Joppette Posted April 22, 2010 Share Posted April 22, 2010 I hate this. I've been crying for the last two hours, and I hate it. I'm not one to dwell on the negative. My lung cancer taught me to totally focus on the positive. But I just don't get what I am going through right now, and am so tired I can't think straight. My husband woke me up an hour ago, as I was screaming. Once I woke up, I realized that my muscles were spasming in a horrific way, and I could not stand it. He got wet, hot towels and wrapped them around the muscles, which helped. Then he got heat pads that are self adhesive, and wrapped them around the affected areas. Thank you my sweetie. It was horrific. I was crying so loud, and in so much pain. Once I woke up fully, I took a Norflex muscle relaxer, and am hoping that will help me to fall back asleep. I just wish my doctors could tell me what is going on. This is torture! My regular doctor said my blood tests showed something not normal, but that he did not have the education to diagnose the problem. He wanted me to take the muscle relaxers for a couple of weeks to see if that helped, and then he'd schedule me with a Neurologist. Well, it's 2:04AM here, and he will be getting a call from me tomorrow. I need answers. Yesterday I woke up to rib muscles totally spasming, and took a muscle relaxer for it, which did nothing. There is something more going on. I am usually a positive person, but this issue is breaking me down in a big way. I'm sorry for this, I do not want to be so sad, but right now I am at my wits end. What is this? I just need answers, and hope for the future. If this continues, I will have to resign myself to a wheelchair. Sad, and frustrated.
