Mary64, i just read your post about the spine infection iam so sorry,these are supposed to be the best drs around,this is some scary stuff.it is amazing to me how your boss said you should have called him right away,they inject our spines send us on our merry way and were supposed to moniter it.i know i cant iam just coming out of what i call my facet injection coma.theres just know way i could have called any dr. after that,i would have ended up in jail.the good thing mare is you are dealing with some of the best drs around scary but true.please keep me posted when you are able.i aso have a great love for animals iam pretty sure my neighbors want to kill me by now,and i dont blame them,we have 5 crazy dogs 1 had biten several times and i know if i were normal he wouldnt be here,but i always make excuses for him like he has arthritus or something.everybody in the family wants me to get rid of all but one of our dogs,and their probably right but i just cant i LOVE them,i know you understand this,theres not many people who do,and as you said it is what it is.i told them when i get rid of any of the dogs thats when i will be done.i think they have actually helped me because i have no choice but to get up every morning at 5am.thats when the first one gets up and they keep me moving other wise i probably would not have gooten out of bed.thats the only place i get pain relief is laying on my side in bed,so i actually cant wait for bed time which is super early,and i also need a nap,iam like a toddler LOL.you asked what meds i take here goes Lyrica,hydrocodone,xanx and lexapro,i fought taken the lyrica because i read so many side effects but now i actually look forward to it,it helps me sleep through the night,and it was helping nerve pain in mid back but since those facet shots that has reoccurred,i still dont know if i will let this guy burn off my nerves,iam starting to think hes a sadist,i hope thats the right word.mary i hope every thing goes well at the drs,i will be thinking and praying for you,although i do not attend church i very much beleave in God,i just dont beleave he spends all day in church,sorry so long winded but i feel like you really understand,please be careful with your spine i will be looking for your next post but totally understand if you just need rest.feel better marywoo
