Over the weekend, I was experiencing a lot of pain in my legs, feet, and back. This is nothing new, but it was so intense it was hard to get comfortable. At one point, I was so distraught about this pain I asked my husband, “What in the world could I have done so wrong in life to deserve this pain?” Of course, my husband was trying to help make me feel better and told me I did not do anything to deserve the pain I live with. The same as my grandfather did when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, my husband told me how strong I was and even though I should not have to deal with these issues, I could conquer them all and he was there to help me in any way he could.
Unfortunately, when my pain gets too bad there is not anything anyone can do to ease it. It is frustrating when nothing helps, and all tears do is give me red eyes the next day. I cannot even say if the pain or neuropathy is worse because they are both miserable. Maybe it was silly of me to think I did something in my life to deserve the pain and neuropathy, but why else would this happen?
I do know that stress only increases pain and I think it increases neuropathy issues as well. The bad thing is they both make me stressed because I want it to end so badly and cannot find a way for it to STOP! My levels of frustration and disappointment can become so out of control, being logical is a foreign topic that seems so far away.
I would say it is unfair to have to endure pain and neuropathy, but it could be worse. I know others are dealing with much more and I should not complain. It takes a lot for me to complain because it does not change anything, so I do not see a point. I know stress is a HUGE cause for symptoms to increase, but it is also incredibly defeating when there is NEVER any relief. Even the strongest people in the world need a break sometimes!
