Why does the lord keep testing me
Why do I need more surgery? I cannot take it. What are my options?
Hi all 👋 I’m so happy to have found this group! I have recently been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and my doctor had me go to a physical therapist to see if I could start regaining some mobility in my spine. I had my first appointment on Monday, and my physical therapist was super kind and listened, so of course I cried at finally having acknowledgement for this pain I’ve had for so long 😂
Day one after my first session, my pain was CRAZY intense, like one of my worse flare days. I couldn’t even get out of bed without wanting to yelp and didn’t get any work done (I work from home). Did anyone else have a bad flare after their first appointment? I’m doing the stretches the therapist asked me to do, but holy heck it’s brutal. Is it just because I am stretching things that have not been worked in a while? I intend to ask him when I go back for my next appointment, but I was curious if anyone else has had this problem.
