I'm sorry I haveen't been on lately. Sitting at my computer was sending my pain levels through the roof and I just couldn't sit long enough to reply. But..
I got a laptop--yay!--which enables me to use my computer anywhere, which is great. Much better. Still adjusting to it, but I have a feeling it's going to a relief. I'm a writer, and wasn't able to get anything done without hurting. Hopefully I can get some work done now.
So, I had my appt. with the pain management doctor last week, and nothing new, really. He was very puzzled by my symptoms, since they don't match the results of my MRI, so he is sending me to a PT who specializes in spine problems to help get a beat on where my pain generators are. I will go to the PT twice, then check back in with the doctor. Sheesh, it takes forever get anything done.
Also, he said the whole right side of my back was in spasm--yeeow! He prescribed Baclofen, but I don't think it works as well as the Tranxene or Flexeril, plus it gave me a headache. So I'll just use the others. Anyone had any luck with Baclofen?
The last few days have been better pain-wise, but still not great. It's wearing me down...you all know how that is, right?
Thanks for listening!
