I have Arthritis
« on: March 20, 2013, 08:07:28 PM »
I went to the VA again today and got the results from an x-ray I had back in February. I have degenerative facets on the right side of my spine going from my L4-L5 and L5-S1. The doctor told me that meant I pretty much have arthritis. Physical Therapy probably wont help the pain go away, but may make me more flexible and more able to withstand the pain.

I am 26 years old and I have arthritis... Thank you US government  :police:

I'm sorry.

May The Lord ease your pain.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy!

Any medication that can help the pain?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

The doctor recommended Aleve for temporary pain relief. He doesn't think physical therapy will help, but we have to try that before we can try chiropractic.

Lord, have mercy on David.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy on your servant David.
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
