Tests tomorrow...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone~

I just wanted to ask for your prayers & thoughts for me tomorrow. I am having a nerve test done on my legs/feet/arms/hands. I don't know anything about this test other then what people say. They say it hurts. I'm nervous as all get out that's why I'm up soooo late (12:50am here). My dr thinks I might have a disease called polyneuropathy (I hope I spelled it right). This disease runs in my family so the chances are high. I've been having problems with pains in my body for about 3 years now. I have finally said enough is enough! (I had to turn down a job in the neighbor grocery store's bakery. icon_cry.gif I knew I couldn't stand that long with all these aches & pains). I want every test done that will help me find out what's wrong. I'm only 37 but I feel like I'm 80 most of the time!!! I ache with every breath I take. icon_cry.gif Please think of me today or pray today that everything will come out ok. And that the dr.'s will find out what's wrong. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!!!! I feel better already!!!!! Like my signature says, "Prayers Go Up, Blessings Come Down" I do believe that!!!! Blessings, ~Tina~
I'll keep everyone posted~

I'm here for ya TC, heck I am sure all of us are. I hope you let us know how things are. I know you have to stay flat for 6-8 hours afterwards (or so I have heard) and as for the pain, well I heard that the Lumbar puncture that they do for testing for this is comparible to an epidural when having a baby. If thats true it's not all that bad, at least it wasnt for me. You will be fine! Just think of good things, and yes blessings will come down! You better keep us posted!! icon_razz.gificon_wink.gif

You'll do great TC! If its the same test a friend of mine had, they poke you with needles and zap some eletricity to see if there was any nerve damage. She said she was afraid to drink anything afterward because she feared she'd leak. icon_lol.gif

TC, you will definitely be in my prayers. If we can get together for the sake of cakes, then I know that we can pray for you. And I have always believed that prayer can move mountains. Please keep us informed. And I will say a prayer every hour for you for as long as it takes. God bless you!!

Tina, we are all with you. You are in our prayers.

Like flayvurdrun said ~ make sure you stay flat for the 6-8 hours if they are doing the lumbar puncture. If not you will have the worse headache you could ever imagine! (voice of experience speaking).

You will come through it fine. We're all pulling for you

Tina,
You are probably already "testing" as I write this, but take heart, this is the first step in finding the underlying cause of your pain. My daughter has had these type of tests done several times. Seven years ago, when she was 12 years old, she contracted a virus. As a result, she can not walk or care for herself. Some doctors call it critical illness polyneuropathy others label it CIDP or CIAP. She experienced hypersensitivity and began taking Neurontin for the pain. After a few weeks, she noticed a definite improvement and today is pain free. She no longer needs to take this medication, but I know many people who do as their pain is more chronic. You may fall into this category. We have had alot of experience with tests, medications, doctors, etc. Please email me if you need help wading through the options that (hopefully) will be presented to you.

Best wishes and God bless,
Sandi

Modern medicine has come such a long way-I know there is agony in your mind and body everyday, but to finally have an answer and help should make the process a little easier to bear-there are so many prayers coming to you from all over the world from your "cake family" your heart should be light knowing you have our support. I hope the news is that there is something that can be done to make your days brighter-keep your spirits up and your faith close-we are here for you..
What you do may be a "little thing" but "little things" add to alot!
