Muscle Spasm in Back
Friday, February 04, 2011
All I did was bend over to put a pot away this morning and, just like the t.v. commercials, I could NOT straighten up! Never had this before in my life. I tried to gently stretch it out but no luck; figured I'd be relegated to the sofa with a heating pad for the day, but Ray wanted to go to the gym; so I tagged along.
Managed to finally get my running shoes on(!) and then I did a light intensity workout on the treadmill for 30 minutes. I actually felt better afterwards! Strength exercises were foregone today however.
When I got home, I took a 222 and am sitting with a heating pad on my back right now. Hopefully I'll be better tomorrow.
Never again will I pooh-pooh the ad for the back pain meds on t.v. LOL
