Patti, I'm so glad the shower & music helped! I love to listen to music too, somehow it takes me away. Sometimes to pats travels, places or old friends, other times just fantisizing about things I love to do.
Rhonda-me, Geeze, I'm so sorry you are in such a bad way, I think it will end soon and that little A-hole who has been hitting your brain like a #12 for days will turn into an #7 which will be a welcome friend again after the agony! Please know I'm thinking about you.
Susie, my good friend, I feel like we're old friends already! I hope those spasms left just as fast as they started! I sure know what you mean by "not wanting to know. I put off having the MRI's for longert than I thought. I was looking back through some old paperwork from 03,04 & 05 and all the shots I had back then in my lumbar & cervical spine, geeze, I had so many! I'm really glad I saved them all now, as they may help w/ the SS Dissability I hope! I'm going to look up my old family doc who first started sending me to ortho's back in the late 80's and see if I can get a copy of those records and the pain I was having back then. Sorry, somehow it always comes back to me. I said I wasn't going to post for a while because of that but when I read my friends are hurting, I have to write. Can't help it!
