Back troubles

Havent posted in awhile. No pictures tonite. Still plugging along on my Omigosh! quilt. I have 33 of the 111 Shoo Fly blocks finished. Sooo hopefully it wont be too much longer.



Now to my back. I have been having problems for just over a year with my lower back. Then the bottom of my feet started bothering me. Stinging, or itching, burning. Not Diabetes, had that checked. Mussel soreness in my thighs and weakness in my legs at times. Had a MRI and found out I have a torn disc at L5, that is lower back. That is what is causing all the problems. I go Wed. to see a neurosurgeon to find out what we can do about this. In the mean time, no heavy lifting and try to be careful with it. I know you are wondering how I did this, so am I. I have had several falls over the years, no telling when it was damaged. Will keep all of you, my friends, posted.

I have had a ruptured disc in my lower back and can identify with your pain. It doesn't always come from a fall, mine seemed to be something that runs in my family. Hope you get some relief soon.
