I would not wish this on my enemy. Im still down. Back is still jacked up. So last Tuesday after work I went to the walk in clinic, that tells you how bad my back hurt. I never voluntarily see a doctor. So I went to the clinic and they told me pretty much what I thought they were going to say. Pinched nerve in my back. Gave me some painkillers and a anti inflammatory. Those pills didnt even scratch the surface. Wednesday I closed the store and went home in the afternoon. I never do that. Then by Thursday morning I got out of bed somehow, fell to the floor and could not get up. I called my wife to come get me and take me to the ER. I have broke many bones in my life but this is by far the worst pain I have ever felt. Almost to the point of passing out.
So I get to the ER Thursday, the second Doc visit in two days. And was told the same thing. But they did take pictures of my back and hip just to make sure. And gave me much better pain pills that Im taking today.
Then, I went to see my MD Doc on Friday. Thats 3 different Doctors in four days. He went into more detail what’s going on. And the only thing I can do is sit and wait. Today is day 12. No changes. It still takes me 45 minutes to get out of bed in pain. I still can’t dress myself. I only have 4 days of pain pills left.
Im pretty bummed out. Ive tried heat pads, ice packs and stretching. Nothing changes it. I have physical therapy scheduled for the 22nd. By then will be 20 days in pain. It hurts my spine just to move my head. Im in tears getting out of bed every morning. Not sure how long a human can keep doing that without going nuts.
That’s all I have for now. I most likely wont post anything until things improve. Lets hope thats sooner than later.
