So, I was laid out and unable to move last night. The slightest turn sent an excruciating pain down my butt and sometimes to my calf or foot that let me know I had moved in a direction that was not allowed! I'm better today. I still feel some discomfort and a little tweak here or there but my range of mobility is 10x better.
I know that my weight loss is responsible for my being able to function when I'm in the midst of a sciatic episode. When I would have them before I could be basically immobile for a week until it calmed down. The fact that I'm walking around this morning or that I was exercising this week when I felt the beginning tweaks is amazing to me. Part is that I'm recovering better and part is that I'm pushing through the pain. Both parts equal a whole lotta fabulouslness to me! But, I gotta tell you, I'll be happy when--I guess I should say, if--I'm every able to kick this, because sciatica is a b**** to deal with! Anybody suffer from it?
