Hopefully On the Right Track

After going steadily downhill with the leg pain, I made a trip to another doctor Tuesday. He thought I had a pulled hamstring and prescribed pain pills and pain patches and waiting for it to heal. Two days later I was unable to walk. A third doctor FINALLY gave me what I felt to be a good examination, range of motion tests, reflex tests, x-rays. It's not tendonitis. It's not a pulled hamstring. It's sciatica. *sigh* The good news is that after two days on pain meds, muscle relaxers and Prednisone, I'm MUCH improved. I have to keep an eye on my glucose (because othe Prednisone), but I can't believe how much I've already improved. FINALLY. I even feel well enough to knit a bit tonight. *happy sigh*
