oh, my aching back(update)

UPDATE: I'm back from the doctor's. I have a compressed disc and degenerative disc disease. For now I am on bedrest with some therapy. I will continue to post, but nothing to exciting for a few days. He told me if the therapy doesn't work I will probably need surgery. Yeah, not happening right now. Maybe down the road. We'll see.


I'm going to the chiropractor this afternoon. My back is so bad that I can hardly move. Literally. It took me 5 minutes to get off of Heather's couch this morning.

Richard came and took Jaiden to the bus stop for me, since it was pouring down rain and Kylah needed the umbrella. He's not working, so he is taking me to the doctor, too. I don't think I can get in and out of the car without help.

I am most comfortable (if you can call it comfort!) sitting on a straight back chair. I sure hope he can help me. I haven't slept hardly at all since friday night. It started getting bad on saturday, although it has been bothering me for a week or more.

It just seems like it has been one thing after another.

Sorry about this whiney post, but I knew you all would be sympathetic!! LOL

I would love to take a super hot bath, but I know I wouldn't be able to get out of the tub!

Oh Denise, bless your heart. That sounds so painful. I hope the therapy and chiropractic treatment helps and maybe you won't have to do the surgery! I'll put you on my prayer list.

I sure hope you feel better soon. There is nothing fun when the back is not working properly. Hope all goes well.

Hubby has been suffering with back pain for 10 years now!
He hasdegenerative disc disease and a ruptured disc plus scar tissue build up around a disc!
His pain management Doctor does an epidural rhizotomy on him every 6 months and it gives him much needed relief!
Do some research and see if its an option for you too!

Sending prayers and soft hugz,
