I'm in the home stretch before my L5S1 MicroD..
I went off of ALL anti-inflammatories a week ago.. and it's been miserable.
For the few days before I stopped the meds, I thought, do I REALLY need to do this? I felt a lot better.. Then it happened.
About 3 days after stopping the meds, I realized I've GOT to do this.. I haven't had this much nerve pain EVER... It's just NUTS.
The bottoms of my feet keep feeling like someone is dumping hot and cold water on them.. and my lower back is really sore..
Then, there's the pins and needles.. they've never been worse..
Before, I had really faint, tiny, diffuse, almost "high frequency" tingling.. Now, the tingling has become much more intense and the hot and cold seems to intensify all of it.
Not sure how I'm going to make it through another 8 days.. My normal extension exercises which usually centralize this out of my legs hurt and for the most part aren't working.
8 more days..
