I saw a Dr on Monday (not my usual Doc), who prompted me with various questions at which point I broke down and sobbed my heart out. This is not normal behaviour for me, I put it down to the lack of sleep, work problems and sadness at losing my brother to throat cancer in March.
Once I regained my composure I reiterated that the pains in my legs and not being able to get to sleep were my main reasons for being there.
After examining my legs for pressure and strength, Doc thought my pains might be related to my 'troubles' and that perhaps once things sorted themselves out, the pains would subside.
Told him I was on leave at the moment, so he prescribed me sleeping tabs and said to go back if pains persist.
I haven't taken any yet because I'm worried I'll wet the bed! Also, I hope to regain some sleep pattern before I return to work on Tuesday.
Pains are still bad - not getting any better and I'm now taking paracetamols but wary of doing that.
What do you think? I think the pains are not entirely to do with my worries although I do think the mind can do powerful things to the physical body.
Loads of info there.
Will look forward to hearing from you.
