I need to vent for a second

Useful 5

I am mentally and physically drained. I am in so much pain it is almost unbearable. I got my gallbladder out in November which helped a lot of my stomach issues (I had a 2cm gallstone) and actually helped me have normal bowel movements. Now I’m back to really bad and a few other things happening that’s tmi, so they think I have ulcerative colitis. They’re testing for everything; if they don’t find anything with my colonoscopy, they’re going the autoimmune route since my bloodwork shows something is definitely wrong. I feel so sick when I eat at this point and sick at random times. No reason.
Then of course with my normal pain, I’ve been having so much problems especially the past week with my bad arm. I’ve been in more pain than I typically am, with my arm cracking more than 10 times a day; I just sit and cry… not to mention trying to sleep the pain away. I have KT tape on my bad arm which helps a little bit with the pressure typically, but lately it’s done nothing at all for me. I get a cortisone shot tomorrow in my rotator cuff tear and the cyst associated with that tear. They think that’s causing at least a little bit of my pain when I move my arm in certain ways. I’m petrified that it’s going to cause another pressure point because of my hypersensitivity (I’ve had an EMG needle cause a pressure point, so I’ve never allowed another needle near my bad arm ever since) but if it helps me even a little bit with pain I will risk it. Obviously it’s not going to take me out of all of my pain since the nerve damage isn’t something that can be fixed (already on medicine for nerve pain) but if this cortisone shot takes me even the slightest bit out of pain I will actually cry tears of joy. Genuinely.

I’m just tired. Mentally and physically. My body feels like it wants to give out on me. I just feel like crying and sleeping all the time.

Oh my goodness. That’s…awful. I’m so sorry. I’m hoping if it is autoimmune it’s manageable for you. <3

I Crohn’s Disease. I was diagnosed in 1993. Hopefully, you will get answers from your testing. Once you get a clear answer, then you move forward. (Hugs)

I’m so sorry you’re going through all of this :( I hope things start to get better soon <3
side note – have ulcerative colitis and if you have any questions or anything, I could try my best to help. my mom and I had to wait quite a while to be diagnosed and I don’t want you to end up in the same boat if you have it too.
