Whatever is happening is going fast. Took out dog for 10 min walk, both legs sore, especially hip joints. Hands hurt, not working, hard to type, hands shaking, muscles twitching, forearms burning with pain, both feet, whoa. Severe weakness all over.

I am so sorry that something that should be enjoyable and relaxing didn't turn out that way. I hope you get to feeling better and that you stay safe. Sending you a PM. First thing I did after reading this is look a few things up. I do agree with Keesha about going to the ER. You are too far out from your appointment. This can speed things up for you.

Good Morning David,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having so many increased problems lately. Is it something that appears to be worse in the morning? Can you rest (let the meds begin working) longer and take the dog for a walk a little later? Just a thought, I know when I wake up my pain is at a 10, especially my back, legs and hips.

Is it possible to at least get into your PCP today or tomorrow? If not, as much as we don't like to, can you go to the ER (great advice Keesha)?

I know it's very scary when our symptoms increase in intensity and/or new ones begin. Can you get extra help with chores until you find out what's happening? You may need to cut down activity for a while.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. This too shall pass. I pray you are able to get answers and relief as soon as possible.

Take care and rest more during this time until you get answers.
GOD Bless!

i am sorry you feel so bad today, glad you are going to nl tomorrow . i agree the er is not worth the trouble unless it is an extreme emergency. around here they just look at you and say look fine to me :evil:
