this is why i am bed bound 24 hours a day and why a powerchair or segway wont help me get outside because i cant stand or sit longer than 10 minutes, if i do then the pain goes past a 9 or 10 and stays that way for days.
i never talk about arachnoiditis because it is less known than crps and according to my medical team the treatments are basically the same except with arachnoiditis you have to be lying down all the time.
there is a lot of overlap symtoms from arachnoiditis to rsds and and some doctors even consider fibromyalgia at first,-- the big ones that stick out to me are the burning pain, sweating(temp control), memory loss/concentration, inflamation, sleep problems, nails/skin changes, nausea, swelling, spasms, gastro problems, fight or flight(loud noise makes you crap your pants
and start flareup), major head aches, more sweating, hypersensitivity, severe cronic depression, suicide thoughts, develope fear problems due to pain, (bbs= bladder,bowell and sexual problems), joint pain, rashes/ulcers, feel like you have mono or the flu for sveral weeks in a row, eye problems and dental problems come later. thats just off the top of my head.
