This 33 year old body is falling apart

I wrote at the beginning of the month about my fall. I did indeed break my elbow(maybe more classified as a minor fracture than a complete break), but that has healed up quite a bit and I have almost complete use of my arm. I am about 15 degrees short of having complete range of motion, but not bad for 3 weeks. For the most part the pain is gone. Unfortunately the lower half of my body is giving me issues. I don't think it is a recurrence of Cauda Equina, as the pain/sensations are different. It feels like I have run a marathon. It has already been several days, and is affecting what we do on a daily basis. Hopefully I can hang in there until the girls are in school then get in to see my doctor. I had hoped that I was one of the lucky ones that didn't need daily medication for pain, but that may not be the case.

I really should have been going to get seen regularly. I was hoping that I would be pain free enough to manage. Apparently things have changed.

That sounds like it's not good. I am clueless as to what that could be.

It is definitely not fun. I am hoping that it will pass. The last thing I want is to be in a medication fog when I have kids to take care of.

And everyone says "but honey, you're so young!" right? I hope you'll be okay, that's a worry. Glad the elbow is healing.
