So lets sum up some of the details. I have been getting extreme back flares and the past two months have been the worst (even though it has been on and off for years). So I finally realized when it started to paralyze at night and I was unable to get up to pee, that there was a problem.
I sucked it up and made appointments with an acupuncturist and a chiropractor. Both appointments were new and I was nervous.
Acupuncture was on Wednesday. It went smooth. The first part I was lying on my back there were needles in my belly, feet and hands. Those fifteen minutes I have to admit were long. My back was seizing up and for some reason I was restless. I think because I was new to acupuncture I had no idea what I was going in for.
It seemed to have helped. But it did leave some bruises all around my body. BY THE WAY----IT DOES NOT HURT!!! JUST DONT LOOK AT THE NEEDLES.
For the chiropractor. I drove 30 minutes to see one. He evaluated me and determined I have a Sacroiliac Joint injury. I am still waiting for a full idea of what I have to do but it is a start.
We started treatment already. It should take about 4-6 weeks minimum but could take longer.
I have to admit the pressure hurt the most and the movement also. But after it was done I felt a lot better.
However, the day after everything keeps cracking but doesn't hurt. I had a fabulous sleep for once. Though the downside my neck and shoulders hurt A LOT!!! I don't know why, but I will find out on Wednesday when I go back.
I have some more updates, but for now...Good Night!! xox
