#29- OUR Responsibilities!

More here continuing from #28- More ACCURATE ASSESSMENTS with Good Reporting, Filing, & Reviewing  … Our Responsibilities… So all of the work of our healthcare has been handed to strangers, doctors, technicians, nurses, pharmacists, and the government BUT we all have responsibilities for our selves, BUT do we take care of our responsibilities for our selves and our families?

Unhealthy Patient Diets Can Add to Pain Problems

Unhealthy diets can cause us to have deficiencies in our systems that significantly add to problems with our growing bones.

Yes, I said growing.

http://www.boost-bone-density.com/causes.html  is a site that is very informative about bone growths. Including information corresponding to bone density is a massing of bone cells in smaller amounts of space, my dense bones for many years suffered almost no pain. Injuries which have caused my bones to repeatedly work to fix themselves, could be causes for why I now know a lot more about weather pain, but my self treatment seems to keep the pain from being too bad presently… it is not only a continually good diet, but it also is ginger which is a natural anti-inflammatory.

Diets of

  • white flower foods, (with the flour a sugared starch with NO value other than it is not sugar),
  • high sugar (cane sugar is often bleached, and strained so that all we get are the sweet remainders left behind from the health of the cane),
  • highly processed foods with the added chemicals that can break the natural body, and
  • lots of physical inactivity also can add to the problems grown for us as a people.

Many of us begin trying to live healthy after we have lived in fun for many years. But how many of us are suffering from our fun, with possibly injuries or problems that add cause to our reasons for suffering pain?

Blah, blah, blah… yes I talk too much, sorry. But you may also find that the use of nature can enhance your health. For me the old Dr. Jarvis treatment of unpasteurized cider vinegar and local honey has resulted in me avoiding the medicines for Acid Re-flux, Allergies, and possibly arthritis also. The previous Bone Density link shares information about how chemicals treating Thyroid conditions actually do not add value to bone building in the body.

All of our natural care for ourselves is another addition to the information we should share with our doctors.  They also may be ignorant of us because they skin a small sheet of information about us.  And the longer we have been treated the more fiddling files there are about us for our doctors to review.

So we should

So we all should have

  • a list of our medications, even the natural ones we use instead,
  • a list of all our self treatments & when,
  • a list of all the doctors we have visited & when,
    • a list of the doctor associated hospitals also,
  • diagnoses they have made,
    • medications they have prescribed for what,
    • tests they have done, for what, and when those were done, AND
  • other information.

This way we keep a medical record for our lives and for a reference to use in sharing with others.

The value of our own records

For us the value is a binder of work we’ve done for ourselves.  AND this assists us when we seek out new doctors, did they get reports from all your doctors about all your medications or were there missing files that they need to have?

And you know why this is my recommendation?

It’s because I’m not anyone but me, there is no guide in their files designating me for them.  The sense of this is because a lot of doctors I’ve visited recently tend to generalize me with all other diabetics they have treated, but I am me not them. So generally there is at least 2 minutes of every 10 minute visit with a doctor telling them to check my A1C records, to do the research, that I am healthy.  And there are still doctors that do not look beyond their past knowledge of other people before they start estimating me and the pain I have been living with.

While my:

  • records of my lower caloric intake have been ignored?
    • With the body situations of having eaten very little for over 3 years that could be effecting my bones, joints, organs, and other body areas too.
  • records of balanced food consumption have been ignored?
    • With my work to eat balanced amounts of food diminished by no hunger.
  • comments about skin, hair, body, and other problems have been put to the side because only one issue at a time can be taken into account.
    • IT HAS TO BE A KNOWN ISSUE
      • What idiocy, how can you know any issue if you don’t take the time, effort, and energy to make a real determination of the issue?
    • My words aren’t heard!

AND I’ve used the internet for RESEARCH also

Research for me includes having looked at

  • Osteomylitus, [NO TESTS done for this yet]
  • Respiratory Alkalosis, [NO TESTS done for this yet]
  • Diabetes Insipidus, [NO TESTS done for this yet]
  • Microscopic Waterborne Parasites/ Organisms, [1 TEST done for this INCORRECTLY] and
  • Hyponatremia water–electrolyte imbalances, [NO TESTS done for this yet]

which ALL fit me somewhat.  The Respiratory Alkalosis was proven not to be asthma AND Diabetes Insipidus have bone weakness associations; the Osteomylitus may have been acquired with walking around barefoot and having a nasty prickly bite me the inflammation in my right calf started about 2 months after that.  There has been no other work by doctors, beyond believing the lies of technician’s who were too overworked in reports, reading of information, and going through so many files.

AND because I don’t want to insult them with asking for tests for these, because the microscopic parasite test I asked for was a work done by so many to find the test.  BUT the LAB SHOULD HAVE SAID “Go to the hospital, we can’t do that here LIED!” And this lie has made my whole family get infected also, I lost my Walmart job because of the disease, BUT my family sacrificed so I could go to college.

Then I fractured my right calf and have had more falls, likely increased in intensity because the parasite has altered my whole system.  AND because of the lies added to my files which have caused doctors to think I’m a ‘drug addict’ instead of them treating me like I’m trying to get healthy again. MY medical file, which I didn’t make, could have eliminated that mistreatment, with my files of prescriptions showing every drug I ever got as well as the hospitals & doctors I used…

#28- More ACCURATE ASSESSMENTS with Good Reporting, Filing, & Reviewing

More here continuing from #27- Good COMMUNICATION a NecessityBUT everything with these tests depends on the technologists and the lab technician’s accurately reporting AND the doctors & their medical teams accurately gathering and filing reports AND reviewing them accurately also.

Better Medical Technical Assessments

There are multiple areas for getting technical assessments medically.

  • Blood Tests,
  • Picture Assessments,
  • BMI (Body Mass Index) assessments, and

these are only a few of the areas where more work is needed to make assessments correctly.  In some cases the assessments are just wrong because they do not have the detail needed to be accurate.

A BMI takes a government assessment of weight corresponding to the body and uses that to suppose if you are healthy or not.  But did you know that BMI is only using your weight and height for making the assessment of your health?  But Farmer John who is out in the garden 8 hours per day with a weight of 200 at a height of 72 inches (6 feet) of height could be way healthier than Everette Pike at a height of 72 inches (6 feet) of height with a weight of 190 could be a lot unhealthier.  The BMI doesn’t differentiate based on accurate assessments, it is only used for generalized measures based on generalized estimates of the public.

Body Composition tests which measure the water mass, bone + organ mass, fat mass, and muscle mass can result in much more accurate health assessments.  If Farmer John has– 28% muscle & 48% water & 18% bone + organ mass then the fat levels for him are at a 6% level, meaning he is very, very healthy.  But the so called healthier Everette Pike according to the BMI estimates could be a person who doesn’t do much more than sit in front of the computer and work.  With the exact same heights these men are inaccurately assessed when BMI is the only factor of health assessment.  Because weight is the only subset in differentiating and making the estimate of health.

WHY ISN’T THERE A MORE ACCURATE PAIN ASSESSMENT?

Yes the doctors do try to determine how much a person exercises, but do they ever ask about the chores you are doing outside of walking?

Everette Pike in the body composition test results in 12% muscle & 32% water & 20% bone + organ mass then the fat levels for him are at a 36% level, meaning he is very unhealthy.  Because of his youth and the loose clothes he wears the BMI assessments show him at a healthier level than farmer John.  But he is less hydrated, has a way higher fat on body amount, and is not burning the food with the muscle either.  His results from the body composition test could help doctors advise him to exercise more and could assist him in resisting heart diseases and organ problems also.

