My back is aching. As I said in my last post Chris and I had a very busy day – hiking, visiting with a neighbor and then gardening.
Gardening has been taking a huge toll on my back lately. Sometimes I can garden for quite a while without my back bothering me, but other times it starts hurting almost right away.
My lower back goes into spasms after I’ve been leaning forward for a while. Heck, even when I sweep the floor (which I did early this morning – it’s amazing how much hair that dog is shedding) my back often goes into spasms and sometimes aches for hours afterwords.
I have a weird back. I was born with two of my lower vertebrae fused on one side. So one side is normal and the other side of my lower back isn’t. My back never bothered me much in the past, but I guess it’s starting to catch up with me now. At least the pain goes away after a few hours if I lie down and let the muscles in my lower back relax for a while. Well most of the time it does.
I think I’ll find our heating pad and put some heat on my back.
