I plan to write here about my everday pain, pain levels, what kind sof pain and what brings on FMS attacks for me. I also have Degenertive disc Disease, but did not see a group for that...so I plan to write here.
6:30pm Pacific time. I took some extra medications so that I could do some housework today. I'm glad that most of it is done, but I know I will pay for it tomorrow.
I'm trying to lose weight so that my joints don't wear out that much sooner. I already have a new left knee (got it almost a year ago), now it looks like I might be looking at a hip replacement. But I know they won't do that unless I let them mess with my lumbar. I have a congenital problem of very short pedicles in my spine. Along with degenerative spine,and stenosis, not good.
I worked more than I should have cleaning house today. I ended up taking more of my muscle relaxer than normal. I know it I don't clean..no one else will. Plus, eventgually the epidural will completely wear off and I will be back to alying down all day while the house gets dirty.
awaken at 4:00 am with extreme muscle spasm in neck and so much pain. Tried taking muscle relaxer and pain meds. Eventually went to lay back down, but I was afraid I would sleep through Sueand Jim coming over for breakfast, so I stayed awake. I wore boots (heels) to breakfast. this was the first time in heels since my knee surgery. but it was my hips that gave me a problem. I took more pain medication around noon. I need a nap.
