Back pain sucks

I have not had a very good couple days and I feel like I am saying that a lot lately. UGH. Yesterday I had a very BAD day at work. Some crappy things happened that I am not very happy about but this being the internet and all, unfortunately I will leave it at that...but know I want to say so much more.

Today my back is in SO MUCH PAIN. I went to the dr to get some relief and it feels like they made the problem worse. They did some adjusting and that hurt like hell. So then they gave me a shot in my lower back, and gave me an RX for Nap.roxen. They said the shot will hopefully help within 24 hrs. Man I really hope so because whatever they did my back is so much worse now. So I have been laid up...I am sensing a theme lately. Hopefully I will feel better soon cause this SUCKS!!!

In other news it has been warm here the last few days. Yesterday it was in the 60's and today I believe the 50's. I hear it is not going to last long but I will take it whenever I can get it. It is raining like crazy here but I'd rather the rain and not snow.

DH's gramma is doing well. She had surgery to clear the side with the 100% blockage and they put a stint in that side. They said they will be sending her home in 3 days so that is good news. So now they just need to decide where they are going to have her because nobody wants her to go home by herself any more since she isn't really all that able to help herself any more.

Well that is all that is going on with me. I hope all is well with you. Have a great rest of the week!

I hope you feel better soon too! Why don't they give you some steroids for the back pain, like some prednisone? Something tells me that would work better than Naproxen... though the Naproxen should help.

Ungh.

Hi. I had a creepy interaction today and needed to change blogs. Transitioning to a new site that I don't want to publish on my blog: http://strongblonde.wordpress.com/

Sorry about the work stress and back pain... one of those alone is horrible to deal with, much less both at the same time. :P

Hey, ask your doctor if you can get a sample of a Flector patch. I *love* mine. You can cut them in half and they will go even longer. Google it. I hope you feel better.

Have you ever tried acupuncture for your back? I had a bad back injury at work last year and was on a TON of meds. But as soon as I started seeing the acupuncturist, I slowly got off all the meds and my back was 100% better after about 6 sessions. You should check if your insurance covers it. Mine covers 20 sessions a year.

My chiro (paid) appointments are used up - so I have decided the only thing for my back pain is to such it up and strenghten the muscles around the spot in my spine that keeps going out. He calls in my "writers back".

Ouch - but - still exercising.
