I'm glad and sorry at the same time to hear this gabs. Glad that the x-rays came back fine, so at least you don't have a weird fracture or break or anything, but sorry to hear that you now have to be transferred to a specialist. Try not to worry though, you're in good hands, and Gissi will always cheer you up when you're feeling down. Just make sure when you go to the Hospital that you're wearing matching shoes :P

Possibly a neurologist, Gabs. I certainly hope he finds the problem. It is good to know it is NOT certain things, but unless the actual cause is found, nothing can do done to rectify the problem. I'll be praying that the cause is found quickly and treatment to rectify it will be successful.

I will glad to take care of Gissi while you are at the hospital. Lizzie and Gizmo would love the company. If you get the right pain killers, you might have a little fun with this experience. Not to worry, everything is going to be fine. I have you in my prayers.

Thank you Sweetie I really appreciate this I think it is going to be a long drawn thing like it was with my Lung disease so I will be very much on edge and no doubt quiet at times it is my way of dealing with it

Here's one to make you giggle. Lizzie has stolen my pillow on the couch and will not give it back. She is sleeping so I will have to wait for her to wake up. Then I can get my pillow back. She has her own pillow but noooo, she takes mine. LOL

I am sorry to hear that gabs, being sick is no fun, and neither is being in pain. The wait and see games are awful too. I hate that. You get one thing answered, and eliminated, and then they come up with another test to put you through. I understand the need for the pain pills, thank god for those. You will be in my thoughts.

It's best to get all the tests over and done with, sweetie, so you know what the problem is and they can treat it effectively. I hate blood tests, so I'll be thinking of you. Hmmmm, the stronger pain killers might stop you trampling my garden for a bit! I see the spideys gotcha! lol Don't worry about things, until they find out what it is. It could just be a trapped nerve or something. Please don't let it get you down for now. A big (((((HUG))))) for you. Love and Brightest Blessings. x

I´m so sorry to hear that you´re going through so much pain that they had to prescribe you stronger pain killers. I guess waiting for the results of the blood tests is worrying you most. I feel for you, dear gabs. At least the Xray was al right. Maybe the specialist can give you some good news too. I really hope he will. I´ll be thinking about you. All the good vibes are going your way, dear friend. XXXXX Dana

Come on gabs, we all know it is all that foot stamping which has caused this. Seriously, what I am hoping is that all this pain is due to those falls and knocks you have had recently, remember the fall on the kitchen floor? Hopefully it will all settle and by the time you see that consultant you will be doing the can can. You are doing the right thing resting up. Epsom salts in a warm bath are also said to be very soothing and to help bring out deep bruising. Hope you are soon chirrupy again my Love. xx

i think, blood test is a good advice. i just want to know about the kind of specialist treatment in the hospital. what kind of specialist would it be gabs? do you need to stay there or it could be done as an out patient? i know how strong you have been and this time also you will come out a winner. take it in your stride and be a brave girl as always. God bless you.

Hello sweet Gabs, it feels good to hear that the Xrays have come back fine. I feel the specialist will be helpful in your case as he or she will be in better position to know what is causing the pain and how to treat it. And follow through doctor's advice and go for blod tests and take your pain killers. You are a strong willed person i know you will handle it well. my best wishes are with you. good luck. have a nice day folks. :)

I think that is one of the must if you want to get better is do what the doctor says I learned the hard way but I am doing as my doctor says I still have a lot of pain and will the rest of my life but I am learning how to deal with everyday life as it gets hard to do but be strong my friend.

Hi Gabs, I would think it is goods news that they have transferred you to a specialist. At least you will get treated early before it is too late. Tell yourself, at least there is some action taken to stop the pain. The pain is going away soon. You are on the road to recovery. Remain positive and hopeful ;)

Hi Gabs,I'm glad the x rays revealed no problems.I wouldn't worry too much about the blood tests from the specialist,I'm sure it will be easily resolved.At least the pain killers will help you to manage the pain until they can pinpoint the problem and fix it for you.You are in my thoughts and prayers dear friend.Love and mega hugs to you xx

Hugs. I'm glad the x-rays have eliminated the bad news. I was worried about it. You are probably referred to a neurologist as the x-rays have shown no obvious orthopedic problems. I'm praying that the coming blood tests will be normal and the pain is caused by a very small nerve problem. Just a bit of constant pressure on a nerve root is more than enough to cause great pain. I have my fingers very crossed for you.
