Karen: what a great and helpful post. I really appreciate it. As far as the sugar is concerned, I just had a it checked and the number was excellent (75). Probably due to the fact that I've been on the Mediterranean/low carb diet for 4 months and have lost about
35 pounds. Just when I was feeling wonderful.....BOOM, I get this spine problem. What I meant about
the low blood sugar specifically: a couple of cups of coffee in the morning, I get busy and skip breakfast get very hungry.....symptoms increase.
My PT wants me to do very very light dumbbell work along with bands, McKenzie neck moves, mixed with some yoga type moves (cobra etc.) I also walk quite a bit on treadmill and my country roads.
How do you feel about
traction? My PT does not like it. Also, is the pillow something I need to pay close attention to? I bought a wavy cervical pillow and can't stand it.
All the best. Derek
BY the way: The ER doc. put me on medrol dose pack 2 months ago and it really messed up my adrenals. I know that from research I did on that horrible drug. Some folks still get side effects after months and months of taking just the one dose pack......never again.
