Yesterday I went to the Rheumatologist. I was in the most horrid pain! I could barely walk. The pain I feel in my right arm has spread to other concentrated areas including my legs and my other arm. I think I’m crippled. I haven’t been sleeping. I try things that help for a little bit, then all I do is cry. It sucks.
The Rheumatologist wrote me a prescription for a muscle relaxer and I took that last night for the first time. It seemed to help some. I also have an appointment with a new Neurologist. I don’t think the other one was willing to search for the underlying Neurological issue that we believe exists.
The Rheumatologist mentioned that the Neurologist may have me do a nerve study. I don’t really know what that is, but it sounds painful and expensive. Speaking of expensive, are you voting for me? I really could use this. The medical bills are insane and with all the specialist appointments, we’re struggling. Thank you to all those that continue to vote for me daily!
I think next week I am going to take a day and sit my crippled ass down at the medicaid office and see what can be done to help us. I need so many tests and doctors appointments and with me not working, I need help. I paid the money in, so you would think that it would be there for times like this. Instead I am sure my funds are being used on some illegal citizen or a drug addict meth head. I was already told we do not qualify for indigent health care. We can pay our bills so we are not poor enough…they told me a family of 5 has to bring in LESS than $700 a month. Seriously.
I posted this photo the other day, but I am going to use it as my “wordless” Wednesday because it makes me smile.
