Feeling it tonight

Aug 13, 2016 6:11 AM

My sciatica is flaring up again tonight. Them bloody cinema seats were so low. Had my meds and it has done nothing. Not sure if i should go to A&E. Ive got Ambulance cover so thats no issue. Im on a waiting list too see a surgeon about my back problems as i also have a few bulging discs. Not sure what to do?

Hi Mark... πŸ€— take a deep breath babes. Have u moved yet? I find A&E never to be much help... but thats cos i avoid it like the plague.πŸš‘

πŸ’ŠDo u have anything else for breakthru pain that u can take? (A smoke/vape thc?) What meds have u taken? πŸ“š

Can u find a comfortable place and maybe listen to some 🎧music... or do whatever u need to to zone out & de-stress? 😚

Its ok... u will be ok, we are here for u. πŸ€—

Marks78, I am so understanding yr pain! It is so incredibly dibilitating & personally isolating. Yeah focus narrows to the red line that sciatica. Just recently befor I found this app. I had an attack on my sanity that lasted 3 months. So glad you could rest. The body sends out healing then. Hope it lessens soonπŸ™

Aug 14, 2016 4:09 AM

Lulabel, I have 2 dressage whips in the back of my truck!!! People look at me like what the hell is that for.. LOL!!! I used to ride with one all the time as my girl was blind on one side and I'd push low hanging branches away from her face with it. πŸ’•πŸ˜Š
