Painful


Today was a day of extreme discomfort for me. For over a year now I have been experiencing shooting pains starting from the small of my back and going all the way down the back of my left leg to my calf, and then round the shin to my foot. I have no idea what it is, but I think I can rule out back strain - I have suffered from that in the past, and this is a completely different pain. For one thing, this is constant, and no matter what I do - short of load myself up with painkillers and muscle relaxants - I just can't get rid of the pain.Sitting is an effort, walking for any distance is virtually impossible, and just forget about standing - it is just too painful. As I said, this pain has been coming and going for the past year, and hardly a day has gone by when I haven't experienced it, but today has been by far the worst so far. I think I am going to have to go to the doctor to get it seen to, because I just can't go on like this. So, today I have a picture that reflects the way I feel. In fact, it serves a double purpose. You see, some of the pictures I uploaded recently ended up being pixelated by the Pbase machinery (unintentionally, I hasten to add). By putting this picture up, I am saving the machines the bother of pixelating. Right, I'm away to take some Diclofenac and gain brief respite.
