Update

Turns out I just have pulled muscles in my lower back. Had a cortisone shot in my hip, instructed to continue with the muscle relaxers at bedtime and Motrin through the day. The shot hurt like hell. Came home, still hurting, and discovered that our a/c has died again.

Lovely.

  1. Well, good on the pulled muscle but everything else just sucks. Especially the AC. Darn, darlin'. That's really horrible.

    1. At least it's cooling down to 68 degrees tonight. With the windows open it's not too bad. High 82 tomorrow so it could be much worse. And I already have a service request in with our home warranty company.

      But damn. I've had about enough. šŸ˜°

    1. It could be so much worse. It's already nice and cool and breezy outside and the air coming in the windows feels great! I'll survive. Hopefully. :)

  4. Poor you. I hope the pills do the job. These things always take time; but heal they will. Hot here!

    1. Nothing is worse than back spasms! It's so debilitating. Hopefully that cortisone shot will do the trick.

  5. Back pain is a bitch, keep moving if you can. House repairs are also a bitch so it's good there's at least a breeze

  6. Oh Christ! Not the air con as well! At least the summer temperatures are now reduced. I hope that you have got the right kind of bed as a lot of back problems are caused by inappropriate beds.

  7. Bad that you have that terrible pain but good that it is a muscle and not a disc that might have needed surgery.

    I hope your A/C company gets to you pronto. Cooler days are coming soon.

  8. What kind of muscle relaxers? When my PCP retired they assigned me a new doctor & she prescribed generic Valium - not a very bright decision. My specialist prescribes a super-duper Aleve for me since your main goal is to alleviate the stress of the inflammation.

  9. Can't win for losing, as they say. Sorry the cortisone was painful; I hope it kicks in soon. And so glad you have cool evening air blowing in. Perhaps tomorrow will not be so hot!
