YUP! Our pain tolerance (INTOLERANCE!) goes down a few notches when we have an autoimmune disease. I read about it in an article from Cleveland Clinic. Also ROB, I DO KNOW since we have MS as well, that since our myelinsheath(im not sure if thats spelled right) is getting destroyed OUR nerves are more sensitive to EVERYTHING due to being more exposed. We dont have that protective coating like someone without MS. LUCKY US HUH! I know i have NEVER been more SENSITIVE to pain and/or anything else in my life! Put it this way, when i go in for blood work I WALK in BUT Im ALWAYS WHEELED OUT! Pale as hell and my hair is drenched with sweat! My blood pressure always drops to 80 (i cant remember the bottom # LOL) over something and they are having to flip me upside down in the bed! Then i get home and pull the band aid off and i already have a BIG BRUISE! No woo hoo to THAT!
We Live in a MORTAL, FRAIL, IMPERFECT world in which the word "FAIR" doesn't always apply.Make EVERY MOMENT COUNT with the ones you LOVE because it can end in the blink of an eye. Love, Jeannette
