I've been having some nerve pain for the first time ever. It feels like electric shocks. Went to out of hours clinic and we discovered it happens when I twist a certain way. It's really unpleasant - making me freak out because it's unfamiliar. It's not severe pain, but because it's so new I'm anxious about it. I'm getting more pains through my body as the day has gone on, but I'm not sure if my mind is playing tricks on me - whether I'm feeling my normal aches and misinterpreting them as electricky. The pain in my arm is the strongest. Thankfully it's only occasional. The dr said it MIGHT be a trapped nerve. She couldn't give me pills cos it was out of hours and it would be better to get someone to oversee the process. But she said treatment would include painkillers for nerve pain, physio, and injections, depending on how this progresses. It might go away. I thought this would be much simpler - like, do this exercise, and it will go away, no pills needed. Or that she could press on one part of my back and everything would be aligned again, but I guess only physios can do that. I thought it was minor and quick to solve. I'm more freaked out now. Is this particularly common with ME/CFS? Does anyone know if there are specific links between the two? I reckon it's because I've been in bed so much and my core muscles are weaker and maybe I slept on my side too much. Which is all because of ME/CFS. Arghhh anxious...! This is the latest I've been out of the house for ages proud of myself for being able to walk relatively fast for a couple of mins, AND proud of myself for slowing down in line with what my body needed despite being late for the appt.
