Lets return to the 'if its not one thing, its another' category. My back is being very bad lately. When I say bad it is causing me pain of the kind that makes it difficult to remain vertical for any length of time. That makes it hard for me to do things like walking around, cooking meals, cleaning, emptying the dishwasher, going to the grocery store, going to work, and feeding the cat among others. Nothing much. It also tends to hurt when I am sitting or lying down.
What can I do that does not cause me pain. I'm thinking. I'll get back to you when I come up with something.
I think what has happened is that the last treatment to my back has worn off. I have had these fun treatments where they basically stick heated needles in my back between the bones and kill off the irritated nerves which are causing pain. They are irritated because they are being squished as a result of my degenerating disks.
The treatments work for at least a year or so and can be repeated. Even though the nerves are killed off they do grow back but usually less so they cause less pain.
The problem is I am not scheduled to see my doctor until the end of May. I can try to get an appointment sooner but his schedule is usually very tight. Then I will have to wait to get the treatment scheduled which can take another 4-6 weeks.
I'm still thinking of something I can do without pain.
