As the world turns

Wednesday, February 26, 2020

good afternoon- I went for my consultation at the physical therapy clinic yesterday. I was feeling great. she put me through all sorts of moves - did some exercises. She even gave me homework in exercises. But last night, I developed a huge sciatica episode. It lasted for 3 hours - so I just got up. Trying to tame the pain. The only thing that worked was a bath at 2 am in the morning. My BP was terrible this morning with lack of sleep and pain. I feel fine now - I will see tonight. One step forward and one step back. I start the PT sessions Monday. emoticon

    So sorry that episode happened last night. Make sure you tell the physical therapy department know what happened, maybe they need to slow the therapy down until you can handle it, or change some of the exercises. Good lucky next week.

    Glad you are feeling better. Be sure and tell your therapist about the sciatica flare up after therapy. She may want to change it up some since it aggravated your sciatica. My therapist changed mine up after my flare up of back pain. Hope you are able to sleep tonight.
