      could you order a TENS Machine ?usually works very quickly on pain and I forgot midwives use it on women giving birth, it works for 20 minutes at a time ,switches off automatically and you switch it back on again I presume it's for safety so you don't electrocute yourself, when my pain perception was more normal the pain stopped!!!!!!!!!!
      don't put it directly on your spine

        You can buy them without a prescription at the drugstore and it sounds like a good idea!

        Thanks you two. I'm alternating heat/ice, but the pain is so bad I can't really walk or stand, I spent most of yesterday in a wheelchair and now in bed. Not good, I'm needed at work, but from experience I'll be out for at least a few weeks. Not deadline-friendly.

        Oh that sounds bad. Hope you go to an orthopedist or neurologist to see if something can be done. Wonder if a back brace would help the pain.

      I noticed today that people often laugh when I'm awkward, as long as I'm smiling while I do it. Apparently it's cute. Not where I was aiming

        Sometimes you really want to have a gooey pie in your hand under those circumstances, to throw. Is that where the saying 'shut your pie hole' comes from? I wonder.

      Lots of flu going around. Doctors say it's the most virulent flu they've ever seen. But you know what else is contagious? Smiles :)

        I have it, it's type A N3N2 have never been this sick in my entire life. It's caused the whites of my eyes to turn mainly red with infective conjunctivitis. Husband has the same, but instead it became pneumonia, he's still in hospital. Three weeks of this hoping that it's soon over.
