Well I saw the doctor yesterday. Let me think, I drove round trip 160 miles to spend 2 1/2 minutes with the doctor. Ok 3 1/2. For him to tell me what is wrong with my feet and that he can't handle it and has to refer me to one of his colleagues. Nothing more. (geee think a phone call would have sufficed.) Not how to treat it until I see this other doctor, NOTHING. We in the US know that our medical is the highest form of legal organized crime. There are some good doctors out there but they are caught up in the chaos of the politics of practising. Soooooo now that I have vented about that..... I was so briefly told that I have advanced Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, (RDS). In other words sever nerve damage. Hmmmm for 10 years I have been telling the doctors in 4 different states that my feel hurt ALLLLL of the TIME, including a podiatrist. Each and everyone of them have told me it is due to lupus and to live with it. OK so is RDS associated with lupus or with the Syrinx on my spine. Hmmmmm.... I guess I won't know until Oct 6 when I see the "other" doctor. Do I sound happy??? NOT.... not so much with my feet as with the lack of listening and caring from the medical profession. It is all about getting as many patients in as possible and to set us all up with unnecessary expensive testing, and ohhh let us not forget the prescriptions. Ooooohhh I think I better go smudge and meditate and calm down. LOL
It is what it is. However, in doing research on RDS it can occur in any part of your body, mostly limbs though. Feet, legs, arms and hands. I am SOOOOOO beyond thankful that it is in my feet and not my hands. I guess I better get use to that wheel chair. If that is the case I am getting a wham zoomer one. The kind I can do wheelies in.
Thanks for listening my dear friends.
