So last Tuesday I was sitting at my desk when I had a sharp pain in my lower back. After 30 minutes the pain had not had actually gotten worse. So I told my co-worker I thought I needed to go to the doctor. So I called my doctor. Unfortunately, they were closed for lunch so I decided to go the Centra Care walk-in clinic. After waiting for 2 hours I saw the doctor. By this point I was in a good amount of pain. He came in, talked to me for 2 minutes, diagnosed me with an injured sciatic, wrote a prescription and then left. I didn't really think much of it because I was hurting so much. All I wanted was pain meds to get some relief. So I headed to the Walgreens next door to get my meds. The lady in the drive-thru told me it would be a 45 minute wait. I was pretty much in tears at this point from the pain. So I headed to my parents. My Mom had their jet tub ready and waiting for me. When my meds were ready she went and got them for me.

It has been almost a week since I went to the doctor. I'm still having pain problems. So I went to my regular doctor today. She confirmed for me that I have injured my sciatic. If it's not better by Thursday i'll have to get physical therapy.

Boy do I feel old!
