Well, of all things - I have a herniated L5 disc. While it was extremely painful for a few days, I am feeling better today. I'm a little loopy from the medicine, but it's working - at last. Put a bit of a damper on my exercise goals and I'm eating way too much candy - my comfort food.
Silly me - I felt something pop last Friday when I was climbing over a fence after fishing a plastic goose out of a creek - (don't ask). I foolishly didn't get it checked and kept thinking the soreness would go away if I just kept going and worked it out. But, by Thursday I couldn't walk or stand without assistance.
I've been to the chiropractor daily since then. I am allowed and encouraged to take easy walks. I expect to be able to stop the muscle relaxers after today. I hope so, cause they're not conducive to much activity. I gues that's the idea.
I'm out of town later this week so hopefully will be able to get some swim time in.
