Major pain in the ass

I have a major pain in my ass. No. Really! I have a pain in my ass!

My tailbone began the day on fire. Thank you arthritis and weather going from 80s to 30s back to 80s all within a single week!!!! I went to physical therapy and it only got worse. By mid-afternoon the pain was radiating down into my buttock and into my leg. My butt is hurting really, really bad.

I've taken lots of Lortab and it hasn't helped at all. FUCK!!!!!!

Eek! I'm so sorry. Sounds like a pinched sciatic. That happens to me and I end up disabled for days. I HATE it when my sciatic is pinched. It's miserable!

Anything I can do about it? Other than lay here on my back with a heating pad under my ass? *laugh*

Sometimes doing some stretching after heating it up can help. On top of the drugs. I still haven't found a surefire way to overcome it.

This is gonna be a crappy week for that. Ugh.

Lots of restful thoughts and less-painful positions to do things from your way. (I have been embroidering lying half-reclined on the bed with my right knee up. It looks crazy but it's keeping my sinuses draining and my knee brace in the drawer.)

I'm sorry. I wish I could make the pain go away. Hopefully you're feeling better today.

OH! That is totally unpleasant, I hope that you rebound quickly.
My physical therapist gave me a few great stretches for it - the best one, is to lay on your back and bring the leg that is hurting up to your chest, so that your calf is horizontal across your chest and hold it for a few minutes.
Good luck to you!
