Baby Got Back(ache)
Wednesday, June 26, 2013
OK... so it started Sunday afternoon, while still working on lopping trees and carrying the brush to the street, but I stopped upon pricking my finger on a thorny weed. Figured THAT would be my 'injury of the day' as I usually end up with something.
Nope, that wasn't enough. My back continued hurting, and so bad that I couldn't stand upright and walk Monday morning. Nor all day Monday. I had taken a flexeril Sunday night, after a nice soak in the tub with epsom salt. To no avail. More flexeril Monday evening at bedtime, and still yesterday it hurt too much to move around. So, after 2 sick days, I'm still in pain, altho' I don't guess quite as severe.
Have put in a call to the gastro doc, since so many doses of flexeril haven't relaxed it, I'm wondering if it isn't muscular after all. Still waiting on the call back from that doc's office - I could only leave a message on the nurse's v/mail. So, here I sit in pain at work, heating pad warming my lower back. Waiting in pain. Just couldn't stomach another day of Law & Order: SVU re-runs today LOL
The thing that is killing me most, is that I've barely gotten any steps at all. Monday's steps apparently didn't register while I had the softest shuffle-walk, and the One attached to the jammy top that I wore all day. I know I can't beat myself up for not hitting the elliptical or doing videos, when I can't even stand/walk without excruciating pain. But, still... it's so frustrating knowing that all I can do is control intake at this point. & of course, you're never as hungry as when you are just sitting around!!!
Depending on the results of the callback from the gastro doc, I think I just may go on to urgent care. & wouldn't you know, our interwebz at work (area-wide, not just ours) just went down. I can't even post this!!! GAH!
Guess I'll copy this to notepad for later...
