I hate to whine but my back is killing me! Yesterday afternoon I was walking up the stairs and threw out my back. The pain has been incredible. The sitting position is the wost (was almost in tears at points) but the only position that doesn't hurt a lot is flat on my back. I even went to the immediate care today. They did a back x-ray to make sure there was no breakage. While they didn't find any she did notice I have scoliosis-news to me. She prescribed to medications, one of which is Vicadon and the other an alternative to Ibuprofen-said she likes it better than ibuprofen because you take it only twice a day. I'm also suppose to follow up with my regular doctor (last time it felt like this in '98 I had a slightly herniated disc. She also wants me to start going to physical therapy-like I have time with all the other appts for easy child and difficult child. The medications are helping a bit. I'm hoping to go to work tomorrow but then I can't take the Vicaden (sp?). Hopefully the pain will be less tomorrow. The doctor thought maybe I hsould take off two days but I really don't want to waste the few sick days I have. Also, I'm afraid I could start to get very grouchy without my workouts which I won't be able to do for a couple of days at best! Thanks for listening to my whine!
