I'm not intending to really sound like I am complaining with this. I am more confused about the symptoms than anything else.
Saturday and Sunday I spent 2-3 hours each day cleaning in my attic. Bad idea, but needed done, long story as to why I could not make my kid do it. I finished up Sunday and went out in the yard to gather some old tarps, the lightweight junky ones to bag and throw away. My back had already done some light spasms before the yard trip. Then, Of course, while out in the yard I slipped on a wet grassy slope and jarred my back pretty good. Still no pain, but I knew that was bad. ANY hard shock like that or lifting any more than 30-40 lbs is going to hurt me. I finished bagging the tarps, went in the house and took flexeril and surrendered to my recliner. Hoping that things would be ok.
Now, to the point of the post. Sunday I had a few spasms in the center of my back between my shoulder blades. Woke up Monday with my upper back shoulder to shoulder on fire, deep burning very strong pain. I fought it all day with Flexeril, Valium and the SCS turned up down and sideways! Went home at 5:00 and just took an Ambien and passed out. I figured sleep was better than the burning pain. What has me perplexed is Tuesday the pain had become vertical running up and down the entire right side of my back! not across like before, now it was from the pocket of my SCS to my right ear! All day, getting worse start to finish so I went home and did the Ambien thing again! I also noticed that the right outer side of my right leg is numb.
My pain is down to about norm today, still have the slightly increased numbness on my leg but no pain there. Riding/driving on the rough roads around here is just plain painful again now that it is cold, ugh.
I'm really perplexed by the symptoms? I am unsure how my body took what I did to it and transferred it into those pains and the way they varied?
Anyone have any ideas? very strange...I expected some discomfort after my activities, what I got is just plain weird. I guess it just validates the point that something is not wired right here. Yeah, I know, probably the part between my ears?
