I have waited several months for physical therapy in rehabilitation center. I dreamed of it because of soaking in sulfur water baths (being in hot water in general), individual medical gymnastics (1 therapist - 1 patient), massages, TENS and other electrotherapies. Previous years it helped me to get some muscles and condition and to feel little better at least for few weeks after.
This year my anxiety is the worst, everything bothers me. The fact I am still undiagnosed after 5,5 years doesn't help. Usually I am mostly at home, in secure environment with my husband who takes care of me and my therapist and best friend – my dog. It was extra big change for me to be in the rehabilitation center with lots of laud, insanely inquisitive people but I promised my husband and myself that I will try to do my best. Unfortunately, after 10 treatments and finally feeling some muscles in good way, I felt sharp pain in my back and right leg. I can tolerate big amount of my pain but this kind of pain… My therapies are stopped and I’m waiting for the appointment in pain clinic. Last time I felt pain like this but in left leg and back I had spine surgery.
Anxiety and depression are now winning. Just few days ago I believed I will soon feel a little better and stronger.
