Hi Spiney ~ Jeez I'm sorry you're still in a flare.
This one has lasted quite awhile! Has ice helped you at all? Ice is great, but you can't take it everywhere.
And like you said, driving doesn't do you any good. I had to take my son to the hospital for an MRI yesterday which is about 30 miles away, and by the time we got home I was about ready to scream! Just that 60 mile round trip was enough to make me want to kill someone. LOL (preferably the surgeon who left me like this. LOL )
I hope the pain starts to ease soon. Something has to give -- it just can't keep this up! You're going to have to see your doc if it does. Keep us posted, will you? And prayers are coming your way. God bless & take care. Hugs, Lee
