well i had let work know i was going back, i paid out for my prof ins and was looking forward to getting on with it despite pain in back of head.
weekend before last i got up in morning with huge difficulty, 8/10 pain in lower back, from mid buttock, down back of left leg, front bottom of leg and into foot. walking is a nightmare, after a couple of days and it not getting better i went to dr who thinks this is not to do with my neck and is sending me for emergancy appointment with surgeon. that has come through for end of month so will let you all know how i get on.. frustrated as hell, disappointed not to be able to resume work. and beginning to wonder just what i am going to be dealing with next!