And these were only examples, what if a woman had a body composition test done that showed 12% muscle & 68% water & 16% bone + organ mass then the fat levels for her would be at a 4% level, meaning she is oddly out of proportion for being alive.  And it could cause doctors to make more accurate assessments of problems she is sharing with them.

Reducing the Doctor’s Fear of LEGAL Hassles

Oh yes I have complaints about the technical assessments done, because there are no variances in the assessments from the hospitals who I’m planning on suing for malpractice, liability, and long term disability resulting from lack of good care.

  • THEY have misdiagnosis part of my permanent file,
  • they have made technical ASSessments THAT WERE WRONG,
  • they have made me suffer lies about drug abuse,
  • they have let my family think that the doctors who believed the falsified reports are accurate in their diagnosis and
  • that I am a hypochondriac because the ONLY estimates they look at are the ones that SIMPLE TO SEE.

Which may mean I’ll need to wait until I’m dead, and my family sues, or I’m treated because they have misfiled and inaccurately billed my insurance and me among other things. But I can sue them for liability, because of lack of proper actions and miscommunication, this will vary because of the law changes, but it’s useful because I can act without dying or getting the accurate diagnoses which I can’t pay for now.

BUT YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF, AND YOUR DOCTORS CAN WORK TO MAKE MORE ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS WITH THEIR WORK & YOUR’S ALSO!

Our Responsibilities

So all of the work of our healthcare has been handed to strangers, doctors, technicians, nurses, pharmacists, and the government BUT we all have responsibilities for our selves, BUT do we take care of our responsibilities for our selves and our families?

#26- Your healthcare is YOUR HEALTHCARE!

More here continuing from #25- Infectious PAIN VariancesSo if a doctor makes a care statement, they should also have a reason to give me as well as a general detail so I can get their understanding to a better degree. 

BUT if I them to do that for me, I should work to take care of myself also.  They can’t make a correct diagnosis if I go in without a list of things to talk about. In youth the list wasn’t really needed but as an adult, your healthcare is YOUR HEALTHCARE!  Really how can a doctor treat you if they don’t know what they are looking for AND they don’t know details of test types?

On January 4th 2018- MEDICALNEWSTODAY, by Christian Nordqvist discussed information in the article What is osteomyelitis? For Rhapsodie if her doctors knew of the reality of the pain the pertinent points shared here would be of great value.

“The signs and symptoms of osteomyelitis, bone infection, depend on the type. They commonly include:

  • Pain, … and swelling, redness, and tenderness in the affected area [Yes for Rhapsodie, right calf, left arm, left calf, and right arm.]
  • Irritability, lethargy, or fatigue [Yes for Rhapsodie!]
  • Fever, chills, and sweating [Yes for Rhapsodie!]
  • Drainage from an open wound near the infection site or through the skin [NO for Rhapsodie, no open wounds!]

Other symptoms may include swelling of the ankles, feet, and legs, and changes in walking pattern, for example, a limp.” [Yes for Rhapsodie!]

Rhapsodie knows she had an infection and thinks one is growing again, but the healthy life she’s tried to live without lack of treatment means her body continues fighting infections tremendously.

“The physician will examine the affected body part for signs of osteomyelitis, including tenderness and swelling. They will ask about recent medical history, especially any recent accidents, operations, or infections.

Tests may include:

  • Blood tests: High levels of white blood cells usually indicate infection. [NEVER DONE FOR RHAPSODIE]
  • Biopsy: The physician takes a small piece of tissue to test which type of pathogen – bacteria or fungi – is causing bone infection. This helps find a suitable treatment. [NEVER DONE FOR RHAPSODIE]
  • Imaging tests: An x-ray, MRI, or CT scan can reveal any bone damage. [DONE WRONG FOR RHAPSODIE]
    • The damage may NOT be visible for 2 weeks on an X-ray, so
    • more detailed MRI or CT scans are recommended if the injury is RECENT.”

