back to front, which is irrating but also funny.
Is this familiar with someone else out there, would be nice to have someone understand when i say my arms are having a bad day xxx
