It's me Monica, sometimes I'm over here but mostly over at the Fibro page. Well, I posted over there but now I am posting here,
I came home on Thursday after the bad snow storm we had, my boys shoveled my rather steep driveway,l but we ran out of salt, so
it was very icy, when I came home from work, I took about
two steps, and started to slide, I knew I was going to fall so I figured falling on the snow would be better than falling on the icy driveway. What I didn't realize is the snow was now very hard. So I fell into the snow and on to the ground. Somehow, before I fell I sort of smacked my body against the snow mound, that hit did something because my back and hip instantly started hurting. Crying the whole way I managed to get myself up and get into the house. I could barley walk, the pain in incredible. So I went to lay down, but in about
a half an hour I decided that I better get up to prevent stiffness. It brought even more pain, but I felt I had to keep moving.
I somehow made it to work on Friday, but I guess sitting in that chair all day has made it worse. Last night was bad, today was worse, I've been in bed all day, I do get up every so often. I always had my leg sort of fall asleep or get numb but now it's worse and it felt like now both legs were going numb on me last night. The pain is in the lowest part of my back around to my right back side (my sciatica had started acting up right before this). I don't feel like I broke anything but the pain is not getting any better. I have my duragesic 75 patch, and my Oxy IR 15 that I take every 4-6 hours. I've been trying to take some advil in between, but its doing nothing for the pain. I guess I need to make a doctors appt for monday. Honestly, I don't feel like I took that hard of a hit, but I guess the pain says other. I feel like climbing the walls with the constant pain. I can only sleep on my back, and even then with the slightest move a jolt of pain gets me. I always knew back pain is so painful, but this....I just don't know how some of you that have back pain constantly deal with it. Feels like I'm about
to go crazy.
