  5. michelle I already had an MRi done onmy neck he seems to think that my shoulder hurts from my neck but I will see how it feels after I get the epidural. But I can tell you if it still hurts I am going to get that MRI of my shoulder.
  6. Well next wednesday I will be getting my first shot for my neck, he seems to think that the pain in my shoulder is from my neck, I think differently but I will hang on and see. I did call my family doctor to see if they will get me something for the pain. I'm hurting and this cooler weather is making it worse. The pain doctor couldn't give me a shot today and or anything for the pain. I really dont know why I was jsut happy to be there and to find out what his paln is. Shot's are his plan. I hate shots, I dont do very good with them, It's like I'm a little girl all over again. I dont ever remember them hurting when I was younger I jsut know I dont like them now. Well anyways I'm going to lay down its been a stressful day for me. Take care Sam

  15. Celia, do you want a mexican type chicken casserole? Or just a regular chicken casserole?
  16. no I havent tried sweet potatoe but it would work too. Actually any squash would that is yellow orange. Also when I was growing up my grandma used squash instead of pumpkin for her pies there is no difference in the taste.
  17. Ced, I dont know anything about PH here is a link to get some information about PH www.phassociation.org (Pulmonary Hypertension Association.) I'm sure there is something on here to give you some insight about Ph as well. Take care, Sam
  18. Sweet, he asked me about PT I told him that I had tried that it worked for two weeks then it starting hurting more. No he didn't give me any pills, I hate taking meds and I already take too many . I will be going to see a pain doctor so we will see what he or she wants to do. I know they are going to inject my neck.
  19. Ok here is what the results of the MRi said about my neck.. I 1. No large disk herniation or central canal stenosis or cord compression. 2. Mild to moderate degenerative disk disease, spondylotic and uncovertebral hypertrophy at C3-4, C4-5, C5-6. C6-7 levels. 3. Above changes cause mild to moderate multilevel neural foraminal narrowing, greatest in C5-6 and left C6-7 Levels, mild central canal narrowing. 4. Straightening of hte C-spine can be seen in paitents with muscle spasm, no compression derformity or subluxation is seen. He told me if my shoulder keeps up to call him next week and we will do another MRI. He seems to think it is my rotor cuff. He did give me a shot and some muscle relaxers. I he asked me if I wanted some sleeping pills, I told him no incase of something happening to my parents I wouldnt be able to wake up and help. I am waiting for a call from a Pain clinic or doctor. If they dont call today I am to call in the morning and make an appointment, Dr, said they will help my neck. So that Is where I am at now. Thanks for all the lovely responses, I am so glad you all know and wunderstand what we go through each and every day and we are all there for one another.. Sam
  20. I did not sleep well at all last night, I called and made a appointment for at 1:00, I had talked with my nurse and she said you might have to go se a specialist, I told her I kinda thought. When You go from using you arm to where you can hardly move it I'd say you would see a specialist. I think I will make an appointmnet with my orthopaedic doctor after I see my family doctor, I am going to get a shot even though I dont like them but I can't handle this anymore. It';s effecting my sleep I can't do my hair or shave or lift anything that is somewhat heavy. I move wrong it hurts.Well I just wanted to let you know.. Sam Will post wht the doctor say's.
  21. Frosty Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie 9 inch graham cracker crust: 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (22 grams) ½ cup of melted butter ¼ cup sugar Filling: 1 cup of cooked or canned mashed pumpkin ½ cup brown sugar ½ tsp. salt ½ tsp. cinnamon ½ tsp. ginger 1 quart of Vanilla ice cream 1/3 cup of chopped nuts To prepare crust: Combine cracker crumbs with melted butter and sugar. Reserve ¾ cup of this mixture for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture firmly into a buttered 9 inch pie plate. Chill 45 minutes before filling. To prepare filling: mix together the pumpkin, brown sugar, salt and spices. Stir in ice cream to soften; then fold into pumpkin mixture. Pour into prepared crust. Combine reserved crumbs and chopped nuts; and sprinkle mixture over pie filling and freeze until needed. • I had used a pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and ginger. • I just guessed at the measurement for the pumpkin spice. • Enjoy!!! This is really good.
  22. :( It hurts so much and I am so tired of it. My neck and my left shoulder all the way down to my hand . I know something isnt right, i can't shave under that arm, I have a hard time getting dressed and today I couldn't do my hair. That isn't going to work out very well. I didn't sleep well last night at all and I had gotten up and put nice smelly ben gay on. It did nothing for me. Today I had put on a Absorbine Jr. pain relieving patch and nothing..I wish I had something to knock me out until Monday morning. You know a few years ago it was my left hip where it hurt so bad , that I had to keep getting shots, it seems to me it's always my left side that is affected. So is there anyone else that feels one side is more affected than the other? Well I am going to go lay down it has a been a long day for me. Take care, Sam ;)
  23. Well it will be a few days before I get the results of my MRI they did today. I can't wait to find out what is causing my shoulder pain that goes to my hand and my neck. It has been going on since the end of July. I went to PT and it helped for a few days then quit. So now we are just waiting to see what the results are. I hoping I dont need surgery but I think that is going to be an option really. I have a hard time raising that arm above my head and Howie has to help undo my bra, I can't do it the way I usally do and it makes me mad. I can't even shave under my arm pit, how groose is that!! no lifting at all in that arm. It has affected my daily life .. Well enough for now, Take care, Sam
  24. Lisa take a deep breath and try to relax, I have an idea can you sleep on an angle? Maybe that will help.. I use to wake up feeling that way then I starting sleeping on the recliner. then I had a sleep apeana test done. So maybe you should look into that, I am sorry to hear about your knee, I have had knee problems every since I can remember. And for your daughter I will keep her in my thoughts. You take care of your self, and let us know how things are going with the both of you. Sam
  25. emmie Here is a link for paraesophageal hernia. I hope it helps, Sam
