Writing to have a place where people understand pain, so I am not a pain to family and friends. Got a pretty bad lower spine, very little disc space. The team says, in the catagory of the worst they see. My first time with severe nerve pain.
Started with using a suggested ARC aeroboc machine from a trainer!!!! I decided to use my ice more consistenly rather than expect prednisone to do it all. the taper isn't helping a lot, so far. Am starting to meditate, do Reiki on myself, trying to keep out the fear thoughts. Have a very good team, PT, chiro, docs. Goal to officiate my son's wedding in Seattle, across the country for me March 28. I hear having a crutch gives you more attention (:- )
I just want to get there!!! Am a candidate for spinal injections. Using tramadol and tylenol for pain.
The sun is out, I will see my grandkids today, a place to give and receive love.
