I have had sciatica --pain down the leg--for probably a month---
Out of desperation, a couple weeks ago, I went to a highly recommended Massage Therapist---It was a hour treatment --I felt worse when I came out---but I continued the
exercises she recommended, plus the exercises Spark People show us for lower back stretches---
--not much change ----
Yesterday, I had my second massage treatment----plus this morning , again I did stretches for my back---plus a heating pad ---
Lord love a Duck-----all this takes time out of the day---
--BUT ----This morning I FINALLY feel some relief-----
I know it is early in the day---and I realize the pain will get worse as the day progresses----
BUT__--it's the first morning in maybe 6 weeks, I feel more like myself--
Himself tells me NOT to shovel anymore snow-- (I love shovelling snow and seeing the nice clear walkways)--I SHALL NOT BE DOING THAT ANYMORE!
Himself also said to not vacuum-----as if eh?---- How can that happen when I live with 3 furry animals?
On the home front here, we have sunshine---cold temperatures----but more daylight---
Hopefully my weight will go down as I don't feel I need the medications I was taking for that sciatica pain---
Stretching is a Godsend---plus Stephanie, the massage Lady!
This made me smile!
