oh where oh where does the pain come from...oh where oh where can it be?




My sciatica has been giving me some pain. I don't know where actually is the pain. Do I have gluteus maximus pain or is it the sciatica nerve? WHATEVER, it is painful and it's in my right butt cheek and hip and down my thigh. Last month, I got a shot in my lower back - I felt it go down my leg. I felt good but burned. I like pain, if I think it will help. The injection site hurt me and bruised me pretty bad and I still am tender there. But it did not do anything for my butt. My back feels better...I guess it helped a little.

My Doctor wanted me to go to Physical Therapy but even with my insurance, I would still have to pay. I thought about going back to Curves, after all, I am still paying $35 a month. So today I decided I would go back, since I had not ever heard from them, and they happily just took my money, I would transfer to a Curves closer to my house. I am so glad I did. They informed me, the other Curves had moved and was surprised they never let me know. GRrrrrrrr.

So I worked out and boy, I could feel the burn in my butt....and the stretches were awesome. I still hurt...in fact I hurt all over. I also have been walking daily, anywhere from 1 mile to 4 miles. Going up a lot of steep hills...I'm probably going to have to see a specialist.Trying to hold out a bit longer. I'm looking into some yoga type stretching as well.

  1. I also suffer. Not from sciatica but from Curves burn out. I’ve been a member (on and off) for about 8 or 9 years. You know the drill. I’m gung ho for a while. Obsessive even. But, then I start to get oh so bored. I start not going on Monday Have an excuse for Tuesday and figure why bother for the rest of the week. Right now I in the burn out period.
    I do feel better when I go. But it is sooooo boring!

    1. It is boring at times. Need to take breaks.

  2. I hang from the bars at the playground. I have no idea if it is a good idea or not. It feels nice, though.
