June 14th, 2021 was the day my life changed. I know people have definitely felt pain a lot longer than I currently have, so the month in a half of pain seems so little compared to others.
This was the day the burning started and has just continued. Some days are better than others. My in laws were in town and we went out and about. On our way home, I noticed my cheeks felt like they were burning but nothing was to show for it. Then my head started. I went to the ER to get checked for strep, covid, flu, etc. all negative. I’m in the process of trying to figure out what’s going on. But with my constant research, I’ve come across a thing called #SmallFiberNeuropathy . I’m pretty sure that’s what’s going on.
I will feel burning, tingling, or even oddly extreme coldness in my face, arms, my shins and tops of my hands. It sucks and it hurts. I don’t know for sure what’s going on but it has definitely taken a toll on me. Especially because I don’t know what to expect for the future or what I’ll be told. I’m scared and in pain.
