Oh My Aching Back

If you can die from a back ache, I am surely going to die. I have a ruptured disk that when pissed really creates a lot of pain. Well, I guess I pissed it off good and proper. Over the 4th of July weekend, I was working in my front planter and that's when my back went out. I have been in horrible pain ever since. There's no amount of pain killers that will deaden the pain. I have to just lay around and hope it gets better soon. The muscle relaxers work on making me stupid but I don't know how much they help my back. This is a condition I have to live with since there is no real fix for it but it's hard.

Today is my first day back at work in a week - I am hoping I will make it all day but pretty much think I will pass out from pain before 4:30 comes. It hurts to sit in one position for long and I can't find a good position at all in this stupid chair of mine.

You poor girl! Back pain is one of the most debilitating things one could possibly deal with, in my opinion. Would bringing a heating pad to work with you to use while sitting in your chair help any? I'm so sorry!!!

I am so sorry to hear about your back! That can really be an awful thing to bounce back from. Hang in there!

I hope you are feeling okay. It is strange to not hear from you here. Dr. Amit Guman - acupuncture.
