residual symptoms

Sep 12, 2012 - 0 comments

My severe back pain has gone away.  Today I am left with right side of my face swollen and only a little bit of the left side.  I have some seldom and random rich tingling sensations in my arms and in my left hand, and then some in my forehead and lips.  
Last night while I was trying to sleep, my right leg jumped 2 or 3 times in a row as I was drifting off.  It will twitch or jump sometimes but only mildly.  Husband massaged my back last night and really got the kinks out that were causing so much pain.  I was constantly able to stretch that part of my back, all the muscles of my leg and foot like I hadn't been able to in months. My back is feeling MUCH better today.
Just took a water pill to help with the swelling in my face and may end up trying an antihistamine later.  I am 5 days out from my period too so I am beginning to retain water anyhow.
