I was helping my wife clean out the closet yesterday and I’ve got a feeling I didn’t pick up a box correctly.
Yesterday afternoon, my lower back began hurting… all the way down at the base of my spine.
I tried heat. I tried ointment. I tried advil.
I managed to sleep through the night without any trouble, but man am I hurting today!
It’s the kind of pain that makes you walk like you are eighty-years old. I’m hobbling around like an old man saying “ouch.. ouch.. ouch…”
If I lie down or am sitting it doesn’t hurt. It’s only when I walk.
So I’m not planning on going anywhere today.
Did some research on back pain relief and found this on familydoctor.org.
I’m hoping a day of taking it easy and having good posture will put humpty dumpty together again.
We really are very fragile and take our good health for granted. It’s amazing how little it takes to put us out of commission.
I feel bad for those who have to deal with chronic pain. It must be difficult.
Fortunately, sitting at the computer doesn’t hurt…
