How is everyone? Probably hurting and irritable like myself. I was injuried at work in Febuary 2010. My injury caused a pinched nerve in the L5 S1 region. Since workmans comp took so long to deny my surgery the nerve more than likely is perminatly damaged. Along with herniated disk, degenerated disk, arthritis , and etc. I've had two back surgeries, six steroid injections and a Spinalcord Stimulator implanted in my back. I'm on a Fentanyl pain patch, morphine, gabapentin, naproxen, and a heavy dose of stool softeners. ( All those meds will bind you up). And I still hurt 24/7. I have good days and bad days. Last Friday 10/2 I had an epidural injection in my tail bone. ( right in the crack) it's made me feel worse. All my pain is my lower back and my right leg. Now it's my lower back an left leg. Plus it feels like something in my spine is moving if I move wrong. Which sends a crazy intense pain up my back. It's a very difficult life to live being in pain all the time. The depression, mood swings, angry as hell, and so on is making me insane. Thank God he blessed me with an incredible wife. I actually find myself making my pain hurt more intense, just for a temporary moment of relief when I stop doing it. Sounds weird but I recon I'm am as well. Y'all take care and keeping praying to God for strength.
