Pain level: 6/7 as long as I walk like an idiot
Dislocations so far today: right index finger again! jeez!
Subluxations so far today: Right shoulder a couple of times
Meds: meloxicam--1 tablet.
Major complaint: Lumbar spine pain with some nerve pain down my left leg, some stiffness/pain/swelling in the joints of my hand (R>L)
And the snow is just starting to come down now. The flakes are wet and sloppy, splattering against the deck. Yuck. It's not supposed to really stop until Sunday.
EDIT: We're getting rain currently. Wish that made a big difference. But hey! No shoveling!
It took me a long time to wake up this morning. I was awake off and on since 6am or so, just trying to sleep off a little bit more of the pain, hoping to wake up again in better shape. That didn't really happen today. Took me a while until I could uncurl myself enough to stand up. I'm walking very slowly today, and each step is probably only 3-4 inches. I'm "sneaking" today--that's what M calls it when my back is so bad I can't walk faster than that. Like I'm some sneaky burglar hoping no one notices me. XD
Having a little nerve pain involvement with my back pain today--mostly when I cough or sneeze I"ll get it down my left leg.
Two episodes of Raynaud's already today. I'm trying to keep my hands warm.
