  • How to deal with unbearable back pain until i can get to the Dr. on August 5th....?

    I have been having on a scale of one to 10.....pain that rates 8 all the time and 10 when the pain shoots.

    The pain I have is in my lower back, into my hips and shoots down into my legs. I can bearly sit, it hurts to lay, I'm getting little sleep and it's a little better when I stand. Nothing over the counter helps. I've taken some Vicodin that was left over from a sugery a few months ago (not related to my back) the Vicodin dulls the pain a bit. I've also use some Soma, but they don't really do much bu t make me sleep. I don't want to eat pills all the time....

    The question is, how do i make it through work for the next week or so until I can get my MRI and other testing done. Any tips for anything I can do at home? It's either a nerve issue or a disc issue and I only mention that it may be a disc thing is because Degentative Disk Disorder runs in the family. Any suggestions to keep me sane with this PAIN?

  • An owl flew into my bay window today, do you think he was in a Windex commercial?

    So, my babysitter was standing in the kitchen today and he heard what sounded like a rock hit our bay window. I come home from work and see this bird lying on the ground with huge, for lack of better description, chicken feet. Is it common for owls to be hanging out in the suberbs of Detroit?

  • Bipolar and wanting to get pregnant?

    I am type 2 bipolar. I am on 100mg of Lamictal, 10mg of Lexapro, 1mg of Xanax as needed and I'm not sure how many mg's of Remeron at bedtime. I recently went off my meds for about 2-3 weeks due to loss of job, insurance, etc. I felt like I was loosing my mind when I was off these meds, I came to work everyday but I just was not myself. I went to my shrink to get scripts adn he actually said "I think u should go to hospital" due to the mania I was expirencing....On meds, I'm just fine as can be.

    What is your opinion on me having a baby? Do you think I I'll make it through a pregancy? I am aware that I can not take my scripts. I am also aware that I may pass this onto my child, my mom passed it to me, I still want a child. I am a 29 y/o professional with a long term bf. Throw me you 2 cents, please.

  • Newish Bipolar diagnosis and mood questions?

    I was diagnosed as being bipolar aprox 6 months ago. The doc put me on 100mg Lamictal, 10mg Loxapro 10mg Remeron (at night) and 1mg Xanax as needed. This combo has been working for the most part except for deminishing the really LOW lows. The doc will not up the Lexapro. I feel I need more help with the depression. Any suggestions as far as a different antidepressent goes? Also, I'm like an emotionless drone, is this because my "mania" is under control? I just feel dull and emotionless and not myself? What do you think?
