The Saga continues...

OK, so the MRI showed nothing, not one thing wrong! How can that be I ask you. Well the last week or so the muscle spasms and sciatic pain have been so terrible that one of my coworkers took me to the ER. In the ER I found a Dr. that actually listened and understood my pain. He did a trigger point injection into my SI joint and my piriformis muscle (the area next to my butt crack). It really hurt but it helped relieve some pain, he also gave me muscle relaxers and pain meds. This was the first time I've been comfortable in many months.

I have been doing some knitting, I just don't have a camera right now to post pictures. I did some more striped socks from sockotta, I finished a chevron moebius for myself and now I'm working on a sweater for my hubby. I'll post pictures when I get a camera.

My Aching Back

I hope everyone out there had a Happy Holiday! I did, it was nice to spend time with friends and family and also have time off of work :o)

I went to the Dr. today and I'm finally having an MRI on my back. FINALLY! I really don't know how much more of this pain I can take. Sometimes I feel like the doctors don't believe that I'm having as much pain as I am, it's really frustrating. Hopefully I will finally get some answers. Stay tuned...
