My Doctor put me on some new pain meds about a month ago and boy did it help. The knawing pain down my legs stopped and it dulled my lower back pain and help with the burning sensation at the base of my ribs. So after a year of pain I was feeling petty good. Then.......
Thursday decided to go and watch my friend at a dressage competition. 20 minute drive and standing for an hour or so (not too much). Afterward I started to feel a little odd, lightheaded. I took a short walk over to the office to get the score and suddenly I had a searing pain like someone had put a clamp around my hips and embarassingly I hit the deck (was good and muddy too!). Couple of people came to help me up, I could have curled up and died I was so embarrased. Anyway, got up and made it to the car managed to get home by hanging on the steering wheel like my life depended on it. Got home put on an ice pack and laid down for 2 hours and all seemed well.
By Friday morning just the dull ache, but over the last 3 days this has progressed to burning across my hips right up my spine to the middle of my shoulder blades. Still taking my pain meds but it won't go away.
Have I just over done it? Am I stressing more than I think about my surgery next Monday and doing this to myself? Just really confused
