I have now been out of work for ten weeks. After several weeks of me telling the doctor that there was something more than just muscle spasms going on they finally did an MRI. The MRI showed that I had a tear in one my discs in my back, as well as some bulging discs, and edema on my SI joint. I have been going to the chiropractor, acupuncturist, physical therapy, and the workman's comp doctor several times. Multiple appointments each week, and it isn't healed. I had to see a differnt doc this week as the workman's comp doctor was on vacation. The new doc is saying that she believes that the problem is the SI joint, and that I am compensating elsewhere and that is causing all the pain. The frustration comes from the fact that I have seen a multitude of specialists and no one has said that the SI joint could be causing all of the discomfort. She has also said that it being out so long could make it take longer to stay back in alignment, that it could pop in and out before it finally will stay in place. I am just sick of this whole thing and wanting to get back to a normal life. Wanting to bathe my kids without pain, wanting to pick them up, wanting to go back to work...
Sam today is complaining that he is sick again too. Not sure exactly what is going on. He has bad diarrhea, which could be a stomach bug like a normal kid, or it could be something worse. I guess we wait until the morning to see how he does. But please keep him in your prayers
