Light at the End of the Tunnel!!

Well, I hope that's what I'm seeing anyway! Finally got to have the MRI done on my back last Thursday. That little pill they gave me to relax my fear of that closed-in space was a story within itself! I certainly gave my family a few good laughs for the afternoon! But, I made it through the test without crawling out of the machine and ticking everybody off! The nurse called today and I have bulging discs at L3 and 4 and L4 and 5 vertebrae, so off I go to see another doctor at the end of the month. Hopefully, I am getting closer to a conclusion for this pain I have endured since May! I am more than ready to be able to participate in life again!


  1. Glad you managed to get a diagnosis. Bulging discs are not fun. I worked on the same problem myself for a and pilates, back strengthening on a large ball. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. I also took some fun loopy medicine before I went into the oh so very confining MRI tunnel. :-) I hope that you are able to find some relief, soon!
