Well, this past weekend my sciatic nerve started acting up again. And it lasted longer then it normally does.....Of course, right before acen. And there is a chance it might still be hurting during acen.
So basically my whole right thigh feels like I majorly pulled a muscle.....It's a little better today, though.

Also I still have a bit of a cold....For nearly three weeks now.

Not to mention the female curse should be arriving any day now.

So..Much...Stress....



So topic is......Stress and health stuff popping up right before acen.This year and past years.

I feel for you. I suffered from sciatica for six months. I finally no longer have it due to a successful back surgery.

Make sure you throughly stretch before moving around after sitting down or laying down for extended periods of time. You most likely know all the fun medical tricks from doctors but if you need some tips let me know.

My back was fun to deal with, I'll have a fun scar to show others once it is fully healed. I'm also having a lot of eating issues from the surgery. I can only eat one solid meal a day. I will be going to the doctor next week to get that square away.

Health issues are no fun, especially when they interrupting parts of your life that bring you joy. Just keep surrounding yourself with people that are your support system and work with doctors to bring you back to fully functioning lifestyle.

Remember keep faith as well it will get better. :thumbup:

I think my sciatica is self inflicted.....From years of bad posture.. v-v
Both my parents have it..So they taught me some tricks.
I normally only suffer from it after sitting in certain positions for extended amounts of time. Friday my school had a tornado warning, and we were kneeling hunched over on hard floors.....After that I felt it worse then ever. Normally it's just that pinched/sharp feeling in the one spot, and goes away after awhile...
I keep putting the heating pad on it,and I take meds every so often. And I stretch nearly every time I get up.

And I wish you luck with your problems as well!

Did you go to a doctor for a cold to make sure it's not nothing else?

Usually anything longer for two weeks isn't good.

But I hope things work out for you though and you feel better. Everyone has been stressed out for the past years lately X(

Your cold is probably hanging around from the stress. Prolonged stress causes your immune system to weaken or make it shut down. I know with nerve problems it's not easy exercising sometimes, but try and make sure you get a full night's sleep every night until Acen. Sleep really helps your immune system fight those icky things.

keep the faith, town-neighbor!

Chicken soup is a proven anti-sickness. I am a licensed doctor so I know this and am not making it up.

Fool! The chicken gives it it's powers. Vegetable soup does nothing.

I recently got a bad case of don't-give-a-crap at work for the past week or so. I think it's only going to get worse until I get to the con. It should subside to just a mild case afterwards. Though not anywhere nearly as rough as sciatica I must admit. I hope it gets better for you and you won't have to miss out on the fun this weekend.

Try a good chiropractor. You know that they are good if they take x-rays before they recommend any kind of treatment. I love my chiropractor, and go to Chiro One, they have sites all over the city and suburbs. They also offer a free evaluation, if you get a recommendation to go there by someone else who is already a going.

As for the cold, take some extra vitamins, from now till about a week after con. It will help get rid of your cold, and help keep you from picking up anything else while at the con!!
