The prognosis from the nerve block done this past week? Well it’s hard to say.
As you may recall, I saw my Neurologist and he increased my Gabapentin thinking that this was a classic neuropathic pain.
The spine doctors felt it was due to lumbar problems and gave me the nerve block.
I came up with a theory of my own. I wondered if the ill-fitting chair that I sat on all day was the problem, with no back support and having to sit up forward all day in it. The chair seat feels hard. I decided to stay off of it this week, for the most part.
I do feel somewhat better. It’s not gone, but it’s down to about a 5-6 in pain level instead of a 10 to a zillion pain level.
Could it have been the drug increase? It may have been because I started to feel a little better prior to the nerve block. If this was it, thank you Doc, but I’m walking around in a daze from being on so many meds.
If it was from the nerve block, well thank you docs.
If it was from staying away from a bad chair. Well, thank you to me.
My Take On This:
I think perhaps it was a combination of all three things. It happened just in time, because I was wanting to look for the hack saw to get rid of the darn legs.
Whatever the reason for the slight improvement, I will take it and accept it with profound gratitude. I don’t feel relief from pain but I feel improvement.
Hey every little bit counts.
