Things looking up

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

good morning: I have much to feel grateful today. I got a good night sleep. I went to doctor yesterday - she is wonderful. She listened to me. I told her about the pain that wakes me up at night so I do not get good sleep. I told her I do not want any strong pain killer. I want to get into PT again. She gave me a steroid pack for inflammation and muscle relaxer. I got a full night's sleep for the first time in 3 weeks. Found out that Medicare pays for PT. Medicare does not pay for massages. My masseuse was great but every time I went it was $79. I was using GC that DH gave me for Christmas which I have used. So I am getting into PT. I have my first appointment today. I am grateful that I have not gained weight during this process. today is a new day and a bright day for me. Soon I will be in balance again- sciatica pain is no fun! Have a good day!!! emoticon

    I'm so happy you got help and a good night's sleep. Steroid packs are great for inflammation and pain relief. When I go to PT, the therapist usually does do some massage along with having me do exercises. I hope you continue to feel better and better!!
