I am still trying to get back into my eating/exercise routine from taking a long weekend. I walked my whole distance today. It took me about five minutes longer because my upper leg is still bothering me. It's hard for me to sit comfortably at the computer.
Being so paranoid about my back, I'm wondering if it is something more than muscle spasms. I know that x-rays are only at best 45% effective. But, I do have a doctor appointment on Monday. I will find out if my thyroid activity has improved and will ask again about my leg. By now, she should have all the records from the Alabama doctors.
I don't want to come across as a whiner, but I know it sounds like I am. After four years, I am just tired of the back pain. I just want my regular life back. I realize there are things I will never be able to do again, like lifting heavy objects or bending too much. But I want to feel somewhat normal.
