I really did my back in yesterday with all the shoveling of snow that I ended up doing. I think I went out and shoveled four times for a total of about five to five and a half hours.
By the last outing at 1 in the morning I had to shovel hunched over as my lower back was in spasms.
Today I can barely move. It takes me a few minutes to get up in order to walk around and walking up the stairs is excruciating. I’ve spent most of the day lying on the couch with my legs bent. Oh and I’ve taken a lot of aspirin to try to take down any inflammation in my back.
My back doesn’t bother me too often luckily. Only when I really over do it. I’m actually surprised it doesn’t bother me more often as I seem to have been born with a congenital defect. Two of my lumbar vertebrae are fused on one side. Like I said I was born with this problem. It’s really fun when I’ve had to have a spinal tap as the fusion is right where they usually try to stick that big needle in your back!
I just need to wait until my back clicks back into place. I hope it shifts back into place soon!
