I was put back on pain meds and muscle relaxers recently. My daughter is getting married out of state in Oct. She needed me to come down for several mother of the bride things. My 70yr old mother drove us (bless her) it was only a 3 hour drive. Going down was fine; we left on Sunday morning and arrived around 1pm. We then went out for a tour of many different places and then out for supper. I was home in bed by 7pm.
Now today when I woke my legs would hardly move, I showered anyway and made the bed! (I never make the bed)
Part way through our daily events I asked if I could be taken back to my daughters to lay down, I know that my pain, weakness and muscle spasms in my feet were because of the day before(I over did it) I had great difficultly on the ride home as well. I am now looking for a crisis plan for when I need to go back for my daughters wedding.
The way that I felt riding home, I was going to tell her I can’t make it. This is something that I never thought would be so challenging, it is not like I drove. (The pot holes in the rode are the worst)
Is the weakness in my legs because I need phycal therapy? I have been in bed for months. Has anyone tried going to a chiropractor for DDD? Since surgery is not an option what about spinal manipulation? I was told while in the acute stages not to go to the chiropractor but now that the doctors can not help, maybe it is time to revisit the chiropractor?
