    Wow, well I hope things start looking up now. I'm glad it's nothing terribly bad to worry about...

    And as Dumas said, hang in there!!!

    Hopefully you'll keep improving. And massages can't be too bad ;)

    That must have been terrible! I had a similar experience but not as bad with the MRI I had in the fall. They couldn't find the vein in my arm and when they finally got the IV into my hand the dye leaked out causing terrible pain. I completely sympathize with you, your story made me cringe. I am glad they didn't find anything seriously wrong with you!

    Ugh.. I am not looking forward to the "massages" at all... the doctor was prodding around a bit, asked me to flex... and man did it hurt! So not looking forward to it at all.
    Laura, that sounds awful too!!! :(

    OMG! I feel for you, I think I've had that nurse. My veins are super hard to find so it either takes a really good person, or some patients on both our parts.

    When I was so sick after I had Seth, several things happened to me, they had to take blood a couple times every couple of hrs, which was pretty hard on me. Eventually they had started to exhaust veins, and if I would have stayed any longer, they would have had to start taking blood from my legs and feet.

    I still have a scar in the crook of my elbow from when an IV came out! It was so infected and irritated that I had a bruise starting above my elbow all the way down to my wrist.

    I have also had a blood draw from that spot just below your thumb. I think they called it an arterial draw. You aren't kidding when you say they hurt! I couldnt imagine having something injected into that vein. *huggles* I am so sorry!

    As far as my CT scan, I have stories to share too! The most memorable is the final CT I had to determine if all the blood clots in my lungs had diminished, and I was out of the woods. Well when they shot the contrast into my arm, no lie, (I know I sound silly when I say this) but I HEARD it. I HEARD the contrast, after that I felt like it had pooled in my left temple. To this day I will get really bad shooting pain from my left temple, back to about mid/3/4 skull.

    Anyway, It's all over now... We're here for you.

    Oooh Bobbie, that doesn't sound pleasant at all!! Yuck!!

    Thank you ladies for all your support! I guess we'll see how it goes from here.

    Do you have adhesions or endometriosis?

    Do I have what or what? Sorry I have no idea what that means... and would it show on a CT??

    I don't understand that if it is muscular or anything like that... why it would just get painful out of the blue, even if I'm just sitting on the couch and it decides it's going to be painful, it is.

    I just wonder if that's where you carry your stress. I always had problems in my shoulders and mid back. It was helped by massage but it was very painful at first. If you do start with the massage bear that in mind that it may be very painful till you get the knots worked out.
    Have you thought of seeing a chiropractor? Maybe its back/spine related