And our fiddlefarden medical system does things in reverse.  You go in with an injury and an X-ray is done, if they think there may be something to consider an MRI or CT is done.  BUT those tests are only good if the technician making the report doesn’t rewrite what the X-ray report really showed or they didn’t stuff in what a doctor wrote previously…

#25- Infectious PAIN Variances

More here continuing from #24- Relational Corresponding Pain Chart Part A- Section 4 & Part- B- Sections 5 & 6  Doctors have more reason to take care in their estimations making diagnoses because beyond injury pain can grow infectious pains from lack of proper treatment…

 

It is hard enough to have an issue that causes pain, a broken on my left foot next to the smallest toe that was dislocated in the 2000 car accident, took over 4 months to stop hindering my steps.  No my toe did not hurt when I was in bed, but walking is a part of life, and walking with a smaller broken toe can be done, it can still cause pain.  The injured toe, as healing, didn’t remain isolated away from life so there were times when it got bruised while it was healing.  Areas that are exposed to injury can suffer more pain as well as more associable issues with infection.  This can cause more pain issues also, the UTI examples are infections of various types for many situations.

Doctors often run a temperature on people, but what about people who do not have normal body temperatures?  The Disabled World, Feb. 21, 2018, article about temperature says that an adult person who has “normal body temperature ranges in the mouth (oral) [that] is about 36.8°C (98.2°F)” temperature normal, then the concern because “[a] temperature over 38°C (100.4°F) most often means you have a fever caused by infection or illness.” This means that the normal temperature person has changed temperature 2.2oF to 2.7oF in order to have a high temperature. “[A] fever is indicated when body temperature rises about one degree or more over the normal temperature.

https://www.disabled-world.com/calculators-charts/degrees.php

My normal is 97.3oF to 97.7oF using a mouth thermometer, which means that at 99.1 OR 99.5 I would be in fever. The hyperthermia has not been heard by the doctors because they ASSume that the normal is the same for me just like it is for everyone else. AND it is NOT! For over a year now I’ve had temperatures more than a degree over normal, and that’s one of the only infection sign I know has been tested for and there are other tests.

Defining Care Information So Patients have more knowledge

In general when doctors ask me if I have any questions, I don’t have any at that moment.  For me questions arise in the time after their care AND in association with taking the time to work on understanding what is shared along with why they made the comments they did.  So if a doctor makes a care statement, they should also have a reason to give me as well as a general detail so I can get their understanding to a better degree…

Relational Corresponding PAIN Chart Part A– Section 4

4. Gather individual patient ratings corresponding to the needle user; the needle in use, type of use, and the body area of location use. The 3 variables shift here with:

  • the needle user,
    • Better training and more practice should mean less pain.
  • the type of use need,
    • Emergency care done in the dark is not the same situation as a blood withdrawal done at a lab, AND
  • the reason for body area location, insertion site, use with the needle.
    • Type of Shot or Withdrawal
      • A shot for insulin is done in an area of body fat not muscle in general,
      • A blood withdrawal for a lab is generally done in an area with blood vessels close to the skin, and
      • An immunization shot is often taken in a more muscled area of the body.
    • Location of insertion,
      • Where the needle is inserted will effect the pain results also depending on the nerve areas in the body of the insertion site.
        • People who are familiar with giving their own shots can know what different areas of nerve feelings effect results from inserting in the wrong locations.
          • When I get shooting pain, it’s because I’ve inserted my insulin needle where there are blood vessels, the blood that comes out after removing the point proves me correct.
          • Number areas are safer for insertions with less nerves.
        • Examples
          • A dentist giving Novocain shot does it at the mouth, allowing at least the 15 to 30 minutes to numb it for the patient before they do more work.
          • A doctor giving Novocain for numbing a spine will put it near or at the spine THEN making sure that the 15 to 30 minutes of time to numb it for the patient is allowed so the numbing is done before they do more work in the nerve center, most painful if hurt location, of the body.
            THEN

Relational Corresponding PAIN Chart B– Section 5 & 6

5. Chart ratings from use for the individual with how their specified ratings and other averages correspond from the previous ratings gathered for other individuals.

