I Hate Summer

I’m still in a walking boot but hopefully not for long. After my last entry on this blog I had to send a message to the PA to ask if it was normal for the boot to hurt so much and for the swelling to get worse. They assured me it was but then they told me they were sending me to get a MRI and referring me to the doctor the PA I saw was under. Kind of sounds like maybe it wasn’t so normal… haha. The MRI showed that I had torn a ligament and that I gave myself a bone bruise. I had no idea you could do that but apparently it is one step away from a fracture. That bone bruise is what made the MRI hurt a lot though. I had to keep my foot still for 60 minutes while it was being held straight and the pressure of the things holding it in place was really causing that bone bruise to scream pain. I came out of that MRI in a cold sweat. haha

The doctor wanted me to wear the boot for three more weeks after seeing him. I see him again this coming Monday. He will decide then if I can start Physical Therapy. I hope to be walking normal by the end of August. We shall see! I’m very sick of this limping around thing.

In other news….

Welcome to Hell

Ops went a whole month with no update. 

Well, I have good reason. It has been kind of rough these past few weeks. The lumbar puncture I went through put me out of commission for almost two weeks. The puncture itself wasn’t so bad but the after effect was horrible. I’ve had bad headaches before but nothing like what this lumbar puncture gave me.

The good news is I have no current inflammation going on in my spinal fluid. So that means no MS yay! Thank the lord, that made me nervous. Bad news to all this means I’m still a fibromyalgia patient with no real answers as to why I’m in so much pain and no good way to treat it.
