I know it's been a long time since I posted but things have been busy :)
I am just settling in with our new bundle of joy and my body is revolting. I was actually doing ok after my muscles recovered from labor and then the rain came, now I can't seem to get a handle on the pain. I know my body is also trying to adjust to not carying a basketball in the front and I find myself walking with a hunch! My Fibro is flaring and both my lower & upper back are a mess. Does anyone have any tips for streching the lower back? I am getting a short massage next week and he is going to let me hang on his inversion table which I've never done but I am hoping it will help! The only meds I am using for pain right now are IB Profin and Tylenol 3s since I am nursing but neither do a darn thing since my body is used to heavy duty narcotics (I've been off the Opana since conception and off the Percocet for a couple of months after weining off over a couple of months).
Any advice would be appreciated. I know it would be good for me to get into the pool but she is too young, I am going too once she is old enough that I can take her. I am using heat & ice but I find they are only working while I am on them, as soon as I take it off the effects go away. Thanks for reading/responding.
