Went back to chiro - with the goal of getting some good heat and ice therapy and a bit of traction. I really like this chiro as he does NOT ever use force. I was in so much pain - he didn't even 'adjust' me. Just traction gently - continually feeling for the muscles spasms and that wonderful ice and heat treatments. My X-rays came back from radiologist and no bulging just pinched at L5 and Sacrum. Disks are thin there though. Not sure what that means.
Saturday was better - not ideal - but better. My wonderful husband made all the food that was my responsibility for Midget's grad party.
Sunday - WOW I showered.. and shaved my legs!!! Even put my clothes on myself! But I was CROOKED lol! My hips were visibly more left then my shoulders!
So here I am Thursday.... better but not better... I know that makes no sense. I'm a little straighter, I can walk and not drag my leg, but still lots of muscle spasms, still lots of pain after sitting for periods, or standing for periods. I'm better than I was last week - but not enough to get back to my regularly scheduled life.
Today is my deadline to decide if we are going to make the 6 hour drive to Michigan. My family is hosting another grad party for Midget so she can celebrate with her family. I'm still undecided... trip is next weekend and Jim is not going with me. Just the kids so I will be driving all of it myself.
