Lower Back Pain
Monday, July 25, 2011
I noticed back pain when I was trying to run my 1st 5k May and again when I was working on my patio deck. I knew that I was hurting but I just contributed it to my weight and being active. I've been attempting to run but can't run past a few minutes without pain. I went to my doctor and found out that my sciatic nerve is the problem. My doctor prescribed a two week regime of pain killers and muscle relaxant. I will start physical therapy this week. I'm looking forward to it. It's been a disappointing summer because I haven't been able to get into any races. My weight loss has stalled somewhat. I'm trying not to get discouraged because sometimes it is difficult.
