Naz,

Can you at least call and talk to the nurse at your doctors office? It is just about a week now since you had the injections and if you are still having this much trouble something must have gone wrong.

Let us know how you get on.

Take care,
Karen

Naz,

Loss of power and movement in any limb is not normal at all, I am really concerned that you may have not sought medical help yet!

I can understand your reluctance to in part not to phone the hospital, BUT you do need to overcome this problem and get medical assistance. I don't think your mad and certainly and medical person should not be doing their jobs if this is how they treat people!

If a part of your body is not functioning properly then the medical profession needs to find out why not - thats their job after all!

PLEASE phone the clinic that gave the injection or visit A&E/ER!

Love Lesley

Naz,

I have to agree with the others about calling the doctor's office. It never hurts to ask questions. I have also had injections and normally they only hurt for a couple of days. Since this has given you trouble for so long, it needs checking into.
