9. Thank you. I will try to be patient! This last relapse (last week) was just excruciatingly

Painful. The only way I got through it was by taking dilaudid I had left over from a previous surgery. And now I have no more dilaudid left so if the pain comes back I will have to go to the ER. And since they do not give out painkillers other than Tylenol or Motrin at military ERs, the only way Id get pain control is to be admitted to the hospital.

And I already went through that two years ago when I had my first bad bout with this crap. Because I had an implanted device at that time (which I have since had removed, long story) they could not do an MRI. So they misdiagnosed me with GBS instead and stuck me in neuro ICU for ten days. Fun fun fun. But they did at least give me painkillers for the excruciating back pain.

I'm just tired of being blown off, misdiagnosed, tested, tested, tested, with no idea of when I will finally get some help. But I will try to be patient for just a fewmoreweeks at least....
