Hi all, it's 2.33 in the morning and my demon is keeping me awake yet again :shock: :shock: I was first diagnosed with cs when i was 26yrs old, local GP treated me for a frozen shoulder at the time but as it lasted 18months he decided to send me for X-ray which then lead to MRI = cs diagnoses. with the help of medication my demond slept for a few years with only an occasional flare up that would last for a couple of weeks. In my mid 30's it raised it's ugly head again :x a little worse than the first flare up, thought i was going insane with the pain and general overall affect this condition was having on my life. yet another MRI showed a worsening, affecting c4,5,6. spent a small fortune on acupuncture that did help with pain relief and helped me to relax. I went to see a master who taut acupuncture in the next village, sadly he has past now. 5yrs ago yet another flare up, more tablets, more scans, more physio, more ortho consultants. 6 months ago it started again, OMG just cut my right arm off and my head!!!in oct 09 another MRI showed c4,5,6,7 T1,2 affected, I work in OT in my local Hosyi and have lots of support from my bosses and colleagues which has been fab and for that i am most humbled. this time my demon has given me to much to bare :evil: the norm of pain constant head aches, numbness, pins & needles, twitching, sleepless nights, fatigued. OMG I could go on and on, but you all know the story.Awaiting to see another ortho consultant in DEC 09, God help he is more sympathetic than the others, lol... :roll: I feel it may be time to try some thing more invasive than tens, medication, acu, neck pillows, yoga, tears and screaming. I cant believe I only found this site today after my boss said \"enough lovely, go home and rest\". I have been reading ppl's stories and experiences all afternoon and to be honest, I have found... not a solution or physical relief but emotional relief, comradeship, all knowing how it feels empathy. for that I am soooooooooo great full. My husband has been disabled for many years through a skeletore malfunction, so is sooo in tune with my emotional state, I could cry for Wales on a bad day. :oops: :oops: lol. I look forward to making some friendships, comrades and empathises now I have found you. take good care all. xxMacca
