I've got a doctor's appointment tomorrow.

Wow, they got me in for tomorrow. I just called today. :) She put me on hold and said the doctor wants to see me right away. I've got a problem with a sciatic nerve running down my left leg and now it's all the way into my ankle. I'm in so much pain I can hardly stand it. I have no idea what I did to it, but I just want it to go away. It's been two weeks now and it just gets worse. Hopefully he'll be able to help me tomorrow. We can only hope. I'd like a weekend where I can rush around with hubster, without limping. LOL

Everyone have a great weekend.

Hugs, Patt

Update: The doctor believes that my disc has slipped and that's what's causing all of the pain. I have a bad disc, have had it for years. He wonders if when I fell in Febr. it didn't set it off and it's just now starting to come to a head. So I have to take it easy, take anti-inflamitory for two weeks and come back and see how I'm doing by then. I was so thrilled that he didn't want to send me to a surgeon or something. The last thing I want is back surgery. I've heard nothing but horror stories about them. Anyhow, this usually heals itself more or less.
