Tried to go swimming again but my back was too sore....I did whirlpool and back was so bad I had trouble getting dressed and undressed. I will try again to go to the swimming pool tomorrow and will limit my time in bed to 8 hours tonight. I recall having back pains before and was unable to lie in bed more than 5-6 hours at a time. Then I had to get up and walk around.
One of my spark friends thought I might need to see a chiropractor. I used to see a chiropractor but lost my faith in them as I actually got better after discontinuing monthly visits for several years. If I don't feel better by Tuesday I am going to give my orthopedic doctor's office a call and see who they would suggest I see. My knee doctor doesn't "do backs" so I will have to see someone else at his office. I see a second doctor for my feet there and my custom made orthotics don't seem to be helping lately, so I will need to see her again and see what she suggests.
I am going to go to work Monday morning unless I have more spasms in my back and/or neck that would make driving difficult.
At least I have an extra day to rest this week (plus that extra hour for daylight savings time changeover!!!! )!!!
