I know the feelingPosted by Gina on 2/15/99 at 00:00 (004829)
Wish I had some great suggestion for you to help ease your pain; sorry.But I sure understand the frustration, depression, and pain you are experiencing. It is very hard not to feel hopeless, useless, and helpless. It is almost 2 years of PF misery and my attitude gets worse, not better. Did have one lighter moment a couple of weeks ago...tried a new-on-the-market anti-depressant (Celexa)to see if that would help. The side effects of jitteriness and nausea combined WERE enough to take my mind off my feet for a few days, but after a while, I did need to sleep, so went off the Celexa. Also had a really painful response to my 12th acupuncture treatment, so that seems to be a failure as well. Don't know what I'll try next.....most MD's say I've had 'every treatment known to man.' Will have to decide if I want to wait for the Ossatron or something similar or give in to surgery. I'm sure THIS post will cheer you up-LOL! If it's any comfort, you're not alone....hope something turns around for you soon.
