If you have been following my blog you will know that I have been experiencing alot of pain in my back and knee. I have been seeing an accupuncturist and a chiropractor. I dont mention the chiro much because I have been mainly seeing the acupuncturist. Those bills are adding up. The chiro is 20 bucks each visit which is cool but now my son is going 3 times a week. The acupuncturist is 100 bucks per week (2 visits per week).
I went to see a specialist because it does not seem like the numbness in my shin is going away. This specialist is so busy that you have to wait 2 - 3 weeks just to get an appointment. I got really lucky and got to see him within 24 hours.
I did not get far in the examination because I was in so much pain. The doctor began to bend my knee and I felt this sharp pain. .
I screamed, "ouch! stop stop stop!" I hit him everytime I said stop. Yes, that means I hit him 3 times. I was in so much pain. I had my eyes closed and tears were coming down.
He ordered xrays right away and then asked the nurse to set up an MRI appointment for me. Everything seems to be moving along fast. This is good because I have had this pain for about 6 months. I cant wait to find out what is wrong so that they can fix it. The doctors says that I have a pinched nerve but he thinks something else is going on too.
I got me some drugs finally! I got Vicadin extra strength and some muscle relaxers. They warned me not to have any alcohol while taking the medication. Uh, duh! ha ha.
I really hope the specialist can get to the root of the problem and take care of it. Honestly, this is my last hope.

That's exactly how I feel, too. Even when I look back, I always remember when I felt wronged in the past when I was little. The pain seems more real than whatever I experienced later in life like in high school or even within the last few years. And yeah, my parents are considering taking her out if the problem isn't fixed and signing her up for club volleyball--which isn't without its unique share of problems, e.g. the cost, who's going to drop her off/pick her up, scheduling, etc.--but at least she'll be happier, since volleyball is actually one of the sports she LOVES to play. It's all so very aggravating, but I hope things get resolved before I go in there and start the figurative bloodshed... lol.
P.S. Mmmmm... vicodin! I hope your injury isn't too serious. » ranor

Don't sell the vicodin... it's illegal. :p » ikimashokie

yikes! i hope you find out what's causing all the pain, unlike Lazypuppy, whose doctors keep telling her nothing is wrong with her back despite the pain. Feel better! :) » LostSoul13

I hope you get better soon. A pinched nerve can REALLY hurt, I feel your pain. :(
They warn about alcohol because not all pain killers have that warning. Um...extra strength? How many mg did they give you? » Katrina
