Let me explain

I didn'tmean to worry anyone so let me explain.LOL I don't think anything is seriously wrong with me.LOl Several months ago my left arm starting hurting and it has gotten up into my neck. The pain is excrutiating and nothing helps. I have tried heat, ice and pain pills and nothing eases it. They did ex rays and can't find out what is causing it from that so they said they have to have an MRI to see what is causing the pain.
The problem is I am a big baby!!ROFLMBO!! I am so chlostrophoebic that I can't even ride in a car without a window half way down. I know that's mental but try to explain that when I am in a state of panic!!LOl
So now they have me on prednisone again to lessen the inflammation until they can find out what's wrong and steroids drive me crazy!!!!!! But my friend Nancy from Stitches n Strokes says that the good side to steroids is that I create and create and she loves what I make while on steroids.LOL
But I also cannot be put to sleep because my lungs are too weak so I don't know what they think they are going to do if they do find out what's wrong.
So just say a prayer for me that the pain will at least ease up to where I can stand it. And I'll just have to put the rest in God's hands and accept His decision. Thanks girls! I cherish my blogging and Etsy team friends, Valerie

Sorry to hear you're hurting, Val. I had similar pain from my left shoulder into my neck and down my arm but my chiropractor took care of it after a few successful adjustments. Not everyone believes in chiropractic care but they really do work if you can get a good one! I hope something helps soon.
My best to you!

Glad to know you are okay. I hope you can figure out what is wrong. Living with pain is difficult.

My friend hates getting an MRI. She can't even see the machine before she goes into it. Has to close her eyes before and get mental with God. Then she just prays and keeps her eyes closed the whole time.

If an MRI can't figure it out, I'd check into Vicky's suggestion. I once had an accident with a steer... and ended up with really bad migraines, I was in 8th grade, and missing lots of school because of it. Went to a chiropractor and he fixed me right up.

Yikes....I hate MRI's too - I also am a bit on the claustrophobic side, so can only imagine your panic and anxiety. Hope they can find the cause and get it successfully resolved....Prayers for you being lifted up.....Hugs ~ Robin
