herniated disc??
Wed, 01-02-2013 - 3:58pm

not sure if i have another herniated disc?  i fell 2 times since october and it feels like my tail bone is swollen at times. when it hurts i lay low and spend a lot of time in bed. for 5 days now it feels great. i won't see a dr cause i have no patients running all over the place in winter driving. i stop driving when we have snow. trust me if it was very bad i'd do something.  i have a severe scoliosis and fibro. i take meds that help me more now than ever.  my falling is from when i make the bed and put clean sheets. there's one area i don't have much room so thats were i trip and fall and get stuck till i scream so bf and here me. lol   not sure he can make the bed since he's almost 77 years old. last time i made the bed i made very sure to be slowwww  and i did much better..

I am real sorry you are suffering. As if any of us need any more pain. I guess we need to learn to take life steady and be more aware of how we move . I sure hope you don't have any more falls. Take extra care of yourself
