Where I’ve been

Lower back pain is a pain in the neck

Hey there. Just a quick note to let you know where I’ve been the last several days.

Basically, I was in Lower Back Pain Town. I’ve had problems with lower back pain, off and on, for several years now. Late last Wednesday night it was on in a big way. I strained something or had some sort of muscle spasm that caused such intense pain in my back I had to go to the emergency room. In gym shorts and sandals, because I wasn’t able to put on regular pants or shoes.

Luckily it just seems to be a muscle thing and not a slipped disc, and I’m doing a lot better now, though the muscle relaxant they gave me makes me a little spacey and a lot sleepy. Hence the lack of posts for the last few days. I’m going to try to get back to regular posting today.

Get well soon David! I’m no fan of chronic conditions here either, they seem manageable but I’d rather be cured and not have to deal with them.

Basically, I was in Lower Back Pain Town.

Is that in the United States? Because my guess was totally “in the United States”.

Oh god I was with you there. Threw my back out a couple of weeks ago. Still trying to regain strength in that. I thought I was fine, laid down. And when I tried to get up PAIIIIINNNNNNN

The human back was designed by the Devil when God was busy with the Platypus.

I had minor chronic low issues turn into a full fledged recurring lower back injury this year and it was a pain in the neck (something also am having).
