I am beginning to feel that my condition may be worse than my test have revealed.
How do they know if the condition is worse than the mri's or x rays show? Is it the pain and or time it takes for it to get better or it remains the same? Or is it more symptoms developing as time goes on and nothing is working??
I have minimal to moderate Osteoarthritis, bone spurs, and impingement narrowing on the left side of C5/C6, as well as a herniated/ruptured disc in that area.
The past two weeks I've been having worse headaches, my spine from my skull down about five inches hurts, the back of my neck hurts more, my lower back hurts more...Muscle relaxer works most of the time but I have to take more than half of a soma to get it to feel better so I can sleep. I get sleep but I don't think it is as restful the past two weeks...I get up once or twice.
I find myself taking naps to get away from it. I ice it up and heat it up. It could be that I spend most of my time sitting during the week, but I mean I should be able to be lazy. I've been crying about it the past two days. I'm not sure if things are worse because perhaps my depression may be coming back or maybe it is pms or just my condition.
Any support or stories is welcomed. I just feel like crying, the constant ache is so nagging and makes me just want to jump out of my skin.
