Back pain update
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
I got a massage in hopes that it'll help with the pain...it made it worse. I couldn't sleep because it hurt so much to roll over and get comfortable. At 4am I was incredibly thirsty so I went downstairs to get some water. It was the worst pain I've experienced. I barely bent to get ice and it hurt so bad that I just broke down in sobs. It's frustrating!
My back is still hurting, but I'm trying to walk around and move a little bit. I sat on a medicine ball for about 15 minutes to help with my posture. There are some exercises to do as well, which I plan on trying and taking slowly to stretch out my back. If it hurts like hell, I'm gonna stop. I just don't want it to get stiff.
I just feel very frustrated and annoyed. I love my workouts. I love running and zumba and I love the way I feel after. My mom said I shouldn't do it anymore because it's probably the cause of my pain. I have calluses on my foot which were painful but they don't hurt anymore, my knee was swollen but that's fine now. It's just my stupid back. I need to practice stretching my back and strengthening it. I don't want to stop exercising when I've come so far and it's something I love.
