Default Back Problems

Ok, take away my man card....

I did something to my back yesterday lifting an empty case of beer bottles. Now 24 hours later my back is spasming (sp?) till where I'm basically religated to my easy chair. I was up twice yesterday after it happened, once to pee & once to go to bed.

It'll spasm & my right leg will draw up like im a flamingo.

No drugs in the house, no way in hell I'm driving to the doc, I'm on a heating pad.

Any ideas, tips, hints, tricks, help or suggestions?

if I could get to the refidgerator, i'd RDWHAHB...

Zac

Well my back is so bad at times that it spasms when I sneeze. I haven't seen a doctor because I'm you know, a man...and we're too stubborn to go to doctors (even though I work with them.)

So I feel for yah....but I don't have any suggestions except maybe a brutally hot soak in a tub....but getting in and out might be a problem....are there any little kids, midgets, chinese women who could walk on your back??? That always helps me...

Slow, gentle stretching... grab one foot, then lean all the way back, then lean forward grab the other foot... slow gentle movements.

I hear ya dude, I've been having my left leg go numb randomly lately.... It sucks when I go to step on that foot, and suddenly it decides it's not there anymore. Been falling into a lot of walls lately.

Lift with your legs.

That way, next time you'll just throw out your leg and can at least get around with a cane.

Aging is fun ain't it. Nature has a way of reminding us of all the hard or stupid stuff we've done to ourselves huh?

Learn the Million Dollar Roll!

EVERY morning before I get out of bed, I have SWMBO push the legs over, and I've had (knocking on wood) great luck since.

Gila, The box was in behind some other boxes, so I did the man thing & just got a finger hold & pulled. AHHHHH. Yeah, stupid stuff I have done. I tried to quit doing that stuff, it just dosn't work out.

Chriso: I afraid to try to get in the floor, SWMBO won't be back till after 8 tonight! I tried to get in the floor yesterday & couldn't make it! Even on a good day I can't touch my toes, but yeah, that should help. No spasms in the last hour or so, but of couse, the hardest thing I have done is change channels with the remote.

Revvy, reckon my 120lb hound dog would come in & walk on my back? All the neighborhood kids are in school or at day care. I did know this little chick from college, wonder if the wifey would mind if she came over?
I have a tub not 10 feet from my chair, except it's full of brewing stuff, including a few full cases of beer. The other tub is upstairs & the staris weren't very friendly going to bed last night. A scalding hot soak sounds really good tho. I'll try that tonight!

I always told SWMBO I needeed a tap within arms reach of my easy chair for times just like this..she didn't listen!


arg......

Seee there is the problem. You held a pre-kegorator meeting and got a "50% against" vote from your board members.

My kegorator just magically appeared within 3 foot of my sofa overnite chilled and ready to fill. The wife, umm "board members" scratched her, um their, head trying to figure out what changed but, when all was done the worst I got was "Is that seriously going to stay like that?"


"Uhhhhhhh. No VP. I plan to put the kegs in at some point"

Get the book Treating Your Own Back!! Till then lay on your stomach to start, put a pillow folded in half under your chest support your self with your elbows in front of you, now move lifting your pelvises slightly to both sides until you feel the pain is in the center not off to one side. Lay like that for a few min 5 or 6 times a day. GET THE BOOK it will help.
