    Seems I'm not the only one who is tortured by doors. My black eye is finally gone after I got into a skirmish with a cab door...I got a black eye, but the door got a dent from my thick skull.

    Hope you feel better, Skippy.

    Yikes, did the door knock you down or were you trying to open the door with your butt? Everyone, be careful out there!

    Did they call it Neuropathy? I have that from the diabetes I had for almost 25 yrs. Did they do the test with the sharp instrument where they scratch the soles of your feet & see how you react?

    Nope,they ran electricity through my legs to see how they reacted.
    Apparently,it is all connected to my back and the hot spots where it really hurts.

    Hi again. Skippy how are you doing?
    ok you reminded me of a question I have been thinking and didn't have time to ask my specialist. I poke my upper legs and parts of my back with a safety pin sometimes to see if the feeling is back there-if it has been gone for over a year past the surgery then will it ever come back? Or am I stuck with no feeling there for ever? Just wondering.

    Sorry I have not been very supportive lately everyone. My heart goes out to everyone suffering. I am getting frustrated because I am starting to realize that the drs are sending me back to drs I have already seen. The pain has increased and my mood has decreased so I try to keep to myself alot.

    Gotta love it when they start sending you around in circles. I've done that a few times with this weird thing with my hands (not arthritis, but certainly feels like it when I can't pick anything up without pain). Feel free to pm me if you feel frustrated & need someone to vent to.

    This story will give you a good laugh. Back in Jan of 97, I went down to Mexico with my best friend for a vacation away from the cold (& to celebrate my surviving my appendix bursting 6 months before). When I came home, I felt tired & sick & eventually ended up in emergency with a high fever on Valentine's Day (I didn`t get released until St Patrick`s Day - gotta love holidays ).

    I had a ton of specialists trying to figure out what was wrong with me, of course no one would believe me that this was related to my burst appendix 6 months before, because my symptoms were weird (I was right, they listened in the end & took out a huge mass of goo - what was left of my appendix & all the junk that had globbed onto it in those 6 months).

    Here's the funny part. I had an infectious diseases specialist, very sweet man, but somewhat, um, shy. Keep in mind I was a bit out of it with the fever. Every night he would come by & ask me what I did while I was in Mexico, & I would give him details about the sites I went to, typical travel brochure stuff. & he would ask me who I was with. & I would tell him all about my best friend I`ve known since I was 4, & how we travel everywhere together cause we`re so compatible & on & on. & he would ask again, who else was I with. & I would talk about this nice couple from North Carolina or the elderly lady from Orillia or the nice young girl from Germany, & on & on. It never dawned on me that he thought I caught something from being, um, friendly with a stranger.

    It wasn`t until one day I mentioned his daily visits to my friend that she clued me in. When he came to see me that night, he asked me the same question. This time I made it clear that I didn`t do anything like what he was thinking while I was in Mexico, & I certainly would not be doing that with a stranger in Mexico. I went on & on about it - it was the lovely meds I was on talking - & I didn`t let the poor Dr get a word in edgewise for about 20 minutes.

    Feel free to vent,that is what we're here for.
    I hope someone in your circle of life is able to properly diagnose you.
