Seizure Medicine- A Personal Note

I'm taking seizure medicine. Luckily, it's not for my case, it's for nerve pain. I have been unable to walk normally, sit, or stand for a very long 4 months now. I'm now on a new diagnosis and course of action which involves seizure medicine and antidepressants-- although I am not depressed and do not have seizures. Hmm...I hope they're right about this one (apparently both are used for pain). I think I want to be a syringe or an icepack for Halloween...or maybe a pissed-off nerve.

Maybe this isn't very exciting to anyone but me and my family/friends, but I thought I'd share anyway. If you are ever having pain in your tailbone, legs, feet, feel free to contact me. I've had a whole circus of tests and remedies performed on me-- CT Scans, X-rays, MRIs, injections, bone scans, Ultrasounds, physical therapy, acupuncture, cupping, catheters (sorry if that's too personal, but let me tell ya about that one!), EMGs, steroids, a discogram, and I can't even count how many people have seen my butt through this process (and, yes, all of these are plural). This is a true life test, but I think I'm passing.
