Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Back seizing up at night, can't move once I sit at end of the day - thought surgery would help with
Well, I have been very optimistic about my surgery and the results. I know I am only 3 weeks out and have a lot of healing to do but I am starting to get a taste of what is better (fixed) and what is not!
I can walk with less pain - yay!
I can bend and move with less pain - yay!
BUT... two nights ago my back seizing up at the end of the day started back up again.
I am fine all day (I even walked a mile today) but at night, I sit on the couch to watch TV for 1-2 hours to unwind before bed and then I can't get up. My body does not want to straighten out. When I force it (which I now need someone to stand in front of me to hold on to) to straighten out, I get INCREDIBLE searing pain! It goes away a second later but my body just gets stuck in the sitting position and can't straighten. I can't even adjust myself from a lying down position to a sitting position without pain once I have been sitting (only at the end of the day) for a hour or more!
WHAT IS THE DEAL???? Anyone else have this? What can I do?
