Hello,I am having temple pressure,piercing
stabs like an ice pick, but it seems like a vein that is swelling,have a fleshy
lump on opposite side under my
right ear,but doc said it was my
tendons,I don't know what is going on,but hurting severely under my knees,I been sick for a long
time. I had surgery back in
'06(an ACD & F spinal discectomy) for a small herniated disk and hurt worse now than did b4
surgery.Why do they do surgeries
that are unnecessary?I also have had surgery on my left jaw for a bone spur in
'89.I have been told that I had a screw placed in an opening and put right on
top of a nerve, doc said something @ it being brachial.I have to mention that I
hurt severely all over my body with burning,aching,itching
and lots of sharp, piercing pain that feels like a knife or an axe stinking in
my back.I just need to know where the
pain is starting or its primal destination.WHAT IS CAUSING ME TO HAVE ALL THIS
MISERY?MY BODY IS TOO
YOUNG(45)FOR ALL OF THIS.
I know this is a lot of info to process and I deal
with it ever day and need HELP SO badly.I never hurt in my life like this and it started
after surgery with just an arm ache and after the nerve block that hit me ALL
OVER,but it is progressing and intensifying in intensity. I don't want to die
and it sure feels like it sometimes. I just need to know which of these it is or
could it even be where I had the surgery on my jaw for a bone spur since it is
on the same side? Can u help me? <3
The burning, aching, and itching all over your body you describe are common complaints of people with fibromyalgia, which is neurologically mediated pain (pain that results from a problem in the nerves to the muscles). Fibromyalgia is a very painful condition that is not uncommon in young people. It is not uncommon for people with fibromyalgia to have associated migraines. Cymbalta is a medication that has recently been shown to be helpful in neurologically mediated pain such as in fibromyalgia, and this medication may be very helpful for you.
Another possible cause of your problems is temporal arteritis. Arteritis is inflammation and damage to blood vessels which most commonly affects the arteries in the head, especially the temporal arteries. The condition can affect your entire body. The cause of temporal arteritis is not known but is believed to be at least partially due to a problem in the immune system.
Symptoms of temporal arteritis can include:
? Throbbing pain on one side of the head
? Jaw pain
? Muscle aches
? Scalp sensitivity or tenderness
? Feel generally ill
? Excessive tiredness
? Excessive sweating
? Loss of appetite
? Weight loss
? Vision difficulties (eg. blurred vision, double vision, or loss of vision)
? Joint pain and/or stiffness
You should see a doctor, as soon as possible, to be evaluated for the possibility of temporal arteritis. Although temporal arteritis generally resolves on its own and most people make a full recovery, resolution may take as long as 1 to 2 years, and proper treatment is required until it resolves. Without treatment tissue damage and other complications, including stroke, may occur.
I hope that you are feeling better soon.
