Happy New Year and a Blogging Break!
Hello friends hope everyone is enjoying this glorious New Year so far!
You know when your health is not good and you are in much pain that it's time
to take charge and take care of yourself.
That's just what I'm going to do.
Last August I posted about my health issues taking one day at a time,
Since my last post I have had numerous treatments on my back regarding
my sciatica or though they thought that's where all the pain was coming from.
My Physiotherapist gave me acupuncture as well as laser treatments and other means of helping me tolerate the pain,
To no avail I got worse. When your Physiotherapist and Chiropractor tell you that
they can no long help you and you've dropped $1500.00 it's time for an MRI.
I've asked my doctor back in June for an MRI and she insisted that it was only sciatic related.
Finally in November she took heed and ordered me an MRI. I had to wait till January 2, 2016.
Well my results came in....
My Doctor being away the acting physician called me with the results and you could have
blown me over.
I had no idea......after all this time it was not my sciatic...
I have Lumbar Spinal Stenosis . Narrowing of the canal around my spinal cord....
The nerve pain runs down my leg from my butt into my ankle then into my foot.
It's a very excruciating pain. Can't sit for any time or stand or walk without pain.
It's progressively worsened and I hope I have not damaged the nerves in any way.
So now I wait to see a Orthopedic Spine Specialist. They tried me on nerve pills back in
November and I had a bad reaction to them. So I'm only taking xtra strength Tylenol every 4 hours.
I had so many projects planned for the new year and wanted to share our Newly renovated Main Bathroom but all this has come to a halt.
I'll be dropping in on my good days to visit you all.
Thank you all for visiting me and leaving your beautiful comments. I have made so
many friends blogging and Love you all!!