  • The more consistently that this is done, the more correspondence for having rating scales used by individual patients.
  • This means if the ratings of 0 to 10 are used with the needle and the other variables above corresponding to other patients then there can be more consistent scales for doctors in reference to every individual.

6. The ratings charted will then fit onto an average for corresponding the individual in pain scale against the generally associated averages which means people who fit outside the norm can be related to more realistically with their pain ratings and the care for them can be more accurate.

b- 0-10 pain rating AVERAGES capture B

You can see how the variations in pain for the exact same situation can cause the doctors to have made inaccurate assessments.  The Relational Corresponding PAIN Chart Part A & Part B,can then give the doctors a better reason to associate what they hear and see with the care work they do.  And the patient’s can get better care for their needs also especially when their Picture PAIN Diaries with timelines are made so when the doctor views their pain remarks they also gain a better evaluation with their decisions.

Compiling information

Compiling the information will work best with computers that can assist in averaging and adding information into formula sheets that will provide quick estimates for doctors to review about individual’s pain tolerances.  THEN when the patient works and builds their visual pain diaries they are not only creating visuals of what has been happening, but they are also adding details that are not easily assimilated in a 10 minute visit.  It’s also possible that these compilations can assist doctors with the internet, email records, and other automatic systems for taking and keeping records.

I mean the mechanic can plug a little box into the computer of a modern car to get a better idea of what’s happening with its systems. An accountant can have budgets from multiple areas, businesses, and financial processes share information with it.  A personnel system has computers that keep information about employees, pay scales, hours, and medical information also.  There is a net work of systems that are used to assist all of these fields and we have not good system for getting pain estimates from individuals.

I remember the one time I was questioned in kindergarten about the feel of the tetanus shot. For me I said one, there was nothing to correspond that pain to, I only realized in watching the many students of my age group that went through the line before and after me how much some were hurt.

b- Average pain ratings corresponding- Kindergarten Tetnus

Yes there are also the Dolorimeter tools for measuring pain tolerances, but it’s my conjecture that their use failures come with associated costs and the inexactitude of application styles by the wide variety of users.  Plus the lack of consistency different testees with the situations for testing could damage relations with those pain assessments, so the work with the needle doesn’t need to be a needle but there needs to be other relations that correspond, like are shown in the information posts about the Relational Corresponding PAIN Chart sections.

Rhapsodie’s Relational Corresponding PAIN Chart shifting variables can be more acclimated because of the ways and the frequencies of the assessment that could be done among a large variety of people.

Doctors have more reason to take care in their estimations making diagnoses because beyond injury pain can grow infectious pains from lack of proper treatment…

#17- Rhapsodie’s Visual PAIN Diary- April 2017

More here continuing from #16- Visual PAIN Diary- Winter into Spring 2017- Worse & Better At the present time, my LEFT Forearm, LEFT Calf, RIGHT Calf, RIGHT Forearm, LEFT Rotator Cuff, RIGHT Shoulder, 2nd to smallest toe on my Left foot, are my only real PAIN ISSUES that shift and vary with bone strain in movements. 

Presently

I generally get upmost days without any pain, but my movements during the day can and sometimes do cause PAIN.  A wrong step or a wrong lift can give me lightning pain followed by swelling and an ache that diminishes without more stress if I do not repeat that motion within the next week.

Sleeping is made way more difficult, because my left calf feels like it splits when I rest on my right side for 15 minutes or any more.  The exercises for my lower left ankle/calf assigned with physical therapy have increased and advanced the fever of my right calf. It only aches like a bruise presently.

