I got back from a trip to the Bahamas a couple of weeks ago and I was virtually pain free! Wow, what a miracle! <:P
I pinned my PT down to give me a target for when I could be discharged. He said when I can consistantly do 30 roll ups and my pain is stabalized. I did 30 rollups last Thursday and felt so optomisitic! Now I'm hurting again. My PT worked on my neck last night because my left arm was hurting. Today I can barely turn my head. I am very frustrated. Maybe the Dr. should give me a prescription to visit a tropical island once a month???? >:D<
I'm sure the PT is not causing the pain because it has helped so much overall. The only thing I can figure is that it's my set up at work. I'm usually out on sales calls, but have been at my desk a lot since I got back. The company is installing a keyboard holder for me and giving me a keyboard and mouse for my laptop. I will put my laptop on a stand so I don't have to look down at it. Maybe that will help. I sure hope so.
I see a neurologist on the 25th. She's also an OD so I feel pretty confident that she won't recommend sugery unless it's absolutely necessary. I'm just sooo tired of medications that make me sleepy, PT, pain and feeling in limbo. I keep hoping that I can conquer this, but every time I think I've made progress I end up right back where I started..... :<
