My Body Is Failing Me
Monday, June 28, 2010
Okay, I am finally admitting defeat. This sciatica won't go away. I've tried heat, Chinese herbal patches, anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants. The combination of drugs helps, but leaves me a zombie who can barely get out of bed. That means I don't exercise and ultimately gain weight.
This past weekend, I worked thru the pain and really feel it this morning.
So, it's time to try something new.
This is summer. The time of year when I'm most active and want to be outside enjoying myself. I can't let my body betray me.
So, I'm looking for an accupuncturist to see if that can help. I need something and it's clear traditional drug therapy is not the answer. I'm too young to be completely side-lined.
