News on the homefront

Hi all...

Sorry I have been so quiet. I had lots of plans for upcoming things that have been put on the back burner. My back went out on me on Saturday, and I couldnt move. Had to call paramedics to take me to the hospital to be tested to see what was wrong. They did an MRI on me and I have Sciatica. I have never had back problems so this was a shock to me. I have been laid up at home in bed on meds. Im going stir crazy. I like to keep busy but right now my back has held me back and got me down.

I wanted to let you all know so if you have sent me and email or anything, just wanted you all to know that I will get back to you asap when I can get up and around again. I have another doctors appt this morning to get referred to a Neurologist. Praying all goes well, I dont want to be on these 4 meds forever. I cant drive on them or I could get a DUI, thats how strong they are. It's even hard to type all of this. lol

Thanks for understanding and being patient.
Hugs,
Jenny

I've had my back go out every so often and it is THE most painful thing EVER! Not being able to MOVE except in excruciating pain, even something as simple as turning in bed or doing necessary things in the bathroom cause you to break out in a sweat just thinking of how painful the tasks will be. Hope you feel better soon and they can help you so this doesn't happen often. HUGS!

Barb said...

Oh Jenny- I am so sorry and can so identify! Last Monday mine went out and I literally fell to the ground- I had to call a friend who was nearby to come help me get up. My chiro thinks that I have a herniated disc. It's just now getting to where I can stand/move for longer than 30 minutes at a time and even that is iffy. All that to say hugs and prayers!

Oh no!!!! Hang in there! Wish I lived closer to help take care of you!!!!!

There is nothing worse than having your back go out... no fun.. been there... do what the doc says! Our best remedy has been morning stretches and back strengthening exercizes. It's part of 'life' now!

My thoughts and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery!

Isha said...

I hope you feel better soon Jenny. take care of yourself and let your back be better before you start straining it again. I had back problem last 2 weeks and it was painful.

Celine Jo @ eyeARTyou said...

Dear Jenny,

Sorry to hear you were in pain. I found online that Sciatica is a symptom of another medical problem, not a medical condition on its own.

I too have had unexplainable sharp sudden pain which made me collapse while walking. And for other reasons, I was on medication as well but have discontinued, so I totally understand how one would not want to be on med forever. Anyway for the meantime, no matter how much you want to keep yourself busy, try your best to rest and do not exert yourself.

Keeping you in prayers. May God heal you, Jenny.

xx,
Celine Jo

(((HUGS))) I hope your neuro appt goes well. I have been laid up some too I fractured my toe and have to wear a boot and can't drive or go anywhere. I can't imagine having that with my back though, you are probably bed ridden most the day :-( I hear ya on how you go stir crazy being inside though. I will PRAY that everything at the neuro Dr. goes well and that your back get's better SOON!

Jen W. said...

Hang in there, Jenny! Hope the docs can provide you with some relief. And don't worry, we'll be her when you're back on your feet. :)

Jen said...

Awwww, Jenny, I've had Sciatica long ago and it was all down one leg too...oh my does it hurt! I would lay down flat on the floor cause that's how I felt better. I will tell you that therapy does work! I did that and ever since then, I make a habit of stretching all the time! Hope you feel better soon, but don't rush it. We will all be here still! *smile*
Take care Jenny!
