to my dr.? He said I probably shouldn't go to work this week because of my back. See the probably part was the problem. I figured I was feeling a bit better today and could try it. Worked for awhile. As the day went on with no pain killers it was a bit worse. By the time I had difficult child at his psychiatrist appointment. omg-it hurt. When I got home and out of the van I actually screamed and cried from the pain! I started having muscle spasms in my back that were excruciating! I think I scared easy child who came around from the other side of the van to take my purse and keys without even being asked. Tomorrow morning I have a pt appointment. and then am going to try to not do much the rest of the day. I should have listened to those of you who told me to stay home and to my dr. Sometimes I just think I can handle more than I actually can! Question for those of you who have had bad back pain. We're suppose to go to Michigan this weekend-a 5 1/2 hour drive. Is this something that is doable?
