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.

I had this happen about ten years ago, but I can't remember what they did for it. So this will be like new to me. LOL Thanks for the good thoughts.
Hugs, Patt

I feel your pain, Patt, I really do.

I pinched my sciatic nerve about twenty years ago, and the pain was so excruciating I nearly passed out.

I'm glad the doctor is able to see you so quickly, and I hope he can give you some relief.

I kept thinking it would get better on it's own but that's not how it works. Thanks for the good thoughts. Did I mention how much I hate pain? LOL
Hugs, Patt

Good heavens, Patt! You take care and take it easy! I'm glad you have Shannon there with you. You two can take turns keeping an eye on each other.

Tell me about it. Guess what Rod bought me today? He ordered me a lap top. Shocked the hell out of me, let me tell ya. I think he felt sorry for me. LOL
HUgs, Patt

I'm still in shock. :) We watched the Curious Case of Benjamin Button tonight and they loved it. I had seen it already, so I knew it was great. Have you seen that?
