residual symptoms

Sep 12, 2012 - 0 comments

My severe back pain has gone away.  Today I am left with right side of my face swollen and only a little bit of the left side.  I have some seldom and random rich tingling sensations in my arms and in my left hand, and then some in my forehead and lips.  
Last night while I was trying to sleep, my right leg jumped 2 or 3 times in a row as I was drifting off.  It will twitch or jump sometimes but only mildly.  Husband massaged my back last night and really got the kinks out that were causing so much pain.  I was constantly able to stretch that part of my back, all the muscles of my leg and foot like I hadn't been able to in months. My back is feeling MUCH better today.
Just took a water pill to help with the swelling in my face and may end up trying an antihistamine later.  I am 5 days out from my period too so I am beginning to retain water anyhow.

Face

Face swelled up, especially the right side.  
I don't know if this was because of the strain in my back or the Tramadol I took.  Still puffy the next day.

Back Trouble

Sep 08, 2012 - 0 comments

Woke up with what feels like an initial back strain.  It's much colder this morning and I am guessing this is the cause for my back trouble this morning.  Have taken a cyclobenzaprine and it seems to have helped calm the seizing mucles.  It's just to the outside of where I had my back strain last winter.

There's been a couple of times today where it feels like I'm being bitten by a bee or something.  I keep freaking out thinking I really am being bitten but there's nothing there when I look.  This is rather new, like only the 2nd day I've noticed such a sensation.
