    Hi All,

    I don't usually ask for prayers in here but I'm really down and out. I have a pinched nerve in my lower back that will not get better. I had to wait 11 days to see a doctor (after ER visit) due to holiday schedules and I'm and still waiting on a MRI to be approved by my insurance. They have upped my pain medicine but I still hurt constantly. I've had severe pain before but never constantly for almost two weeks now. It is really terrible, I can only lay on my left side when I sleep (if I sleep) and I can lay in a easy chair with my leg propped up. My left leg is shot. It colapses when i try to walk anymore than 30 ft. So a trip to the bathroom is an adventure. I'm really worried there is nerve damage. I've missed several days at work and only have 10 more days I can take. Please pray for God to heal. Thanks very much!!

    Oh gosh!! Praying for you!!

    In the meantime, put ice where the nerve is to help to bring down any swelling. Also sleep with a pillow between your legs - it will help a lot!!!

    Thanks everyone for your prayers. I seem to be doing a little better. Ice does help. Thanks again.

    Got that tip from my physical therapist Lisa Morrone (you can look her up online at www.lisamorrone.com). She's been fantastic with us and she's also a dear sister in Christ. Ice is the remedy for most everything - except my muscle spasms that are causing my migraines. But for anything like what you have? She says ice. You can even put it in a plastic bag then wet a paper towel and wrap the bag in that to put on it. It's VERY cold that way but a great way to get the cold through to the pain.

    Prayers... I know how bad that can be.

    I too would recommend seeing a physical therapist. ;)

    Wish I was near to help...Spinal neutral position, electrical stem, and ice.

    Dear Lord, Thank You for hearing the prayers of Your people concerning Rick's pain in his lower back from a pinched nerve. We thank Ann and Benjamin for suggesting ice and a physical therapist and her site. Lord, we ask that You continue to heal his pinched nerve and we give You all of the praise! In the name of Jesus. AMEN

    Thanks for the internet site, annsni, I plan to share this with a niece who has back pain too.
