last November (29) I bend over to clean up after my dog and hit the ground ... as I’m alone I crawl to my car, vomit in parking lot, manage to get myself to urgent care.
fastforward to drs and MRI later I have 2 bulging discs L4 and L5. I complete a year of PT, watching and limiting what I do, taking supplements and prednisone when needed and occasional muscle relaxers. I’d have good weeks then BAM completely out and down again... this went on about 4 times during the year. Last week I go in for new MRI (which shows a bulge and tear at L4 as well as a double herniation of L5/S1) and decide to do the epidural cortisone injection.
This was a few days ago and pain is still there but different - Which I’m hoping is a good sign.
This last year has just killed me. I went from running multiple days a week, doing yoga and being active with my 3 Dogs to this girl who can’t do anything for herself or anything in general. Constant discomfort, disturbed sleep patterns, and more. I’ve gaibed 10 lbs, all I want to do is eat And my mood has pretty much completely declined.
So frustrated. I want my life back. Anyone feel the same?
Question for you all- How many of you are dealing with a chronic pain condition that may have a "label" but there is no clear causes or treatments available? Why are so many of us in pain and what is causing all this untreatable pain in so many people? Why are we all suffering? Ideas? Comments? Theories? xo
A way to lose me. She seems burned out with me. She said she never quit and I would have to fire her first. It is like she wants me to get over the past and my self-hate. Cannot help but think she is the one that wants it so bad.I am hurt and know I could not take losing her, but if she is burned out I will quit therapy and not get anyone else. I have trust issues with people anyway.
