Troubles, and more troubles

Thursday, August 08, 2013

Well, per my previous blog I have been having trouble once again with my old classic corvette. It does seem to be working once again, so I can get back into the gym yet again. Only problem was my lower back went out again. I really feel like an old lady when this happens and worse I even smell (LOL) like one due to the fact I have to put on a Ben Gay type product. Living on Tylenol during the day and back patches at night. It went out of place from laying on the chair at the dentists office. I know that sounds weird, since they have these really comfy chairs. They are all padded, and you get laid out almost upside down (or so it seems) so the dentist can sit & doesn't get back aches. Only thing was as soon as they raised me back up to upright position, I felt my back start to really hurt. I have lower back stenosis, so wasn't much of a surprise. But it just got worse, and then I could hardly move around the house. So today was the best the old back has felt since the end of the month. Will rest up a few more days and jump slowing back into the swing of things.

How's everyone else doing?

    Hope your back is pain free once again and that your vette is running like a top! Have you made it back to the gym? I've been living on Alieve for the past week due to back pain. I think my problem is my bed and my pillow! Both need replaced and bad!! I've missed you! Stop by the AMC team some day to say hello! Take care! ~~Melissa~~

    I have noticed that my "aches and pains" seem to be cyclical--I'm going great and something hurts, so I slow down to let it heal and then have to start all over again!

    Wow! That old Corvette is turning into quite the money pit :(((
I have discovered even the slightest thing can throw your back out. Happened twice to me the last couple of weeks :( I had a bone scan and the diagnosis was a new form of arthritis is attacking my back, shoulders and feet. Brings to three the number of arthritis diseases I have :(( This new stuff is NOT being controlled by my RA meds. As luck would have it, my poor specialist has leukemia and had to give up her practise. As Specialists in immunology are few and far between here, the wait lists to get in to see one are long, if they accept new patients at all. The one I applied for has three years!!
I have been at least having fun at my city's plethora of festivals -boat festival, jazz festival, exhibition and fringe, all within the last four weeks!
Hope you continue to feel better!

    ouch...I know I'm developing stenosis (my mom and brother have it too) but I'm pretty much in denial about it because I don't want to deal with any more medical stuff right now.

Hang in there with will get better!

    You are really having problems with your Corvette!! Hope they get totally resolved soon. I also understand the back issue and chairs where they lay you back. Even in the beauty shop. Those chairs are back breaking. I am tall and have to sit on the very edge of the chair so that my neck is resting in the right place. Yep, I am only a fan of my recliner for reclining:)D Take care and I hope your back is better soon!!
