Ouch! A little set back

Sunday, March 30, 2008

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.

    Ouch! Well, at least you are getting adjustements fast, instead of continuing to ignore it. Smart you.
