Prayer Needed

Thursday, September 15, 2011

Whoever believes in prayer, if you could keep me in prayer, I'd appreciate it. I've been dealing with some really bad back pain lately, for a week now actually. It's pain in my lower back, on the right side, it was so bad that I went to the ACC (Acute Care Clinic) last Friday after hubby got home from work, I couldn't stand or walk straight, I was tilted to the right. The doc said it because my muscles were spasming up. They gave me 2 shots, Toradol & Valium and sent me home with, Ibuprofen & Cyclobenzaprine. I went on Monday to get checked again & that doc didn't help much, he seemed like 1 to hurry you through the appt, other than to tell me that I need to go to physical therapy and if that doesn't help, then I should get an mri to see what's going on. I have an appt for physical therapy next Tues. It makes it very hard to do my normal everyday tasks that I need to do, like take care of the boys or myself, take care of things around the house, etc. So just keep me in prayer that this gets figured out, it's not the first time this has happened either, I've had this back issue, several times over the years off and on, since I was a teenager & it seems every time I have gone to a doc about it, they act like there's nothing wrong. But this is the 2nd time since having this happen, since having my son and he's already 6 1/2 months. Anyway, I'm not sure how long I'll be dealing with this pain, I've been dealing with it for a week already, I'm hoping it'll stop soon, but I don't know... Once I'm able to do things without much pain, I know what I'm going to do though. I'm going to get serious with this weight loss thing, I mean it... I know that's partly why I'm having these issues again.

Thanks for all prayers,

    I hope by the time you're reading this your prayers have been answered, if not I'll be praying for you. A boy that young needs his mom as fully functional as possible so I hope you and docs can figure this out. I agree that excess weight can make low back pain even worse. When I was at my highest the pain was unbearable at times but as the weight slowly came off, and I added some strength training, it seemed to work itself out. emoticon

    Hi. I hope you feel better. That's awful. When I was pregnant with my son, my back was hurting so bad that I thought I was going into early labor. It turned out to be a kidney stone. I had the kidney stone from Valentine's Day (that's when I went to the hospital!) to July 14. (A month after my son was born.) It was my lower right side, too. You might want them to check for that! Prayers and positive thoughts coming your way.

    Hope you recover quickly, back spasms do take a lot out of you. Get rest where you can and best wishes for a speedy return to normal.
