So I made an appointment to see one.
I can honestly say that I have never experienced anything like that in my entire life. The Osteopath hardly even touched me but somehow she triggered me into a full fledged flare. I am not sure how she did it, but she did. I haven't been in that much pain in a very,very long time. And unfortunately, I was unable to regulate the pain, so I have been in and out of flux ever since. It has been over a week now.
Anyhow, this was my first trip to see and Osteopath, and because I am not sure what it is I am suppose to feel like after a session, I am going again in about a months time.
Well the appointment has come and gone and I did not go. I was speaking with my specialist about my experience with the Osteopath and he said that I should not be in that much pain afterwards. He recommended that I do not return. So I took his advice and did not go back.
Now this isn't to say that in the future I would not go back to the Osteopath, but for the time being, until I am able to regulate my pain, that is going to have to wait.
The previous medication did not work for me, and now I am on another medication, so fingers crossed this may work. The good news about this one is that it has a long way to go before I max out on the possible dosage. We always start as slow as possible, so here's to another adventure.
I am ever the optimist, but to be quite honest, this is brutal. Not seeing a clear end in sight is something I never thought that I would ever experience, but I guess it is status quo for anyone who has a chronic illness.
Well, I have one more post to do today, so for now, I leave you with this. Sometimes it get so dark that you can not see anything, but if you insert just a pinpoint of light, you will be better-abled to see clear.
You are not alone, ever.
