Feel like my life is ruled by pain

Woke up in agony again, it's been getting worse the last few days, I have pluratic type pain on the lower right side of my chest, been going on for months.
I've got morphine for when it's at it worse which I've been taking the last few days, along with cocktail of ofher stuff,
Feeling completely overwhelmed by it this morning
Suppose to be having a lie in for my birthday but pain is forbidding that.

Balls have a temp too, sad

OddBoots Sat 24-Aug-13 08:49:32

Oh dear, that does sound miserable. It doesn't sound like the pain has been diagnosed yet, have the doctors given any suggestions? Is the raised temperature new?

I hope it's not crass of me to wish you a happy birthday anyway.

Thanks boots, I have sarcoidosis but they don't really know why I get this specific pain,
Temp new, I'm on immuneo surpressence and steroids so will have to see a dr if it stays up sad
Thanks for the birthday wishes smile

I am sorry you are unwell on your birthday. I remember one time when I had a painful ear infection and was miserable, and someone brought over a box set of LOST. I had not seen LOST until then, it really helped distract from the pain. Could you watch some tv to distract you? Hope you are on the mend and better soon. Happy Birthday. cake flowers

No wonder you felt terrible! But you are in the best place for now, they can pump you full of medicine and nice and hydrated, and you'll be up and out, dancing with a belated birthday hat on in no time. smile

Still in hospital they think something going on with my kidneys, so scan tomorrow, pulse temp and bp really high,
Current sats - temp 38+ pulse 125 it's been over 100 for 3 days.
And bp hit a high today of 186/119
Feel awful sad

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Mon 26-Aug-13 20:56:25

That's rough, I hope they can help you soon thanks

What an awful birthday weekend sad

Hope they sort the problem out very quickly and you start improving.

essexgirl31 Mon 26-Aug-13 21:01:45

So sorry to read you are unwell. I have done a lot of renal nursing if you have any questions.

Lots of healing vibes your way

LargeGlassofRed Mon 26-Aug-13 21:51:35

Thanks all, that's really helpful thanks Essex, really haven't got a clue what going on with me, I think the blood pressure has something to do with the kidneys though?

magso Mon 26-Aug-13 23:26:52

Sorry you are so I'll again. Hope you are being well cared for and soon feeling better.

essexgirl31 Tue 27-Aug-13 19:55:29

Hope you are feeling a bit better today. Blood pressure and kidneys are very much linked.

magso Thu 29-Aug-13 08:54:09

How are you doing today?

LargeGlassofRed Thu 29-Aug-13 21:22:43

Still in hospital I have pneumonia now sad

OddBoots Fri 30-Aug-13 15:45:07

Oh no, you poor thing, you really are going through it.

magso Fri 30-Aug-13 17:13:43

Thinking of you. Hope you are feeling less ill soon.

Gigondas Fri 30-Aug-13 17:17:32

No wonder you feel so ill. Can you get a pain specialist referral?

Morphine did nothing for my pain except making me feel out of it but I was given new lease of life after seeing specialist who put me on mix of synthetic morphine, nerve painkiller and steroids. Ime you do need a specialist as most drs don't have clue .

Hope you are feeling a bit better
