My last post was pretty dark. I have been so sick and tired of hurting! I went to the doctor last week and he gave me new meds (Lyrica) for my sciatic pain in my leg. So far I have been pretty impressed that I has been working. Right now my leg is hurting because I shopped all morning, and in turn I am paying for it now. I also didn't bring my purse... Which had the ibuprofen in it. Dang.
I also had an MRI last week and it was confirmed that I have a herniated disc in my lower back. The doc said he could see the nerve root being pinched, and that was what was giving me the sciatica. So I got a referral to the pain clinic, and on dec 4th I go in for an epidural. I have high hopes that this will help. I have been reading up on it and an epidural combined with physical therapy and not doing anything overly hard, that should help me heal.
If you prayed, thank you so much. I would have loved for the doctor to just fix me somehow... But this solution works well for now.

I have been dealing with a problem with my back for a while. I have a herniated disc that has been tolerable for the last few months. And by tolerable I mean I can work, sort of. I had been getting a lot better, and then all of the sudden a couple weeks ago it got really bad again. Yeah my back hurts... But it is also affecting the sciatic nerve in my leg. Initially it my leg was numb but that got better. Now all of the sudden my leg hurts. Like a Charlie horse x10. It's so bad that only sleep 4-5 hours at a time. And I love sleep. And I work overnight. So as you can imagine I am a mess. Pleas pray for me... That God can heal me, or at least give me sleep. Sitting, standing, laying down all hurt. Please pray!!!
