So right in the middle of the holidays, I hurt myself.
Woke up one morning and could not stand up. I managed to, after a bit of a fight with myself, get to the bathroom and do the bathroom things... Hubby insisted I try to stand so he could help me get dressedsince I could not bend down either, and I almost passed out, cold sweats and vision going black and all. So he got me into acceptable cloths, gave me a face cloth to wipe off with (cold sweats) and we headed to the ER. The ER took Xrays and sent me home doped up.
In "traction" as my hubby put it, I spent 3 weeks and a few days laid out unable to do much but lay flat and try not to scream in pain.
Finally saw my doctor, who had been on vacation, who sent me for an MRI (something the hospital would not do, even when requested) and found I had a herniated disc and arthritis in both my hips.
AHA! back trouble, I should have known. Hubby has back problems and thought what I was going through looked familar.
So since then, and after gaining a bit back, I am back to working out, have found that a little running doesn't hurt and weights are good.
Back to work, girl!
