I've now had back pain for 8 days although its only been this bad for the past 6. I went back to see the GP yesterday as the morphine and diazepam isn't helping. The only way I am comfortable is laying down in bed and after 6 days its driving mad. He referred me to the orthopaedic consultant at our local hospital and sent me straight in. Now it was manic. So many people who'd come a cropper because of the snow. Eventually the dr saw me and ordered an MRI scan as apparently some of my reflexes aren't there. So 5 hrs later I was seen again and they said the MRI scan showed nothing operable so I was told I could go home for pain killers and physio. Fortunately my hubbie has a 4x4 so we managed to get home safely. So now yet another day spent lying in bed on strong meds and in a lot of pain unless I lay absolutely still. Will call the GP on Monday to discuss the physio appt and fingers crossed they can help.
Just finding it incredibly lonely and isolating. For once Facebook isn't helping as all I'm reading is other people's adventures and fun in the snow. Thank goodness I have an iPad stacked up with things to watch.
