It's been a while but I'm finally getting some where
Oh My Gosh it's been about six weeks since I last left a post on here. I've been doing not okay. The Rheumy said that he couldn't find anything wrong with me. I've been in so much pain that I haven't left the house for two weeks after that. Then I thought to myself maybe it's me not getting the sunshine and vitamin d that's making me icky. Well the walks were nice with my sons and Zoey (our goldie dog) Then something that was SO scary happened to me Friday the 2nd of this month. I was taking a bath, then I had this pain so horrible in my feet I couldn't touch the bottom of the tub. The pain then radiated up my legs and then I couldn't move them. I was paralyzed from the waist down. My husband had to come into the bathroom and literally throw one leg at a time out of the tub, dry me off, and dress all while I was bawling and panicking. (My husband really got my goat because he was so calm and was telling me every-thing's okay. You'll be fine) About 40 to 50 minutes later my legs got movement back into them. It still felt like I was carrying lead weights on my legs. So yesterday I went back to my kids' doctor (since he was the only doctor I've talked to that actually listened to me) I told him what had happened and that the feeling of the lead weights was still there and that the feeling of fire was going through my arms and hands, my thighs and feet, and my face. Both my hands, legs and feet had edema on them. He told me that we're going to try a Neurologist next. He was so concerned I've got my appointment tomorrow morning. Hopefully there is going to be an answer to this. This is going to sound bad... I hope it does turn out to be lupus, like he thought it was at first. (before I saw the rheumy with no bedside manners) I hope it has nothing to do with my nervous system.
To who ever reads this Thank you for letting me get it all out. I'm scared, angry and anxious all at the same time.
