No, I don't. I'm just going to stretch a lot and not exercise for a couple of days. I'll be fine. My friend sent me a PDF of exercises for lower back pain, so I'm going to do that on a heating pad for a couple of days and just do my upper body exercises. Thanks for caring! emoticon

Do you have any free clinics in your area?

Thanks, Jen, but I have no money to go to a doctor. I know there are a lot of people on this site from places with socialized medicine, but I'm in the U.S. and there are few options here unless you have money or insurance.

If you're having that much pain, I'd suggest going back to your doctor to get it checked out. That way you can be sure that there's not a medical problem that needs to be corrected, and your doctor should also be able to give you exercise suggestions based on your condition.

Hope that helps,

You could try things like back extension, swimming, boxer, superman, airplane pose, two-part pushups, one arm dumbbells (I think it is one arm dumbbell rows), and single leg bridge-ups. I think most of these can be found in the core workout part. If you have access to a gym the rowing machine could help.

As I'm losing weight in my belly, my spine is shifting and starting to cause me pain. I had back surgery for a herniated disk many years ago, and the doctor said I had to stay thin to keep it from coming back. The pain then was on the right side, now it's on the left. I can't even mop the floor without pain.

Not looking for a quick fix I have Aleve for that -- but would like any info for what has been successful for you.

I just started doing the SP core workout videos on YouTube. I'm specifically using the bands, but also doing leg lifts and situps separately. I know I have back problems, so I stretch before and after and only do 10 reps with each set. Right now, I'm trying to do 3 sets a day. I'm really going slowly because of my back.

I'm also doing an isometric exercise that is supposed to help straighten my neck and shoulders. I stand against a wall, suck in my belly, tighten my butt, push back my shoulders and tuck my chin until my head is against the wall. Hold for a 10 count with 20 reps.
