Pain level a 5 or 6. Slow improvement. I took 1/3 of a muscle relaxer last night and it made me (more) fruity. It was like coming out from under anesthesia. I am glad I didn't take a full one. The good old teaspoon/teacup rule. I did sleep well though. About time for more physical therapy. I don't remember how did you get rid of your sciatica Liz?
