I hail from Illinois. I am a 74 year old retired licensed practical nurse. I have PN caused by a adverse reaction to zocor. I have other problems, glaucoma, diabetes, fibromyalgia and just recently diagnosed with copd.I have always loved helping other people. Worked with the elderly in one capacity or another most of my life. My husband has rheumatoid arthritus, I have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, one bossy cat. I understand how it is to deal with chronic pain as I deal with it every day.Love to do sewing projects and crochet.
As a neuropathy patient its been tough dealing with the pain, I have been to every kind of doctor on the market and it seems there isnt much that can be done medically. I am now looking into other less traveled roads for the (cure) such as hematologist because it seems that most of my problems exist with blood born illness's such as diabetes and small vessel disease. I have been a MDJunction member for some time and they have been a blessing to me when it comes to support and advice from so many other members. I encourage all of to work together and get the word out about these illness that can be prevented.
