New PT Guy!

Well I am cautiously optimistic that I may have finally found a good physical therapist!  As opposed to that other loser last month!  He spent over an hour examining me, finding the various points where I say OW!  Should I be flattered that he said he has never seen a patient with my complaints before? The good news is he thinks that he can help me.  He understands Fibromyalgia and does Myofascial Release therapy!

He said that one of my hips was rotated one way, the other another, which can put everything off.  I have been ignoring my Piraformis Syndrome (yes, I know there are a lot of hyperlinks here but think how much you are learning if you click on them!) because the pain has not been as bad as that in my calves but he said it all relates.  His plan is to do myofascial release on all of these spots. He tried a bit yesterday and I already felt some relief which was so great!

I know it’s too early to really say, but for the first time in almost a year I feel some hope and happiness again with my health!  The pain in my calves has been what has really made me lose my independence and not be able to be alone out with Tyler.  And chronic pain = chronic fatigue.

I see him again on Monday and then we start a twice a week.

Back to Lupus maintenance tomorrow.  Orencia Infusion.

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
