~~~UPDATE~~~

I'm back. My mom got here as soon as I put in my last entry. She took me to the ER. I knew I should go and am glad I went. I wasn't feeling all of the pains until right after the paramedics left. My head was hurting and was more dizzy then I usually am. My left shoulder, hip and really my whole left leg was starting to give me a lot of pains. It was like when I was in a 'fender bender' years back and I had whiplash but didn't start to feel it until hours later. It wasn't busy at the ER....glad about that. The doctor I had was very nice and very thorough. He ordered x-rays and a cat scan. But he said before I leave for those tests, he wanted me to have two shots. One for for my swelling and the other was for the pains. The shots didn't take affect for awhile. The tests were painful to go through, but I always tell myself when I go through tests that hurt or take a long time, "This isn't going to last forever." That helps for me to get through them. It works. Mind over matter. The tests took about 1 & 1/2 hours. Great news....nothing is broken! Whew! He gave me a script for Vicodine. I'm to stay in bed and rest. Bummer! I'm just very grateful that I didn't break anything. One time this same thing happened to me...my right leg was numb when I stood up and didn't feel it, and when I picked my foot up to take a step, I fell on my foot and it folded in half! I broke my foot then! My mom and I went to get my script filled.....thats when the pain shot kicked in! So my mom went in and got it for me. I was is the van sick to my stomach and over heating. She came out and asked me if I wanted to go to G.I.V.E. to see if they had those one type of canes. I just said sure so I could get that done and go home to rest. They did have those canes, so I have them now and I also got a special chair to help with my legs and swelling. I can use the canes so much easier then the one I have been using. Thank you....you know who...for letting me know about them! Canadian cane. I feel more secure with walking. I have already taken my dose of Vicodine and the pain shot that I got.....I'm pretty much out of it right now. I need to eat as well. Thank you all for your support.....if you only knew what it means to me. God bless all of you!

make sure to work that broken fot and let everybody tend to you!  (I know....but do it anyway. *wink*)

Yay for pain killers.  They've been my best friend lately.  I'm glad it wasn't worse, but I am feeling bad for you....I'm guessing the next few days won't be pleasant..

Lisa,
Hope you are feeling calmer, getting some sleep or rest, too.  Lisa, never feel bad for calling the emergency people. That's why we have them!  And that's why you got your response thing.  People call them all the time!  Sometimes for critical things, but sometimes for silly things.  You needed to get checked ou!  I am glad your Mom helped talk you into it.  Boy, you are lucky not to have anything broken.  Take care and rest as you can this weekend.  Hope things imporve.  Keep posting when you can, and remember you are loved. Merry

what a lovely journal you have.  My mother also has fibromyalgia and in the winter of 97 was dx'd with Guillian Barre Syndrome. It has many of the same challenges as MS.  

You strike me as strong and beautiful person!
take care

So glad nothing was broken and they gave you some meds.  The ER doc I seen is a crackpot!  Ended up being there for 5 hrs. as they had 2 heart attacks come in after I had x-rays.  Waited 2.5 hrs. for results then he wouldn't even give me any pain meds.  He was a nice dr. except he wouldn't give me anything for pain and I was hurting so much I was in tears.  What a wasted trip!
Hugs,
D

You have given us all good news  I'm so happy you didn't break your hip or leg as I feared.  Thank God you found a nice doctor who helped you with the pain relief too.
Now just take it easy over the weekend and try not to worry about getting to folks journals...we're not going anywhere.  We will still be here chattering away waiting for you to come and join us when your better.
I hope your weekned is comfortable and do try and eat a little chicken soup if you can.  Home made if possible.  That alway does the trick for me and my tummy when its out of sorts.
Sending you a (((gentle hug))))
God Bless
