Could so many days of pain that does not subside bring on Still flare? I know it can, but I don’t want to even allow the thoughts to take hold in the universe.
My poor leg. Our 1st floor of our house flooded and I came down the stairs and hydroplaned across the white tile floor into a couch. My left leg went under the couch and was stopped my knee cap. And have 2 poor broken toes that hit the leg of the couch.
The MRI reveals I have several high grade contusions to the lateral and also medial femoral condyle. I have a 4 x2 cm capsulosynovial cyst that formed on the medial femoral condyle. The pain I feel when I take steps is light electrical shocks. I cry at night when I shift or move my leg. I wake up tired and in pain.
I must wear brace for 4-6 weeks 😣
No flexing knee for 3 weeks
No riding horse
No long distance walks
This is all very awful, but the symptoms I have at night are the most worrisome.
I’m not sure if the extreme cold I feel at night with teeth chattering and then a fevers that beaks is due to experiencing constant pain? I did have labs drawn a month ago for a different situation. The labs were normal. But I may have to go back and have lab draws again soon.
The fear of a chronic illness that lurks in the dark is always in the back of my mind.
This past year I have endured so much pain from getting a knee in the jaw, a wrenched back from lifting patients at work and a Right leg tibial contusion. Now this. I’m exhausted from being in constant pain. I try and be mindful. I try to embrace the pain because I know there are people suffering in much more pain than I am.
If I could take the pain away from abused animals by having and accepting this pain, I would do it. But in the meantime and brutal existence with pain, I take a deep breath and pray.
Stay healthy my friends.
