I had a fibro flare up on Monday!! It is Tuesday and I am still feeling the results of that. My back is still giving me trouble- I have bulging discs in my lumbar spine and in L5- S1 I have a large herniated disc with a displaced nerve root. So I have alot of back pain at the moment even with some treatement. I also have oseoarthrisis. My legs have been so sore from the arthrisis, which I have in the knees as well as in other parts of my body.
My issues are that I am so sick of being in pain. I talk about pain alot, so I must drive my family nuts. I take percodan for pain as needed and Oyxcontin twice a day. I have had steroid injections in my lumbar spine and now they are injecting pain medication tomorrow in my spine as a test to see if I get pain relief. If I do, then they will do a nerve ablation. I had my first test done and got 4 hours of pain relief. But again I am getting tired of the constant pain that wakes me up at night. The pain that causes me to not have a full life and will limit me on vacation as the rest of our party will be seeing the sights and I am limited because my walking is limited due to pain. It seems that everything revolves around my pain. I can't shake it and it has become my constant unwanted pal. I know others felt this way. I know I am not alone. I am just feeling frustrated as can be tonight.
