So now I know what a bulging disk feels like. I don't like it! On the eve of leaving for a trip to Oceanside, California and Camp Pendleton to graduate our latest crop of Devil Pups from SoUtah, I was unable to walk or sleep because of the pain. A trip to the ER brought to light two small bulges in L4-L5 and L5-S1. A shot in the . . . um . . biggest part of me, a prescription for a pain killer, and a referral to "pain management" brings me some mental and physical relief. I will not make this year's graduation trip but I will concentrate on healing.
