My back has been giving me problems lately. I wake up several times at night, trying to roll over but my back won't let me. Well, eventually it will, after adjusting my entire body to a point where it will just drop to the side I want, haha. But getting up is a hardship and the first half hour being up is as well. After that it is getting better. Sometimes I wish I was spineless (literally in this case, figuratively I already know I am in some areas, haha).

I visited my Rheumatologist and told her about it. Of course, she was all over me:-). She came up with three conclusions of what it could be:
1. A consequence of a muscle-spasm I had a few months ago
2. RA in my back
3. Osteoporosis

In case no 1, she gave me muscle-relaxers to see if that would do the trick. So far, the only thing it has done is made me groggy and sleepy. The pain has not diminished yet, but I felt like having stepped right out of a zombie movie, haha.
In case no 2 and 3, she had x-rays taken of my back and depending on the results, she may have me take a bone-density test.
In case the muscle relaxers didn't work, she also gave me a prescription for another pain killer. So far it seems to be heading the pain killer-way, but I will wait and see for a few more days and practice patience (my weak point haha) with the relaxers.