Walking with my left calf wrapped causes pain like shoving micro spears into my bones near the last place a spike of pain happened if I’m on uneven ground and barefoot.  Walking with shoes and bracing causes me to ache whenever I take a step wrong at the store, like from pushing a shopping cart.  My right calf ONLY hurts when rubbed by hand to remove the swelling that centers over the fracture, that is as yet untreated, and when the fever in the calf gets bad my body temperature rises also.

ANTIBIOTICS CONTINUE TO REMAIN THE ONLY PAIN TREATMENT that removes pain.  But doctors’ have continued to ignore this sign of infections in the body. Prescribed treatments only fiddlefarden by brain to disguise from it the reality of pain.

  • Steroid– I was allergic so only 2 doses out of 7 were taken, a week of no pain, but I really injured areas that weren’t felt as being in pain.  Over 3 months of working to recover to the point I was previous to taking a single dose.
  • Acetaminophen/Cod 3o mg & Turmeric Cur-cumin– 24 hours of sleep with 36 hours of fuzzed brain, fluffing away the pain in disguising the problems from nerve central.
  • Aspirin/Ibuprofen– 5 to 12 hours of sleep
  • NSAID Cream– Anti-Inflammatory, I’ve only used one dose so far.

The fever in my right calf has been regrowing, today April 15th my temperature was over a degree above normal. The area of swelling on my right calf is not associated with ‘bone injury,’ but surgery was mentioned to me this last week.  My left arm though is the problem we’ve discussed through this set of blog posts, with the Visual PAIN Diary- From September 2013 into April 2017,

this is the last post for that section of this PAIN Care blog. Because I believe the plate for my LEFT arm has been moving around.  And thus the movement of the plate means that the areas of pressure from grip have shifted when pressing in areas also.

My sleep is again being problematic.  Because of so much lack of care, lack of physically moving properly regularly I’m almost incapable of walking presently.  The present medical system is set up to make sure anywhere there is a problem on your body you have to go in for a separate visit.

The Left shoulder injury could probably have been avoided if there had been care for my lower arm, but there hasn’t been, and I’m still having problems with my left lower arm & the recovery exercises for the shoulder exacerbate the problems with swelling of my Left Forearm.

But beyond them is how the patient will continue to suffer into the future and the cost settlements for injuries that are as yet uncared for as well as uncalculated into the lack of care … The lack of care results have led to a weak left arm, added to taking my ability to do the enjoyable tasks I still love as shared in the beginning of the document.

NEEDING LEFT ARM BRACING FOR ALL NORMAL TASKS,

many of which are avoided because of the work stress spiking pains:

  • Holding a bowl of soup, a small notebook, anything at all really with my lower left arm results in spiking and shifting pain with a single move.
    •  It’s really hard to eat a bowl of cereal.
  • Taking out trash, on the kitchen 15 gallon can has not been done, by me in over 2 years, my previous work at McDonalds involved lifting larger trash bags regularly.
  • Sorting through my storage of season clothes exchange took over 2 weeks, pain hindered me as did my arm not being powerful enough to brace a suit on a hanger single handedly with my left hand.
    • I have not washed a sink full of dishes since the week of the Steroid NO PAIN;
  • SWOLLEN NUMB FINGERS, specifically the 2 middle ones of my left hand, started feeling pinched about the summer of 2015 after the Steroid week & this reoccured in September & October of 2016.
  • SWOLLEN HAND, if my Left Arm is not angled up to sleep, I awake with it totally numb.
More ARM Work PROBLEMS,
  • Watering my plants is uncomfortable with my 1 quart watering container. 2 hands work best.
  • Adding water to the humidifier is done with the smallest cooking pot in the house, the 2 to 3.5 cup one. That’s between 16 and 28 ounces, a gallon of milk has to be lifted with 2 hands.
  • Lifting my drink mug with my left hand aches.
  • I do not comb my hair or brush my teeth with my left hand anymore either.
  • Washing Dishes, 1 piece at a time,
  • After doing anything normally easy for over 1 hour,
    • except for using the typing keyboard, it’s okay with resting my arm on the brace pad on my tucked down bear.
  • I haven’t sewn, sketched, crafted, read a book that weighs more than a Harlequin in over 6 months because my left arm can’t support the weight or the use angle stresses presently.

