Pain in the rear

The title of this post says it all. I have the most intolerable pain in my rear which runs down the back and side of my thigh. I feel the most pain when I am sitting up - like when driving or working at a desk on my computer. In order to write this post, I am reclining on my bed while sitting on an ice pack (how lovely). This pain has been going on for well over a week but in the last couple of days has increased dramatically. I went to the doctor yesterday and was given some anti-inflammatory stuff and some pain meds. I really thought I would see a vast improvement today. Nope. I drove Ethan and Sadie to the barn this morning (all of a mile from the house) and by the time I got home was ready to slap someone silly.

I did what every person does these days when they have any sort of pain. I consulted the internet. Seems it may or may not be sciatic nerve stuff, a bulging disc or a muscular issue resulting with nerve pain. No duh. However, what scared me the most was that some of these people were talking about 3 years with this kind of pain. What?!?!?!

So, here I lay. It is a beautiful, beautiful day to be outside working on our garden, playing with the kids, even getting out the sprinkler. Instead, I am a slave to my bed, slave to my house, slave to the whims of Jay who needs me with only 5 days to RaRa launch. Someone help me...

Kelsey, I have the same problem. Comes and goes. Was worse when I was cleaning houses, but flares up now when I do heavy lifting or just too much physical stuff at home. Hope you are feeling better real soon! Love, Amy

Hope you feel better soon!! Thanks for your prayers - they have helped more than you know! I'm sorry you are hurting!! Do you need any plastic bags/gloves for your trips to the potty??! Hope you are up and around very soon!! Oh, stay AWAY from the internet unless you want to hear horror stories!! Yikes - it always makes me think the worst!! Not good!!

I will say a prayer for you....I know the pain (well, back pain anyway), it had me flat on my back for...(I won't tell you how long)...
Hang in there. Those little pain pills can be your friends! :)
