Thnx for the words of encouragement and suggestions from my dear Sparkpeeps in dealing with my back spasm.
I have never had one!
I’m sure I whine like a big baby around the house.
It started a week or two ago with a terrible spot of itchiness around my right shoulder blade.
I was often scratching it with a ruler or a towel or whatever would reach that spot.
Then the itch went away and I have a stabbing pain in the same spot and at time a sciatica-like numbness down my right arm.
Is there a doctor in the house?
I increased my naproxen (which I had nearly weaned off as the CBD oil has helped my hip pain tremendously).
I go in my hot tub every night.
I have been doing plenty of back stretches.
Have used my little Tiger Tail self-massaging stick on it.
The pain wakes me up repeatedly in the night (took a long nap this afternoon, and I am not usually a napper).
Heat is the only thing that relieves the pain, especially lying down on heat.
My dear man has been kind and thoughtful and is taking care of himself...pain has taken my appetite away...I am down a few pounds.
Finally got through to my doc on Friday and got a prescription for a muscle relaxer and orders to see her next week if that doesn’t help.
I would say NOT, although I may be feeling a tiny bit better today.
Anyway, thnx for listening!
