Sciatica ,The Horrible Backache

 As flowers come with thrones literally though simbolically sometimes memories of Mery times include some soar touch either sometimes.

When left for Karachi I was fine I mean flu free, fever free and any kind of ache free as well. But after two days I suddenly got worse backache from the mid area between both shoulders and ending where actual back is. It started in the morning when I was carrying breakfast try for everyone. I felt suddenly piercing pain and destination few steps away seemed impossible to reach. I stood still. Took some deep breaths and told my Brin it's not a big deal so behave (I do it when needed and it works thankfully).

Could be my brain's positive response probably that I received a weak urge to rise next step though task still seemed so difficult to achieve. I did not want everyone to notice my issue so I tried to look normal and reached where I had to be seated. That was another problem because attempt to sit with such a shocking pain was going to reveal what I wanted to keep secret. So I joined their humorous talk by adding a sentence smilingly. Handed try to hubby meanwhile and then leant to sit on floor bed(son ordered rack for bed later).

Oh dear will never forget how I managed to hide my suffering from audience so they cannot realize my misery. Still they noticed from my efforts that something is wrong.

Hubby saw with curious eyes and eldest asked is there something wrong? I replied that my back is aching little bit for no reason. 

Hubby suggested if pain does not go in sometime take brufin  (tablet for body pain) .Eldest son advised that if pain stays longer go to the doctor . But i somehow forgot to take both advises in hustle and bustle of days of reunion. That was worst backache i had after almost 18 years .Yes first backache i got after the birth of my elder son .It made me cry and kept from doing anything physically for a two weeks almost . But when no medicine worked back then i followed my own intuition and started exercise showed in a morning show that was new beginning for my inner growth i must say because the feeling of fitness and confidence i got by exercise changed me as whole person. 

But hard part that then i was younger and doing such intense workout in this part of age (51) feels hard. So i searched on google by writing "whole body pain" after long struggle i read term Sciatica and when i read reasons that can cause it specially by pressing the central nerve i felt bit relevant .I checked a site where i read all about the Sciatica and followed the movements done in picture by a Chinese lady. Believe it or not after doing it for first time i felt so light and alive . 

Sadly i now found so many pictures and sites but could not locate the similar one with specific movements that i wanted to share here . But you know it's one click away if (God forbid) if anyone need it. 

Why i suspected about pressing central nerve ?

Well i am doing certain type of yoga movements since some years and i doubted if one of them might have pressed the central nerve . It is right or wrong but my pain was gone in two days completely by the grace of kind God who shows the way when one is determined in real means. I am glad that i could feel better without visiting doctor or taking medicine thankfully!   

Thank you sooo much for bearing with me sweet people! 

Was away from blogging for two days due to some reasons.Back now will be visiting you all asap !

Keep taking great care and having faith in divine force an ocean in which we all are floating ! hugs and blessings!

  4. Oh dear, sounds like you have had a trapped nerve and might need some physio I hope you will be ok - sciatica also is not nice I have that in my upper legs sometimes so can understand how you must have felt with both that and back pain as well. Hope you will be well and that yoga will be helpful (I find pilates, which is similar, helps).

    1. Dear Betty I hardly for your hand ache my friend. I know how bad it can feel for anyone specially to a creative person like you. I am glad your hand was improving (according to last update I read at your blog).
      The pain I have suffered went from upper back to upper legs and restricted my mobility instantly. I was so afraid how will I get back to my normal movements. I am utterly grateful for the exercise that helped. Thanks to modern technology and above all the creator who has sent solutions to to all problems we face in day to day life

  7. I'm sorry that you went through such miserable pain, Baili. You were proactive in finding a way to alleviate your pain. Way to go! You're much better at controlling your brain than I am. (Why is it that we women feel that we have to soldier on and hide our pain?). May you continue to be pain free!

    I've been swimming in a pool almost every day at our condo building in Honolulu. It's helping me slowly eliminate my limp that resulted from my broken foot and rib. I hobbled so long that it "froze" my left hip and I could only walk with a painful limp. My hip and limp have improved so much!!!

    I'm thrilled that I can swim in a pool because I hadn't done any swimming since before the pandemic. My eyes were too bad to risk going in the ocean last year. But, I'm going to get in the ocean this year!!!

    Wishing you all the best, my dear friend. Love and blessings to you!

    1. Precious friend Louise. Pain attacked surprisingly and I tried to hide because I didn't want to spoil the cheerful moments family had after long time. I thought first have to give it sometime and figure out what and why. I would have told after a day or two if excersice have not been helpful.
      This is my way to resolve personal issues. I was pretty much dependent on emotional support that I would need immediately but I feel things have been changed since my parents left.
      I want to be stronger in all ways and can't understand why honestly.. Your pain hurts my heart my friend!
      I am so relieved that youfoot and rib improved by the grace of God!
      How nice swimming is helping with recovery.
      Hope you are enjoying your stay to fullest.
      Hugs and blessings to you my kind friend!

  8. Dear Baili - Your attitude reminded me of my late mother, who tried to suffer in silence, but families easily found it. Fortunately her husband was a doctor. As for you, if the pain was due to sciatica, mild sciatica usually goes away over time. I’d like you to get medical advice when you have the same symptoms next time. Prevention is the best cure. Take care. I’ll see you again in spring.

    1. Dear Yoko I don't know whether it is a good or bad idea but yes since I started to realize that I am big enough to deal with som small issues I try to keep things to myself unless it is necessary to share.
      I am finding it very helpful in order to grow more mature and responsible person.
      Exercise worked magically and pain disappeared in few days.

  11. Sciatica is quite painful from what I have read, Baili, and while you attempted to hide your discomfort, your family sensed your pain and offered good advice. I was happy to read you were able to get relief through exercises and it is wonderful what can be found on the Internet.

    I read about the power outages in many parts, perhaps all, of Pakistan and wondered if this affected you as well.

    1. Dear Dorothy as far I know about power shortage in our country is due to some underlying technical fault in grid system. Nothing further has been revealed by authorities. Whole state is without electricity most of the time. Nor any information when things go back to normal

      Delete
    2. Thanks, Baili, for the update which sounds absolutely dreadful. I know you have posted out power outages in the past and wonder how people get anything done without knowing when it could happen next.

    3. dear Dorothy i know it is embarrassing but a saying common here comes into mind in respond you asked here about people and it is "orphans are used to cry"
      people of my homeland used to suffer from such pains and sadly things seems to be worsen as times moves ahead ,seems our authorities are taking us back to stone age sigh .
      will you believe that sometimes watersupply is stopped for two weeks and we learn that canal is under cleaning process ??? what about alternative ?
      i wish people knew here how to protest for their rights .thousands of people gather and demand blah blah for politicians but for their own rights they hardly know what they must do .my complains can stretch for so long so i try to stop here .remember my naïve homelanders in prayers

  13. Hello Baili,
    It is strange how pains can suddenly appear, I tend to hide pain from the family. I feel it makes it worse dwelling on the pain. I am glad the exercises helped you through your pain. I do hope it is gone and never comes back. Take care, have a great weekend!
