Well, I am back for my weekly ****** session. I had a terrible night PN wise and today is more of the same. Food shopping was on the agenda as I was planning a nice dinner for family and friends come Thursday but looks like I won't be up to getting out today and now fearful I may have to cancel Thursday. This sure does make it difficult to make plans even when I keep things simple. I am sad and discouraged. The pity pot does not help and makes everything worse so best to stay distracted and hope tomorrow will be better.

I too am sorry to hear about MrsD. I know what a driving force she has been on this site and since my medical issues I have great empathy and compassion for those that suffer. I wish her strength, courage and healing thoughts as she forges forward with her rehabilitation. Get well soon MrsD.

Kiwi, I find it odd that your PN flares up in the heat. We are all different but the more common complaint is the cold. Personally I see no difference in any weather conditions or anything I eat or do. It just is.

Why can I not find this "other thread"? I want to see what you guys are up to.

I read something extremely encouraging. I suffer from the burning, pain and strange sensations of PN but what impedes my life most is the alcoholic myopathy, or weakness in my legs. This ncbi gov reports says that with abstinence and proper nutrition up to 85% of patients demonstrate function improvement in muscle strength within the first year of drinking cessation and complete normalization by 5years.

Guys, this offered me much hope at a time when I have been so very depressed and feared I would never be able to have of a normal life. I am very encouraged.

Oh never mind....PN can cause the weakness too and apparently the alcoholic myopathy is proximal and PN is distal. My weakness is distal. Crap.

I had started magnesium supplements for a short time some time ago and I believed they were helpful. During the insanity of a move the tablets were misplaced and forgotten about. I just found them and have been taking them for three days now. The burning in my lower extremities has subsided. Coincidence? Likely but I certainly will continue.

If it works and is not a "hurting" you in any way then I say it's a good thing!

That sounds good to me SecondChances .

My attitude is that whatever works works; we are all different.

The brief relief from the burning was not from the magnesium, it was just one of those random times where there seemed to be a bit of improvement so I was trying to figure out why. With me there is never a rhyme or reason it seems. Anyway, burning is back and so it goes.

How's that job going Icehouse?

So far so good! My case load is growing and it's fun being out in the community and not tied to a desk

I already have my 40 hours in this week so I'm working a half day (flex time) and then heading to the movies with a friend.
