Over the past six months, I have found that ‘many of the symptoms’ of my 3 slipped discs have been receding! My lower back ‘feels so much better’ and for ‘4 days of the week’ I now feel ‘much more like, my usual self’ (Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday). BUT I have found that my recovery now follows ‘a weekly pattern’; because on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, my mind is ‘fully occupied’ trying to ignore ‘as best as I can’:
The Pinched Nerve that I have in my neck, that ‘tortures me’, whilst testing my patience ‘to the absolute limit’, and stopping me ‘doing my usual activities’.
I can still remember ‘the first time’ that this happened: My Dad had ‘driven me’ into a town called Braintree; where I was going to the bank, to have some PPI paperwork scanned. I felt good ‘on the car trip there’; I felt good ‘whilst in Braintree at the bank’; I felt good ‘on the car trip back home’. I felt good ‘for the afternoon’. BUT come the evening, just as I was sitting down ‘eating my dinner’ (and getting ready to go dancing) I started feeling ‘all odd’ (almost otherworldly) as I had ‘an odd sensation’ coming from my neck:
The Pinched Nerve in my neck ‘had said hello’ – for it felt like I had ‘two wires in my neck arcing’. It was horrible, and it ‘stopped me in my tracks’; as I found that I couldn’t concentrate ‘on anything but’ that pinched nerve! I soon realised that going dancing (that evening) ‘was out of the question’ and I headed to bed ‘very early’.
Unfortunately, this pinched nerve ‘has reared its arcs’ many times since then; and each time, it has felt as though ‘two main power lines are arcing’ stronger and stronger! It’s horrible, although I’ve found that ‘the arcing’ is only 50% of the symptom, as the other 50% is a ‘horribly worrying thought’: how is my head connected to my body?
If it hadn’t been for all the other ‘really nasty slipped disc symptoms‘ that have been ‘thrown at me’ since day one, then I’d have been ‘unable to cope with this symptom’. I have found that the pinched nerve in my neck has the following ‘cycle of behaviour’:
Always ‘on a Monday’, reducing ‘through a Tuesday’ and ‘going on a Wednesday’.
On Sunday (15/09/2019) replaced toilet’s siphon. On Monday ‘pinched nerve in my neck’ torture again!
Although if I have ‘done something’ too much (such as when I helped my Dad ‘change the toilet siphon’) then the pinched nerve in my neck, can take until Thursday/Friday ‘to clear’. It’s a slipped disc symptom, that really does ‘get you down’; because it frustrates you! It’s like your living ‘a hermit’s life’. For you feel as though you’d like to resume ‘your life before injury’ but just as you start thinking ‘maybe soon’ (even reminiscing about ‘when you used to go’ running and swimming) then those pinched nerves arc again:
NOT QUITE YET – because I have ‘some more torture’ for you! Its Monday again 🙂
