Back Pain

Sep 11, 2012 - 0 comments






O.M.G. The pain.

My lower left back is causing me such excruciating pain I can barely see straight.  I've taken a gabapentin and a muscle relaxer to take the edge off.  I can feel the pain from my back radiate down my leg.  =' (

I took a cyclobenzaprine 10 mg and 100mg gabapentin upstairs and laid down for a few minutes until my back was relaxed enough to make it downstairs.  Once downstairs (in agony), I took a pain pill.  I feel that my pain level has gone to a very manageable level.  TG.

Ever since yesterday I can feel a vibration/twitching in my labia area (left side) and now, within the past 20 minutes I've noticed that might right eye is puffing up without pain.  WTH is going on with me?

I've been trying to do the most I can around the house while the pain killer is still working.  While doing the dishes and cleaning off the counter I noticed a burning sort of tingling on the outer side of my left arm.  
I went into the bathroom to see if I could see the puffiness around my right eye & while you really have to look to see it, there is a big rash around the frame of my face, especially the right side.  :/  I am really beginning to get worried.  

Husband gave me a back rub to try and get rid of the knot in my back.  The first pressure he put on it, I had vertigo that came on strong and then left as quick as it came.

Last night I made a big ol' journal entry only to have it disappear when I tried to post.  One thing I remember talking about was an incident that happened yesterday.  I was making out a list of symptoms and concerns for my doctor (as not to forget anything) and I had to ask my husband how to spell "unprovoked".  Mind you, I won 2 spelling bees as a child.  I had to ask my husband THREE times to repeat himself because all I heard was noise.  I could not make out what he was saying.  I spelled out "u-n-p-r-o...." and couldn't figure the rest.  I was waiting for my husband to say "t" somewhere in there.  Then it's like I came to or "woke up" in a way and just stared at the paper in disbelief.  I asked my husband, "How did I NOT know how to spell that just now?".  He just gave a bewildered look.  Frightening **** happening.
