Hey all my F4 Tribe!! F4 tribe… I kind of like that (Fit For Fighting Fibro Tribe)
Sooo I wanted to update you guys on what’s going on.
First, I am feeling sooo much better pain wise. Thank you all for praying for me!! Today has been a fairly good day!! I am still having some issues with my fingers and hands so this will be a “to the point blog”.
Today I went the see my rheumatologist/pain doctor for my check-up. It was an ok visit💁🏾♀️. We have taken me off of quite a few meds! So you know I am thrilled!!!! He is trying out a new sleep med because I am not sleeping and he feels the other one is what is making me have those dizzy/fall out moments. So now to the unfunny fun part….. cue eventful scary music… dun dun duuuuunnnnn!!!
I got injections today! 8 of them! EIGHT FREAKING SHOTS! Y’all it was awful!!! Ny doctor gave me the choice of getting them in my knees or my back and butt. Of course I chose the latter because that’s where my pain has been lately. He gave me the facts of being pain free by the weekend and lasting up to 2 months! UHHH WHAT?!? Pain free for two whole months? Yeahhh buddy sign me up! Now what I didn’t know is how painful they would be. Like I thought I have bursitis on 2 bones under my butt 🤦🏾♀️. So I got shots in BOTH areas. Yes that’s through the skin on my cheek to my bone… TWICE! These will start to work in 3 days! Pain free by the weekend! That is what I kept saying to get through the shots.
Next problem area! This one hasn’t changed since last time. That’s the pulled muscles/tendons in my lower back. Ok so he finished the two awful shots IN MY ASS (sorry Moma) then says ok turn over on your stomach. Me: umm what? Why? It’s not over? No thanks?” Yes I acted up a tad. Long story short, I got 6 more shots in my lower back. I ripped a hole in the paper they line the beds with by squeezing it so tight. Sooo not ok! I didn’t scream out though like I did with the first two but I did think “why is he still going”. It was awful!!! I cried when I got to to the car lol. So after being given the shots the back of my head started hurting and I became a little too “relaxed” but in a bad way. So I asked him was that normal? He said people feel that way during 2 situations: 1- when scared and 2- when in extreme pain. Well 🤷🏾♀️ 2/2! I was scared and it was painful!!
Ok!!! I am home in bed while listening to my professor talk. I may be sleepy but I will be educated 😂😂. My body and mind are both tired! So I am going to try and sleep.
