Why me? - One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?

Why me?
I'm got an inflammed nerve in my back that runs all the way down my leg, the Sciatica nerve. I'm in a lot of pain and it hurts to sit, stand, walk--everything. So apologies for being out of touch. I'm on meds and hopefully the pain will lessen over the next couple of days.

Oh sweetie... I'm so sorry to hear that. *hugs* I had problems with that nerve when I was pregnant and it was no fun. I hope the meds work for you.

I'm so sick of having problems with my nerves. If it's not the shingles, the crainial nerve that gives me fits, now this. I'm so tired of everything.

Owie... I had that when I was pregnant, so I know what you're going through! I'm so sorry and I hope you're feeling better soon!

It's a total pain in my ass. And leg. *sigh* It sucks.

Oh dear, that doesn't sound comfortable at ALL. *snogs* I hope you feel better soon.

*hugs* I have constant back spasms in my lower back, but luckily, I'm on an anti-inflamatory and a muscle relaxer (that I only take when I get up and when it acts up).

Pain is never fun, expecially when you can't do anything but wait for meds to kick it. :(

*hugs*

I've had back problems since '85 when I feel in a friends driveway and tore all the ligaments in my lower back. God, that hurt and this feels the same except that it's on one side and not both. Just one more pain to have to deal with, I guess.

*hugs*

I try to keep my magical healing hot male nurse on the DL, but since it seems like you need him really bad, for miracle massages and whatnot, I'm going to have him on the next plane to Kentucky. No need to repay me, just send him back when you are feeling all better!

*hint: he specializes in sexual healing ;)

ohhh honey I'm so sorry to hear that!

I had a somewhat similar thing happen to me last fall around Thanksgiving. I got to where I couldn't move or walk without being in pain. I was on all kinds of pain meds, etc. Someone at work suggested a Chiropractor, I had never been to one EVER! I was really skeptical, but figured it was worth a shot! Within a few visits I was back up and going again. I figured it was just a fluke, he fixed me. A few weeks later one of my sisters had the same thing happen, he helped her too. A couple of co-workers ...same thing. Very weird but it's true :-)

So, it might be worth checking out. When you're in so much pain you get to the point where you'll try just about anything to make the pain go away!

Good Luck!
*gentle hugs*

Trust me, if I could afford one (no money and no insurance) I'd be there in a heartbeat!

*hugs*

Hope you feel better. It's a lousy thing, sciatica.
araestel From: araestel Date: July 16th, 2006 01:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'll agree--it sucks and hurts like a bitch. *hugs*

oh goodness, no apology necessary! Oh, that makes me hurt just to think about the pain you are feeling! I can imagine how painful it is just to try to get around! I hope the meds are helping you and getting rid of the pain!
hugs to you!

You're so sweet! Yes, it hurts to be awake. LOL If lying in bed were even comfortable, I'd be there. But nothing feels good. These pills need to work. Now. LOL
