So, I posted a blog late last night about my current problem: www.fatgirlslim.org/?p=3
I am having serious, serious back pain. It's almost like when I get that twinge in my hip where I can't stand upright without screaming in agony. Almost.
This is a dull throb, all over the (ironically large) small of my back right along the line of my pelvis. It's sort of... stopping me from standing upright. I can feel myself leaning forward, trying to relieve the pain.
I've taken paracetamol and codeine, I've had painkilling rub applied, and my Mum was kind enough to find the Deep Heat spray, and she's just sprayed that on.
(Mmm, wintergreen mint gum smell.)
But it's the day after I posted that, and it's still sore, despite my back being fine last night when I went to bed. I'm crossing my fingers that this is very temporary, and that rest and a good, straight-backed computer chair will help with that, instead of my comfortable can-lean-all-the-way-back computer chair with the mesh back.
All it will mean for me, personally, for the foreseeable future, is that I'm not going to be exercising until I go swimming on Monday or Tuesday. If I can't stand up straight, I don't want to attempt any exercises that might cause me to hurt my back MORE than it already is.
Urgh, I can't wait until I get to a weight where my body isn't working against me at every turn.
