What a Sunday

I have written before about having pains in my right leg even while I was on the cruise. It started about Oct. 15th and as of today I still have the problem. Didn't get much sleep last night because it was throbbing and I couldn't find a comfortable position.

So this morning Linda and I headed for Durham and VA hospital to be seen by their ER doctor. He is relatively sure that it is a pinched nerve coming from my lower back and spine and had X rays done and is preparing to do an MRI soon.

The doctor gave me a prescription of capsules that is supposed to act on nerve problems so hopefully it will get better by tomorrow. Time will tell.

Hope all of you are doing great and feeling fine.


  1. Oh no Odie....I have pinched nerves in my lower back and severe nerve pain in my right thigh and also no feeling in the right foot from the arch to the toes. Right now I'm in limbo because I have no insurance so pills help but they don't take care of it. I sure hope you feel better and can take care of it with physical therapy. Let us know how you're doing.

  2. Oh dear! Sorry to hear that you're in pain! I've never had a pinched nerve yet, but I can imagine how difficult it must be to deal with them. Hope you are able to get all the help you need soon! Sending out healing thoughts to you!

  3. Sorry to hear you're hurting. I hope the medicine helps!
    Take care.

  4. Odie - you can feel free to write my hubby on facebook ANYTIME with any medication questions or just general questions for a doctor. He is a pharmacist. He is quite brilliant. So, if they give you something and its not helping - or you don't know what you can and can't mix with it - Write him.

    Also, I am sorry you are going through this.

    I am going through hard times too. Miscarriage. Hormone stuff. achy legs and hands. Skin problems. Migraine/headaches for at least 10 days now with fever. Lack of sleep. CRAZY!

    Pray for me as I pray for you. I see the doc on Tuesday.

    Sorry I haven't written in so long. Its hard for me to sign on and read the computer. I was able to watch a movie online tonight.

    I do remember you complaining about your leg during the cruise. I was a lurker reading without commenting.

    Be well my friend


  5. I'm so sorry you are experiencing pain. I hope the meds help. Take care.

  6. I'm so sorry Odie! I hope the meds work for you and I'll be keeping you in my prayers!

  7. I'm praying for you Odie. Hope you are feeling better soon.
