Back to the begining....again.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Well, I am sure most you of have noticed that I have not been very active on here lately. I was working a ton and getting the girls ready for all of their things. I have been selling Watkins at the local Farmer's Market and loving it! Had a couple shows for both Watkins and the oils, which were a blast. Things were looking up......

And then......

This past Saturday while setting up the Farmer's Market, I moved the wrong way and the back went poof. Had to get myself to the ground very slowly and lay as flat as I could to get the spasms to stop. Didn't work well! Spasms were coming quickly and lasting a long time. NO ONE saw me! There I was laying on the concrete rolling back and forth in the little pieces of gravel moaning and no one noticed. FINALLY, the asst. director come up and called hubby for me, got me some meds I had in my purse and then went and got the director who is also a nurse. She called 911 and made me go to the ER. So hubby got babysitter and met me there. What a joke that was! Sat there forever (well OK laid) waiting for an xray (yeah I said that)....xray on one with 4 herniated disks and DDD) that the resident ordered only to be seen 2 1/2 hours later by another doctor that actually ordered it. All they gave me while there was a small dose of Toradol and a Norco which I had already taken. They then added Flexeril to my list of meds and told me not to take my other pain meds??? LIKE THAT IS GONNA HAPPEN. Well here it is 3 days later and I am still spasming. No appt. with doc until next week; can't get ahold of pain doc until tomorrow at the earliest. WHAT A WEEK! I have not had these spasms like this since before my surgery in "04. Not making me a happy camper. I can't start htis process all over again. I can not take this pain anymore. Guess I am going to start looking for another doctor and see what they say my options are, because this just go on with it as is is not working for me!

    Thanks guys. I need the lift! It's been a long time since I have had to deal with this much pain and it really brings me down. I did call the doc back though and made them get me in sooner. No way can I lay in bed another week!!

    This is truly unacceptable. You definately need to find a different doctor. Even if you have to maintain with the same one through this episode, you need to find someone who will help you for the long term. I know they don't want to you to become dependent on pain medication, but there are also times that it is appropriate. You need someone who can work with you as you need. Good luck and I hope you recover soon.
