Two weeks have barely passed and the effects of the nerve block are wearing off. I’m having a pain flare accompanied by swollen feet and ankles, and a burn down both my legs. I also have pain in my right hip. I spent the day lying on my couch with my legs elevated by a stack of pillows because they hurt so much. I was able to escape the pain for a few hours here and there when I would doze off.
The mild relief I’ve felt over the past couple of weeks is leaving. I called the pain clinic earlier this evening and left a message for my pain specialist letting her know that things seem to be returning to my usual high pain levels. I asked for an appointment so I could go in for an assessment. I don’t know what else to do.
I apologize for the lack of music with this post.
