Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
On that Friday my back was bothering me so I slid down in the floor and stretch my back at that point I couldn't get up I was on the floor for two days
every time I tried to get to my phone to call somebody I passed out finally called my neighbor had them get me up off the floor called my dog breeder and told her I wasn't a capable I've taken care of my dogs anymore she came to pick up the dogs was shocked at the way I looked and took me to the hospital
I was in the hospital for 11 days the first 5 days I was going through seizures and was totally paralyzed dr. Said he would Let me go when I could walk up by stairs I was supposed to be in to physical therapy and in-house physical Therapies was full had a arrangement for a physical therapist to come to the house they never showed up
I paid for my therapy having someone drive me up there and while I was in the hospital I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and my rheumatoid arthritis had gone Haywire my inflammation levels was 375 I've been to the cardiologist he's put me on blood pressure medicine and cholesterol medicine to help my heart pump better my rheumatologist he's put me on Humira and methotrexate I was having problems with my legs all along but it got worse it felt like spiders crawling up my legs and I have not been able to walk really good I complained for 6 months before they sent me to a neurologist do a do a nerve conduction study nothing really came out about it
there was a little bit of neuropathy what the doctor said but it's not that bad to come back to him next year
it was so bad that if I put my feet in hot water it is ice cold my legs feel like I'm walking on two stumps and horrible pains in my feet and now if I stand straight up for more than 30 seconds I start weaving real bad and when I walk I try to walk straight and I end up going off to the left if I turn too fast I fall down if I bend over to pick something up off the floor I lose my balance and fall on my head
and over the year I've lost connection between my brain and my mouth do you want to call it brain fog or whatever and now I'm having problems with my arms and hands tomorrow I have to go in for another nerve conduction study of the upper part of my body oh yes and in January I bent over to shut a kennel door and ended up having a herniated disc in my back now I'm going to the pain management specialist he's getting ready to burn the nerves in my lower part of my back because the rheumatoid arthritis excelled so much they can't do back surgery I decided a
I cannot continue grooming I am in too much pain and too much misery I've lost all ability to train and work my dogs I've worked very hard to get my female trained for service dog and I just got her certified I cannot clean my house I cannot clean my yard I feel like a zombie because all I can do is just sit
Now ptsd has flared up something Furious and now they're going to send me to a psychotherapist to see if they can give me pills just stop the PTSD
I have no quality of life I don't know what the future is going to bring if I'm going to be in a wheelchair or if I'm going to be gone off of this Earth I sent a picture to you of my skin peeling off once the hospital removed almost 200 lb a fluid from my body
