Comment : Saw Anesthesia/Pain MD today
Posted by Angela on Thu 12:44pm 15 September 2005
After being up all night and having my toes feel like they were on fire, along with other various parts of my leg, the Pain clinic saw me on an "urgent" basis. It helps when you work with anesthesia residents. So after 3 of them thought this was so "unusual" (if I hear that word one more time...) they want to do an EMG study, which apparently involves sticking needles in me to map the nerve etc. I can't wait! They prescibed me Ultram and Lidoderm patches. We'll see. My toes were originally numb, now they burn like fire. According to the MDs that is a somewhat good sign that the nerves are trying to heal, so to speak.
Thank you all again for being soooo nice and supportive, you are all a great group!
I'll update after the torture test.
