Allright..so there has been numerous things that have been going on in my life. The thing that has been clouding my mind lately has been three weeks of backpain.
I am not sure how it started…but I hurt my lower back. i would sit for 8-10 hours at work, and then another 2-6 at home…it was killing me. So i read up a little, talked to people and hit up a chiropractor…all was good at first…I felt pretty good after the first few times, but thenI had to keep going back…
Well 2 weeks or so went by and I could barely move. It hurt to breath, my back was extremely tense and I could not stand up straight, or bend over…the pain was brilliant. So I laid on my floor until 6pm and then waddled over to the chiro.
I think the chiro wacked me the wrong way because it not feel much better. (side note, as I type this I caught a whiff of some weed, and it was not mine) Well then thursday came and I went to work…and it hurt, but I made it through the day, and came home and went to bed. Friday, I went to work..and it was ruthless…I could not sit still, it hurt to sit, stand, blink…anything. Pain was shooting down my leg(possible pinched nerve!). Brilliant.
So I said f this, came home, laid on my floor, called a new doctor, this time a DO.(see the difference between an MD and a DO)
I took it easy the whole weekend and popped ibuprophen every few hours. The swelling/tension and pain went down and I could actually move again.
Well then I went to the doctor today, I had to get x-rays…if it does not get better by next week it will be time for an MRI and they will let me know if I need to get surgery. WOOOOOOO. The good thing is that I got more drugs…the one is Naproxen Sodium, pretty much Aleve, in horse sized pills. The other is a diazepam..which is something used to treat anything from anxiety, to insomnia, to muscle spasms!!! it should help me sleep!
So that was phase one of what is going on in my life.
