Ow, My Freaking Back

It all started with the exam at the spine clinic. They pushed on parts of my back that not just hurt but that are also some of my severe fibromyalgia tender points. Then, of course, I had to bend over, walk on toes and heels, bed side to side... etc.

It seemed okay at the time. It ached a little but that was it. That was Thursday.

Friday at work I had to spend some time looking for something which involved going up and down stairs and trying not to bend over. By Friday night it hurt more.

Saturday... that's when the real pain kicked in and it's only gotten worse. My lower back, along the entire waistline and down from there through my butt and now moving up in a line into my left shoulder blade, hurts horribly! Not just hurts but burns as well. It hurts to sit, to lay down, to stand, to walk, to freaking move. There are moments when the pain is reaching a 9 out of 10 and I'm ready to cry. It just really hurts and it seems to be getting worse.

I can't blame the spine clinic. I mean, they needed to do an exam but this just sucks!

Also, thanks to this my step challenge is going on hold. I'm still posting it in our Facebook group for others to follow but my steps are on hold for now.

So, I guess that's all I have going on here along with the scale barely moving at all. My mom mentioned (and I googled) than the new med I'm on is known to increase weight but I'm on a very low dose and I don't have to take it every day, only "as needed" so I'm giving it a break until weigh-in day and seeing what happens. Trust me, if I need it during this "break" I WILL take it.

And people around me are saying that dreaded word... plateau. Isn't it too soon for one of those? I haven't even hit a 25 pound loss yet!

I guess, all in all, I can say that I'm not having the greatest week. Hopefully it will get better as it goes.
