It's never a good time, but I suppose this is as good a time as any being winter. This episode began in July with another flare up in AZ over Thanksgiving. Coming back the episode subsided and I even went pill free entirely. And then another flare up on 12/23. Left work, made it to the doctor, medrol, anti immflammatories. Made it through xmas eve. Xmas night licked me though, getting into car killed me and I went down at my parents unable to get up. Oxycodone could not get me up. He'll if I was going to miss Christmas dinner so I had my dad bring me a plate to the floor and I shoveled it down.

  • Firstly... Good on you! I wouldn't miss dinner after an agonising car ride either...
    I would think it's time to think about getting a certified spine surgeon to look at some imaging (MRI) of your spine. It would be nice to know what is going on there and know what options are available to you.
