Ouch!

The last four days I've come to realize how much progress I've made physically because I'm back to square one on pain. My leg has been incredibly stiff w/ a lot of stinging. I've also had the weird buzzing thing in my knee. My lower back is aching a lot, mostly on the left side.

So why is this happening now? Probably a combination of all of the following:

- my trip to Chicago last Monday
- cutting back on one medicine
- exerting myself because I thought I was well enough to do so (did some extra arranging in our house because of getting new furniture, entertained, did extra cooking for church events)
- less frequent chiropractor visits

I really forgot how bad it was in the beginning. I haven't gotten quite that bad; at least I don't have electrical impulses going up and down both legs, like tiny mice running up and down, to quote a friend. That's what landed me in the ER in September '08. I was trying to eat dinner and my "good" leg went all haywire - it wasn't physically jerking but felt like it was.

I called the chiropractor yesterday to see if I could get in early but he was booked. So I'm just going to take it easy till I can see him tomorrow. I'm also going to go back on the full dose of medicine I wanted to eventually totally cut out (it interacts w/ another med I wanted to go on for another problem).

I'm also trying to decide what to do about my garage sale, which was going to be my focus this week and next.
