I’m back and my back

Yeah I’m bad at keeping up a blog.  I’m going to try this again.

Lately, I’ve been having trouble with my back.  At first it scared the crap out of me but now it’s just pissing me off.  The doctor says that I probably have a nerve thingamajig caused by a pinched nerve or something similar.  It’s hard to tell without an MRI which hasn’t been deemed necessary.  It started as a tingling in my right foot which quickly became a burning.  This is when I went to an urgent care center and was told it was not life threatening.  Then my back and neck started to hurt.  Which is about when I made a trip to the local ER when this brought on an anxiety attack.   After tests at the ER and a trip to my doctor, I was put on Ibuprofen and Valium.  It got painful to sit for too long and pretty soon it was excruciating.  I got put on a steroid anti-inflammatory and they upped my valium dosage.  I became a zombie.

I’m getting better.  I’m still not there but my feet don’t hurt anymore most of the time and my back and neck only hurt when they’ve been stressed for too long.  We’ll see what happens from here on out.
