Terrible day of pain! I spent 4 hours this morning at a computer, getting up every 15 or 20 minutes to walk around. By the end, I was ready go into a self-induced coma. It started in my hands and worked up my arms then to the neck. Pain, numbness, more pain :''(
It seems, as long as I am on my feet at work I do relatively okay with what I could consider tolerable level 4 to 6 pain. I sit down to do paperwork and it ratchets up more and more the longer I sit there. It was a solid 8 by the end of the 4 hours. I had to go home early. And I’m still at a 7.
Yesterday I was ready to go another month without the ACDF. Today, not so much.
As long as I can stand up and/or walk most of the time at work, I'll be able to keep working. Anyone else find sitting to be that painful?
