Thank you Linda, Baxter & Patmg for replying. Seems The last few days, I'm lucky to be able to read posts and post myself maybe 1!

Linda thank you as always for your support. I think sometimes my babies keep me smiling even though it's hard to physically be mommy. They're so dang cute! I am so looking forward to my doc appt in a week. Started keeping Pain Diary on Sunday. Bad thing about that is ' where I normally feel a stab and just as quickly ignore it... all my focus is on the pain so I can accurately describe it....it makes me hurt more. Does that make sense?

Yesterday, I felt like there was a fuzzy in between my Left toes (my pain is primarily right sided lumbar)- reached down.... nothing there. It's still like that. Started crying when tingling went up my left shin. This nerve involement has me more freaked out than the pain!

When I laid down for the past two nights, it takes me over an hour for all the tingling to stop enough for me to be able to fall asleep. Bottom of right foot - instep tingling.. .big toe on right - a stabbing tingling. What am I going to do if I HAVE to have some kind of surgery? I guess I'll find out if/when the time comes. Just depressing.

Pat - I will ask doc about mid back next Tuesday. It actually has settled down a little. I think it was the overdoing - working w/ mom, going to pool w/ kids and bending over for a couple hours! Also - yes, I did get your post on Gulf-War Syndrome. My hubby is back on Prozac which seems to help w/ his nerves, which in turn helps the headaches! :) He's coming up on 2 weeks taking it, so - he should really notice a dif now.

Baxter, thank you for your prayers. Your support is always there and I want you to know I appreciate it. Hope all the calls yesterday that you mentioned in another post got you somewhere good. Look forward to hearing your update today! :)
