It's time...


Today, while preparing for the board meeting, in front of one of the trustees, my trusty ol' back decided to go ahead and do it spasm thing.
Oh joy!
After presenting my report, I left early for home. I told the board my back was not happy, knowing the chair of the board had witness said spasm had its benefits. So I was earlier than expected on the home front, as my hubby didn't get to prepare his planned supper. I told him leftovers were absolutely fine, miraculous even. I just wanted to eat supper. My body is not liking the naproxen the last few days.


Tomorrow - I just have to write a newsletter article, and prepare September and October calendars (schedules?) at work then it will be the weekend.


Then or perhaps earlier, I will call the dr's office and see if I can get in (again) or see his assistant or something. I think it is time to stop and hope that my neck can be fixed soon. I will also call my attorney and check on the progress for the worker's compensation hearing. I really cannot tolerate much more of this right now.


It is time this awful pain has got to stop. Today it hurts into my right elbow, and hand, besides the numbness. It is time for this to finally be fixed. I am up to my eyeballs in this.


On a happy note, I did manage to walk 3.15 miles at work - surprisingly.


And it is time for me to finish up on the desktop quickly, and go rest the back/neck.

And, I apologize again for bemoaning the fact of moaning. This in its own strange way is quite therapeutic for me: Just to be able to type out my frustrations and pain helps, maybe not the pain, but the aggravation.

    You are worth taking the time to call the doctor first thing.

    It's amazing to me that, in spite of everything, you still walked more than 3 miles today! That really shows your determination!

    I have spinal stenosis and sciatica which I try to treat with OTC drugs, like Naprozen, Tylenol, Aleve and Advil. I found that I have to keep switching them out because something will work for a few weeks and then will just stop working! I used Naprozen a few months ago and, as I said, it just stopped. Now I'm taking Tylenol for Arthritis. While you're waiting for your doctor, do you think you might want to try another OTC pain med?

    You might need to see a neurologist if your nerves are involved.

    Good luck with all of this! I know how it can just get to you after a while! Pain sure has a negative effect on quality of life.

    Have you been using heat or ice? I personally use ice most of the time, but you can try alternating them. The heat works well for muscle spasms and the ice for the inflammation. You might also try to find a massage therapist-you don't need a doctor's orders to see one. I hope you feel better soon!
