so last week my back was more painful than usual and by Thursday I could hardly walk. It seems I have ruptured a disc and done some nerve damage after a fall a week or so ago. Gee I would like a break from doing dumb things and just be able to get on with it. Going to be fun laying on my left side for a trans esophageal echo cardiogram. Geez Louise I am cursed!
good news is I am down to 1mg pred and hope to be off it in 10 days! woo hoo
