Feeling good today overall...just dealing with the pain from the sciatic nerve. But I remembered that I had one of those Tens machine things. You can buy them here in Mexico without going through a doctor. So I have that on the area where the pain is coming from and hope it knocks it down a bit. My doctor prescribed both Lyrica and
Celebrex for the sciatic nerve. I did take them but I guess you have to take them for a while to have them work as I saw no difference. I was told to take the Lyrica at night...I swear though that it made me a bit dizzy and I am not sure I will continue with it. I will use the Tens and walk with my foot turned out and see if that will work. God only knows that I don't need to add more meds to my already long list of stuff I am taking. Sometimes I feel that all I am doing is taking pills.
Anyway if anyone here has any experience with either of those drugs let me know if they work for you.
It rained again here last night and so nice to get up to the clean fresh air. I will for sure get out and walk the dogs. Nothing else on the agenda but will find something to do. It's funny being here in Mexico when there are holidays in the states but not here. No Memorial Day here. But seeing TV from the states keeps me plugged in to what's going on. God Bless all those that served and sacrificed for our country.
Hope all of you are having a great week end.
