I did something to my lower back moving heavy boxes for an attorney at work yesterday. By late in the afternoon I was coping with bouts of pain flowing into my left leg and making it feel as if my knee was going to give out. Pain in my back woke me several times last night and has kept me relatively inactive today. I tried to do my exercise video today, but couldn't do it for the pain. I'm doing my crunches and straight leg raises tonight, the best correcting action for this type of problem, but should have done them for the first time last night or earlier today. Now I'm paying in pain for not doing it sooner.
I get so frustrated when my body fights back, refuses to do what I want. Getting older and having your body fight your intentions is frustrating. I have no patience with these physical issues and resent having to cope with the unpleasant symptoms and the days I have to wait for it to resolve. Now I'm done whining and will go do the exercises and try to get some sleep.
