Day 7 - Monday afternoon lower back pain

Monday, October 08, 2012

It's been a busy day, and a good day. Went for a walk this morning, had a yummy breakfast and lunch. I'm doing better on selecting foods with less fat. emoticon

About 3 weeks ago, my lower back was so messed up that I could hardly move. It felt like my right hip joint was packed with barbed wire.... that's the best way I can describe it. So I scheduled an appt with my Chiropractor (he also teaches anatomy and physiology at the college and he's been keeping me going for over 10 years... Without him and a couple of massage therapists, I would not be moving right now due to a car wreck back in '03.)

After seeing him several times, last week I was walking on air feeling better than I'd felt in ages. That's when I joined SparkPeople. I've been able to exercise, stretch, use the Elliptical, Bowflex, and do yoga with no problem at all.

Last Friday night, I turned over in bed and I felt it ... that horrible twinge in my lower back that tells me it's happening again. So, on Saturday, I did the SP yoga poses for runners and thought it might help.... and it seemed to.

But this morning, while I was walking, it grabbed me again. Within just a few hours, my entire lower back and pelvic floor has tightened up like a vice and the barbed wire is back. This time on my left side. Stretch doesn't help it....

I have an appt with the Chiropractor on Friday . . . . until then, I'll be exploring other options for exercise..... DANG! This is temporary.

    I hope you feel better soon. I hate it when injury keeps you from being as active as you like. Keep trying! emoticon emoticon
