Ok, I'm not totally pain free, but I can *move*.
I can sit!
I can walk!
I finally caved and called my dr on Thursday, he prescribed an NSAID and a muscle relaxant and called them in for me. I was skeptical about the relaxant as I tend to have a high tolerance for those meds but when I took the first one, I got so sleepy and I dozed for the evening. Then, I went to bed and slept like a rock - highly, highly unusual for me.
I would have slept in, but I had an appointment to interview a dr for an article so I hauled myself out of bed, tender back and all. I didn't dare take one of the relaxants but the pain wasn't as severe as the day before. Anyway, I took one when I got home and dozed the day away. Another one before bed and I slept *all* night. I never sleep all night. Only had to get up once at 7 to let the dog out.
Pharmaceuticals are my friend. :heartbeat
I only have to go back to work on Monday night so hopefully this will all be a distant memory by then.
