Okay, so I've had this vaguely recurring problem with the muscles in my lower back, on the left hand side, near the hip. Mostly it's just extreme pain which kinda radiates down my hip and into my leg. It'll stay for two or three weeks, and then go away for months and then come back.

It's back, and really it's worse than it's ever been. It doesn't hurt to bend over -- in fact, it feels better when I'm bent over (get your minds out of the gutter), but standing up straight nearly knocks me out with the pain.

800mg of Motrin does nothing. One of the Doc's hydrocodone put me to sleep, but didn't really do much for the pain. (though I /did/ sleep all the way through the night, so I liked that well enough) I've added 600 mg of Advil to the Motrin and I can at least sit at work and type and stuff, but godDAMN, this is annoying as all fuck.

And of course it happens RIGHT before I leave for Houston which happens RIGHT before Mardi Gras when we've got friends in town who want to see parades and stuff.

Whee. *grumble*

Still, pain is a pretty interesting experience. I don't /like/ it, but I am always curious about the ways it effects the way I think and act. It alternately has a clarifying effect and a muddling effect. One minute I'm thinking more clearly than I ever had, and the next, all I can think is, "Ugh.. food good... pain bad ..." or "Pleasedeargod I'll alwaysbegoodforeverandever if you just takethepainawayplease."
