I am in so much physical pain, I almost can’t bear it. My doctor has ordered tests, ultrasound, MRI, a repeat mammogram because my recent routine one was ‘inconclusive,’ and my doctor has referred me to a spine clinic. But all of these tests and appointments are days and weeks away. Meanwhile, the pain is growing worse.
A couple of Saturdays ago, I was in so much pain that my husband took me to the hospital emergency room. The ER doctor gave me an injection for the pain but it made little difference. They also took Xrays, which were inconclusive.
Right now, my husband is almost 200 miles away in Texas at a Veterans’ medical clinic. He is being treated for prostate cancer that has invaded his lymph gland system. I need to be healthy and strong for him. Please pray for my husband too!
I’m sorry to be a downer. I just need help. We have three rescue dogs that I am taking care of by myself. Sometimes when the pain is very intense, I involuntarily cry out, which is scaring our poor dogs.
What is causing this horrible pain? I don’t know and my doctor doesn’t know, which is why I need tests. About 21 years ago I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my neck and in the lumbar region of my spine. My doctor wanted me to have surgery then, to repair my damaged discs, but my insurance company would not approve it. Maybe this pain is from that, getting worse over the years.
By the way, the injuries to my spine were caused by extreme abuse. This pain is reminding me of that horrible abuse, which is a trigger for my PTSD.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for caring. Thank you for praying. Although I am 100% unworthy, apart from my faith in Christ, I have witnessed phenomenal miracles in response to prayer. So I know what a difference prayer can make. God bless you. I am praying for God to bless everyone who reads this and prays. ❤
