Sciatica - - - - ouch

I thought I'd just pulled something in my back when I lifted up a bag (40lb) of soil.  The first three days were excruciating (or so I thought) but now it's 10 times worse and going down my leg, but not the normal sciatic pain where it goes down the back of the leg, this is the front of the leg.  None of the over the counter medications are working and am currently sitting here sitting on a heating pad.   Sometimes I think, "what's the point."  I can't work, I'm doing nothing all day (except my cross stitch), money is getting tighter and tighter, the heat of summer is coming... I have a lot to look forward to.  Sorry guys, pity party for one today.

  1. Sorry you are in pain Mandie. It's a good thing to vent...we all days when we indulge in a little self pity. Hope you feel better soon.
