I've got a severe case of sciatica at the moment, and am pretty much flat on my back. It seems to be on the left side, and may be due to the problem with my left ankle, but it could be due to my bulging disc. Heck, could even be due to where I gave myself the insulin injection last night or the evening before.
I've not gone in to work today, as there was no way that I could do so, and I've been flat on my back most of the day, taking a high level dose of pain meds and an anti-inflammatory (both of which have had seemingly little effect). Depending on how long this bout of sciatica takes to die down, I'm not sure when I'm going to get back to work this week, but I can tell you my boss is not happy right now.
Needless to say, I won't be gaming with the Wednesday night group this evening.
Either way, I'm down and out for now.
Absolute pain and misery.
