A break.....

Hi blogging friends!

Well, i'm in the last month of summer vacation and it's been almost 3 weeks of back pain/sciatica pain for me. It is getting worse rather than better so.....

I'm now contacting my doctor, and then contacting a chiropractor that 2 friends have recommended.

I haven't been in pain like this since having lyme disease...and that was more of a muscle and joint thing......like the flu....with joint pain.  This is actually worse because so far nothing is really working!!

Thankfully, Aleve is taking the edge off but.... I don't really want to take too much of that.....

so....I'm exploring the more natural approach of what chiropractors do.

I've got a couple of friends who have had sciatica before and herniated disks and they still struggle with it!

My husband and I are asking the Lord to fully heal my body and restore my back to what it was.......

The physical therapists think I twisted wrong or something while painting that week the pain started.

At any rate....I'll be off here for a bit.....

I will try to do the Friday Fave Fives hosted by Susanne......

for now.....I need to exercise, muddle through what housework I can get done, spend alot of time in the Word and with my girls......

........and going to appointments!!

I covet your prayers!!

Thanks and enjoy the week!!

Lifting you up before the Lord, Faith! So sorry you're going through this.

I'll be praying that you get some relief from the pain. I *heart* my chiropractor. I find that a visit every 4-6 weeks keeps me in a pain-free maintenance mode.

Oh no Faith.....that is NOT fun! The chiropractor is a good idea. I have been going to one for 2 years now and it really helped. The only bummer is they want you to go to a ton of appointments in the beginning. I hope you can find some kind of relief...praying for you my friend!!!

Hi Sandy!! Well, my doc is back from HER vacation and was NOT thrilled that a back xray wasn't ordered by the first doc who saw me. SO...she ordered one, I have to call later this morning for the results. She put me on a steroid to reduce inflammation and gave me a strong pain killer that i don't wanna rely on but took last night and this morning. she said once the steroid kicks in I hopefully won't need a pain killer. She wants me to keep going to PT but by the end of next week if I am not better then I am calling the chiro. The first one I called no longer takes my insurance. I went to one a long time ago for back pain due to excessive shoveling and she nipped it in the bud in just 4 sessions. it was GREAT! yeah..they want us to keep going cause they want to bill our insurance! thank the Lord my copay is only $10! Thank you for your prayers...How are YOU doing??
