I've been living with chronic pain for over 5 years. Cervical and lumbar pain. I have a good PM doc, and the right combo of RXs. About 4 weeks ago, I got a bad cold, and stopped taking the painkillers because I didn't want to mix them with the cold medicines I was taking. Well I detoxed while I had the cold.. so I haven't been taking the RXs. And I've been fine for 3 weeks. No pain in either area.
Then here it comes, creeping back.... first my neck began to hurt about a week ago.. now my back is starting to say hello again.
Makes me soooo aggrevated thinking I'm getting away with no pain and then it creeps it's way back into my life!! SO unfair!!!
But who said life was ever fair? Humph!
I just had to vent.. and I'm sure family and friends are tired of hearing it after 5 years. So I vented here.
