I’ve been dealing with chronic nerve pain for over a year now. No one has been able to tell me why I have neuropathy. I’ve been on neurontin unsuccessfully. I’m now on Lyrica with moderate relief (I mean going from an 8/10 pain daily to a 4/10 is relief to me).
The neuropathy is spreading.
I now have numbness, tingling, and sometimes weakness in my arm. Nothing has changed. I haven’t gotten hurt. No new falls. Just new pain.
I want to know why.
Why do I hurt? Why do I feel tired all the time? Why do I trip over everything? Why do I feel weak when I wake up? Why do I feel like my spacial awareness is off? Why am I limping? Why can I hear the blood rushing in one ear? Why is it spreading?
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?
I feel like I’m going crazy. I feel like I’m losing my mind. I feel like I have to be making this up. I feel like maybe I did something wrong to cause all of this. I feel like giving up.
