Just Shaking My Head
I’m used to waking up in the morning before taking my meds with my tailbone throbbing. Why? Because there is a major nerve ending there in connection with my main issue my L5 S1 disc. Typically that pain goes away once my meds settle into my system. However, I’m afraid that feeling in an even more intense fashion is here to stay. There is a nerve that runs through the coccyx called the sacrococcygeal nerve. That nerve evidently was being kept in check by the last pain shot I received nearly a year ago.
I can’t take even a step without it throbbing. The pain in that area had just started returning maybe a week ago. Now it’s not going away at all. That’s with with me resting all day. If I take even a deep breath it hurts. Honestly, it hurts worse than my surgical area as my stimulator is covering that well right now.
I had no idea that shot was masking that much nerve surge. I thought any relief I felt was from the stimulator or meds. Unfortunately, it seems that neither can fight off this nerve issue. I have no idea what I will do about it in the immediate future. Yet, it seems a pain injection might be my only option at comfort. My pain for sure is like playing the pop up game. As soon as you take a swing at one issue another raises it’s ugly head.
“So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
