What is? Sciatica. I have been really suffering for the last two weeks. I didn’t lift anything or move suddenly. I woke up in pain and it hasn’t left. I went to the doctor, and he gave me some anti-inflammatory meds and some muscle relaxants. I am not sure if they are helping as the muscle relaxants put me into a fog of fatigue and sleepiness. The pain that shoots down my leg is horrible – it’s like electric shocks from my butt to my toes. Over and over and over.
Many people have suggested chiropractors and osteopaths and relexologists – but I am not even sure if I believe in them – paying out of pocket for something you aren’t convinced will help you seems an exercise in futility if you ask me.
So for the meantime I am resting up as much as I can, the KoD is spoiling me rotten and not letting me lift a finger. I had a list a mile long of things I wanted to accomplish this week with the boys not being here. I guess it will have to wait.
Sigh. Where’s my heating pad?
