The Intensity Continues
Tonight has been my worst nerve pain driving itching night so far. It’s like playing that game at Chucky Cheese where you’re trying to hit random pop up figures with a hammer. The itching is everywhere at once. I’m trying everything I can to stop or even soothe my skin. My feet, hands, legs, arms, and anywhere in between feels on fire.
I’ve done much of what has been recommended by experts to fight my Neurodermatitis. I’ve tried to not just scratch the areas, hot baths, topical creams, Benadryl, and even covering up the most intense areas. I’ve literally covered my feet in diaper rash just hoping to freeze things overnight.
You’ve heard the term new levels,new devils. It’s clear that one major stimulus of this is my nerves and stress. It’s hard to totally shut down either of those that things just dealing with the itching alone. But, it’s so much more than that attacking my body all at once. Research shows I may need a shot or prescription strength to even keep tips stuff in check. It’s taken a monster leap in intensity in just the past few weeks. All this while I’m still trying to find the perfect setting for my spinal cord stimulator. It’s a full time job just having to do anything that revolves around my nerves, skin, back and legs. The good news for now is my meds have finally colllided together to possibly help me sleep tonight! I need a medical degree for sure to deal with all this chaos.
