I Want Off This Hamster Wheel
Earlier a buddy of mine took me to Charleston to get my spinal cord stimulator adjusted for the first time since my surgery. I went straight from getting out of my bed ti getting in his truck. Anytime I take a trip like that It always come back exhausted. This time was certainly no exception.
Hours after my adjustment I could feel nonstop burning in both legs. I actually feel even more pain than usual in my lower back. I took all my nighttime meds early just hoping for some relief. Unfortunately a couple hours later relief is nowhere in sight.
I just flipped my stimulator settings back to what they were before today’s adjustment. Sometimes you’ve got to be quickly willing to go back to proven methods for results. No matter how hard you know there is no exact science to certain things. I’m nauseous, completely exhausted, and hoping my pain goes away soon.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
