Myofacial Pain Syndrome

Yesterday the ortho surgeon expressed a possible diagnosis of a thing called myofacial pain syndrome. It differs from fibromyalgia (non inflammatory) due to the inflammation being a big factor. I will see the rhumitoligist. No surgery on shoulders. YA! He put me on steroids to temporarily dull the inflammation.

My immunologist also days pryer wants me to see a special rhumatoligist. He thought that perhaps I might be facing an issue with fibromyalga. I have an appointment with him on June 28, so until then I must do my best to endure the pains.
My Ortho doc sent me on to regular MD to manage the pains.
I saw my regular MD this morning and she started me on Lyrica a med that I had used after my knee replacement.  I started the med to get the brain function to stop with the pain signals. I will need to begin therapy my left arm is now unable to lift up. It has become impinged.

The theory is that the brain is miss fire-ring and causing the muscles all over to go into spasm. That is the best I understand so far. The testing to rule out the big C will be done, but I am beginning to see relief it is a real gift. Although the joints show issues  and damage the pain is out of balance as to what it should be for it. My shoulders both have non surgical issues as the wrist is still in limbo with a bone on bone issue. So after several joint appointments and MRI's this is what is deduced out of it all.

Sometimes it takes a ruling out of things. I do hope that the ruling out season is short for all of you dear hearts. That you will not suffer indignities. God is there, here in the midst of the suffering. In the midst of all.
Last year the same medication was given me under my knee surgery.It helped a lot then, perhaps it will again. Perhaps the Myofacial pain syndrome thing caused the intensity of the pain then and now.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
