Update on New Symptoms

Well the back problem hasn't gotten any better. I finally went to a clinic here who took me serious. In fact they very dramatic about my symptoms being serious. They sent me for a immediate MRI and gave me an appointment to a neurosurgeon. Said I may need surgery to fix a trapped nerve. I don't know the MRI results and won't know till I see the specialist and we all know how long it takes to get in to one of them. So I have over 2 weeks to wait this pain out. My pain is much better sitting at an incline or laying down. Sitting up watching tv or using computer hurts after a short while. Lately sleeping is not easy even while laying down my bottom gets to hurting. Nothing I can't handle. But we all hate to see new symptoms appear and with me they
are always "chronic"! So I've been really taking it easy. No lifting, pulling, tugging, toting, carrying, bending, reaching, or basically anything! Let's just say I am so blessed to have a husband who is supportive and understanding. Yes it gets to him at times and I can't blame him. But I am so thankful for him. So as I've been laying around I've had many topic ideas to pop in my head and as I can sit up and write I will posting quite a few short topics! Stay Tuned!


  1. Karen, Sorry U are suffering so much.

  2. Please be careful when they say surgery. I am well aware of your pain and I am not trying to say it isn't serious, but make sure you explore every avenue before taking that route. If that's what they say. I have had a lot of experience with back pain, personally and with friends. One with compressed (pinched)nerves cleared up regular visits to the chiropractor (a very good), and the other in the shoulder, same thing but with acupuncture. Both were told they needed surgery and they are now fine and doing great without it! I myself found great relief with chiropractic care and an occasional deep tissue massage (thank you groupon!). That being said I know sometimes surgery is the only answer and it can bring great relief. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!!
