I have never felt this type of pain in my life !! Yes I have other hernations, protrusions, sclerosis, deg dis disease, bone to bone...but this t-spine is the worst..I feel like I have a couple of huge hot pokers in my back 24/7. Round the clock meds, cant sleep more than 4 hours a night and actually have to wait till im exhausted to go to bed with pain pills and muscle relaxers. I went to an acupressurist which sounded good 2 hours for $40 since nobody was really doing anything for me if anything can actually be done ! I had 3 days of moderate pain NOT SEVERE..But the 4th day OMG ! I was in 10 times the amount of pain i was in, in the first place !!!!! I can honestly say my only real pain relief is the SWIMMING POOL !!! No pressure !! Now if i could just live there or go live with Shamu i think i could deal with it...Just so exhausted !! I has changed my life dramatically !! Can't stand for very long or take long walks because my legs start shaking..Sitting well that doesnt last long either..and its finally to the point of laying now...Pillow between the legs, pillow under your side, pillow under the stomach..it all doesnt matter...I sleep like a washing machine!!!!!! Anyone have any advice for me?
