Ouch...

Just called in to work, going to see a doctor instead. Thursday night, the recurring pain in my upper left leg came back with a vengence while pulling a pallet off a delivery truck, except this time, my left foot also went numb, which has never happened before. Still have pain and numbness... have to sit down to put my clothes on...

Meh...

Doctor pretty much said the same thing that was said a couple of years ago, when the pain first occurred and was in the exact same place, but not NEARLY as painful. A mystery "muscle condition". He said not much to do about those but treat them. This time, however, I was prescribed Prednisone, take 4 a day for 4 days, then 2 a day for 4 days, then 1 a day for 6 days. Those pills have no "coating" on them... leaving a bitter taste on my tongue long after taking them... blah...
