Let me update you a little bit more...ankle was swollen again yesterday afternoon along with the calf a little bit. Today, pain is about a "9" with the bottom of my killing me. I also am experiencing stinging in my right hand which I have never before. Does this sound like a flare up of TM or syringomyelia to you? My blood sugars are fine as is my blood pressure. Each day is getting worse and my pain management is saying she's gone as far as she can with morphine (slow release) which I am taking 120 mg a day. Thoughts on this please...and thoughts on meds...I have an appointment with her on Wednesday the 7th. Thank you so much. It's so nice to have someone to chat with. I'm a little scared because each day seems worse. Happy Easter to you and yours!
