Question: I hate to bother you. I see you some how made it out of this crap storm and still manage to dance. I am currently trying to get my pain under control in my legs. Burning, stabbing, muscle pain and weakness. It sounds like it good be fibromyalgia or some muscle disease. Did you ever take any strong pain medicine or have any treatment? Sounds like your really upbeat and motivational.
Answer: The pain in my feet, legs and hips was beyond any pain that I have ever
experienced. In the beginning especially. After one month had gone by, I decided to attempt to dance again. Dancing is my passion and my
profession. I took precautions with braces on my knees, ankles and then taped my feet and toes to help protect from
any tears. It hurt like hell but made my heart feel good.The next day I was pretty much down for the count, but the following
day I was back to my "regular" hobbling. I feel as though my moving and exercising helped in my recovery. I found that
being immobile made me really stiff and it more painful to move.
I know a lot of people on this board poo-pooed the supplements I took and the foods I ate, but that is when I started seeing an improvement!
It has been 14 months and I am much, much better with the exception that I now have leukemia.
I swear, life is never easy! It is very easy to become depressed when you are in constant pain. I highly doubt that you have Fibromyalgia. My pain traveled thorough out my
The ONLY help I received is from my chiropractor. He was instrumental in giving me back my legs!
I did take mass doses of Ibuprofen. I took three tablets every six hours, It did give me much relief, especially when I was dancing.
Hope this helps and feel free to contact me anytime.
