I began PT about two weeks ago and things have gone steadily downhill since. I'm doing all the stretches three times a day as suggested. By the end of my first set of exercises, my pain begins to spike. After the second round, I'm barely able to walk for the rest of the day. I do my third round in bed, then toss and turn for hours trying to get comfortable. Sleep seems like a distant memory. I understand that PT is supposed to come with some achiness, but this doesn't feel like normal muscle or stretching pain. It feels like I'm damaging myself.
I've communicated this to the PT Assistants I work with, but don't get a chance to talk to the actual physical therapist until my discharge appointment in 4 weeks. I'm getting incredibly frustrated. I've been called "non-compliant" in previous medical records, so I don't want to discontinue the exercises that I'm prescribed, but lately it's at the expense of being able to get into the bathtub or put on my own socks.
Insanity is trying the same treatments again and again and expecting different results. I'm a hopeless case. These challenges seem insurmountable. I'm never going to find relief, and I no longer have any quality of life.
It worked!! I took my pills last night and this morning with chocolate milk and no gagging!! Also bought yogurt today so I’ll try that
If you haven't, take this personality test. It's pretty good and I found it so insightful.https://www.16personalities.comAnyway, I've read INFJs are the most susceptible to mental disorders, including bipolar. Anyone else an INFJ?
