It was 95* here today. So I went to the pool at my Condo. It's small, but feels so wonderful. At the end of last summer I could swim 10-12 laps without getting sore, just tired. I swam 3 laps today, was exhausted, my neck and shoulders hurt, and now my lower back and legs are screaming ouch ~X( Swimming is the only exercise I can do. Does anyone know how fast stenosis progresses? Have been trying to get another MRI of my lower back, it's been almost 2 years now, and the insurance company keeps denying it.24 weeks of PT last winter did nothing except drain my wallet. I may have to take extra pain pills tonight, just to get some sleep. The hot packs aren't helping, I should probably get my TENS on, but hate to stand up to go get it, but will after I post this. What is a person to do? Just whining, sorry about that. Hope everyone else is doing better than I am tonight. Take care.