Just earlier this week a metal L door handle touched the upper edge of the YELLOW ORANGE bruise pain on the picture, the pressure felt like having a hand slap onto a bloody purple bruise beneath the skin. That area has never caused me any pain in the past; I would rate that at somewhere near ONE but less than that.  It’s the persistent re-ache that is most annoying.

Because months have passed since my last entry I’m adding details from the present situation and the pain shifting.  A situation which the doctors have listed as chronic pain, they’re stupid about that, but then they only read what others share with them before making a diagnosis. The February 2018 post demonstrates how the so called ‘chronic pain’ isn’t, it’s in fact circumstantial driven by life AND lack of proper treatment.

#16- Visual PAIN Diary- Winter into Spring 2017- Worse & Better

The pain splitting AND swelling that resulted from the shoulder bracing demonstrated to me that also the injuries of my left calf were splintering as I feel towards my knee and towards my ankle.  With use my left arm is splintering towards my wrist.  This is not normal but maybe people with dense bones are more likely to have this happen because of the greater bone resistance to splitting breaks which separate bone parts completely.

Winter & Spring 2017 Swelling & Splitting Pain Tied Together

At present my Lower LEFT Arm suffers swelling and more, pictures from February to April of 2017 are demonstrative visuals. As you can see with the pictures, the swelling green section is over the lower forearm bone, it has not reached the wrist bones, but it is very close.

Osteoclasts were not allowed to work the separated bone into the freshened injury after the Father’s Day Fall of 2014.  After pushing a part of the bone down behind the plate as it was in my arm then did not realign on the injury properly, thus it did not heal onto the base bone properly.

This is only part of Rhapsodie’s issues, but having bones improperly cared for can weaken the overall body of any person.

  • How do multiple repeated spreading fractures weaken a person?
  • How does the lack of correct bone care hurt and add problems beyond pain?

There are definite answers to these questions, but in consideration of my left arm, more and more physical weakness hinders my physical activity and the muscle mass decrease has allowed my injured bone areas to sprawl with greater touchable ease and the lack of use has caused more body problems as well as fear that Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis will be suffered more than it ever should have because of NO DOCTORAL CARE & self patient education.

A person should work to retain body balances, if they do not work towards this through their life they could suffer more and more as we see repeatedly.  Originally the PAIN problems I had were just rated by me as accidents in which I would heal from with time.  But the years of growing issues, evidenced on these pages demonstrates how initial pain problems diagnosed incorrectly can expand and become worse problems for both patients and their serving medical people.  Especially when medical people don’t take the time to investigate more than ‘tell us how you would rate the pain?’  Followed by let’s prescribe a ‘drug.’

To me that’s not work to investigate or learn anything, if you reported to the local police that you saw a car off the road in an odd area with skid tracks through the snow an investigative vehicle would be sent to the location. The problem would be taken care of before the police left the area abandoned with no care for the people.

If the work to pursue diagnostics was done with a little more accurate understanding of the real pain being felt with the medical requests then there could be better care with hopefully less cost as well as time wasted for both the patient searching for care and the doctors who are working to provide care.

  • Why is it if a patient talks about pain, there is no care given?

NO wonder there are so many people suffering ‘prescription drug problems.’  For me, pain is a sign of problems, taking drugs to minimize pain weaken my body and add to problems I could get.

Presently

I generally get upmost days without any pain, but my movements during the day can and sometimes do cause Pain.  A wrong step or a wrong lift can give me lightning pain followed by swelling and an ache that diminishes without more stress.  Sleeping is made way more difficult, because my left calf feels like it splits when I rest on my right side for 15 minutes or any more
