Gone. Today was gone. The meds for a really bad back day wiped out the entire day, almost more worrying than the pain on these bad days. It is the back, the disc, that is causing problems today, not the sciatic nerve trailing pain down my leg into my foot. I have recently realized that the nerve is probably quite healed. I can't give up everything I want to or need to do just because it sometimes causes me this terrific pain. I need determine what causes the pain and to find a way to manage it when it happens.
