Back Update

So the sports medicine doc didn't think it was joints...he thinks it's a muscle issue. Which honestly I way prefer. The joint thing seemed kind of unfixable. Muscle issues just need a little time and tlc to work out. So I am now on muscle relaxers round the clock (totally safe while breastfeeding) and I start some physical therapy this afternoon. The muscle relaxers don't seem to be doing much but making me really sleepy. Really hoping the physical therapy helps and they are able to show me some stretches and stuff that will help work this out.

Keep me in your prayers peeps. This is getting really old and my post partum emotions can't take this much longer.

Honey, I am so sorry! I had neck issues after Will was born (but a bit later on) that nearly incapacitated me, so I have a ton of sympathy for you. Physical therapy was a GODSEND for me, but not the first time. The first session, I felt WORSE afterward, but then, it seemed to improve with each session. Also, they do a lot of heat/ice/massage therapy, which is great for a new mommmy.

Keep us posted.
