Back pain.

Post  Abby on Wed Nov 07, 2018 8:53 pm

Been suffering back pain for years, first started when I slipped on a wet floor while holding at the time my 6 month old child. I fell backwards onto the stairs. Unable to save my self as I cocooned my boy to protect him. Several years of therapy and pilaties it was doing and going well. until the new job, when it started to hurt again, and since the wedding of my brother it has gone to another level can't even stand up straight, hurts to bend , to sit up, to sit down. Had to leave work at 10am today as the pain was just to much. Got an MRI on Friday (crazy fast for the NHS) so hopefully find out if it's a disk or nerve problem.
Still take my mind off the disphoria!

Yeah have a messed up back too with bad disks. What I found helps is weed. But I'm gonna see a specialist soon, hopefully my insurance will cover that, cause it's not even covering my hormones.

Tramadol is not really cutting it these days, weed just makes me depressed the next day so I have not used it for years. Trying the oil at the moment, the one with out THC, as it's the only legally available, does not seem to work.

The ones I do have THC. Wasn't it legalized today?
The thing about it is, the part about getting high is what helps heal. Without getting high its just like meh, heals somewhat but not fully. Because if you're not high your still thinking negative thoughts and feeling despair and stressed. Which is not helpful to healing yourself.

Of all of the great apes we, homo sapiens, are the only one to walk upright - and what a curse it is. I can only hope your injury is correctable with surgery meant to relieve pressure against your nerves. Please think twice, three times and once more if the want to fuse your vertebrae in the area of the injury. The success rate is less than 50% and it can exacerbate the injury.

I have a 'classroom example' cervical spine and while I can get through the day with three doses of hydrocodone - I wish I didn't have my neck. Motocross racing in my early twenties gave me the arthritis I now have.

About 30 years ago I did a really stupid thing - I showed off my 'strength' by deadlifting one end of a 700# glulam beam. As soon as I got beam off the support I felt my joint at L4-L5 crush. It wasn't too bad, but limited my motion significantly (couldn't play golf). Just after 9/11, it started to really act up, and if I were sitting at a desk and moved wrong - BAM!, I would be on the floor.

I don't know how, but the L4-5 injury eventually healed itself.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.

Feels like its in the L5 S1 region, had to take the day off again today as the pain was to much again. Work said to take my time to recover, but its is stressing me out not being there as i really like this job. But I do need to recover. Sad
