So happy for you! Haven't signed in for awhile but have been keeping up with you all..
My situation is long but I have two grandchildren I rarely see and it is the fault lies with my own daughter whose mental illness has caused much pain. They live with their Father and grandmother......the kids are older now and it hurts them to see me as their mother will not get help. Too long too painful to go into!
I am glad for the other three I have and who I see regularly.
That is why looking at these happy pictures touches my heart. I am so glad you woke up with a happy heart.
Hi, I can't take the cyclobenzaprine any more but still use the biotene. When I was using the cyclo I kept it out on the counter and if I woke up in the middle of the night I swished again. It really helps.
Cyclo eventually dried my eyes out so bad they wanted me on RX drops...then it caused other issues. I miss it though as sleep was much better when taking it.
I cannot say enough about lidocaine shots. I have suffered with numbness in my fingers for years with no answers. Then I had some extreme pain in my mid back that took me to the Dr. she looked at the tightness in the back and neck and gave me the shots. I was so tight it was hard the first time to choose which points to work on.
She then said wait a week and see the chiro the next week come back a week after that and come back for the shots. After two sets of shots the numbness is gone. The DDD is still there and so is the osteoarthritis in the neck so I using Pilate's and Yoga to work on that.
If I need it again I will do it. Would never have believed it could help this much.
Hope you see this. No you did not scare me.....it it made me do a little thinking about the issue from a Dr. view point.
I am one of those with two codes and I do understand the coding system as my Dr. has explained some. So it did help me and you can ramble all you on anytime. I appreciate your professional background information.
