O.k. It's been a crappy week, but I survived!! I had the nerve conduction test which showed I have some mild neuropathy in L5. I had a MRI which showed I had bulging from L2-3 L3-4 L-4-L5 and L5-S1 with slight canal narrowing. I had the facet joint block. I will not be doing that again. I need to vent so here we go.. The nurse couldn't find a vein so she stuck me several times. The doctor stuck me twice, but Praise God he found a vein on the second time. They wheeled me into the ER with no meds prior. I climbed over on to the Table and they but a BP cuff on me, hooked me up to Oxygen and put the surgical drape over me and then when the DR came in he wanted to know if I wanted some "happy Juice" they gave me a shot in my channel lock and proceded. I could feel everything!!! They gave me some more fentayl in my channel lock and still I could feel everything. I cried the whole time and when they took me back to my curtain, they took my BP 220/175 and they made me wait until my BP went down which it did to 200/140 and they sent me home and told my husband not to let me take any meds for 3 days. I cried all the way to the car and all the way home. I called them the next day and they are closed on Friday. I spoke to the answering service and they said they can't page the dr for pain, HE IS A PAIN DR!!?? I was to go to the ER. My husband went to work yesterday and I was home alone and now he's gone camping until the Monday. So I'm home alone until then. They pain has eased some but is still awful. Has anyone ever had this problem.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
