*le sigh* Was really wishing I could make dance class tonight, but it doesn't look like it is happening. My low back has been really bad off for about 3 weeks now. It almost completely went out last Wednesday - couldn't hardly stand or walk. The left side of my pelvic girdle rotated anteriorly. I call that getting pretzeled up. At least it was still level and hadn't shifted down and THEN rotated. It happens.
I've been going to the chiropractor once or twice a week for a while now. My back hasn't been in this bad a shape in a long time. I guess I'm overdoing it, not sure where though. I can see trying to play lumberjack and chop logs in the back yard, Friday a week ago, and then go skating 2 hours on Sunday was probably a bad idea. Probably why I had to go to the chiropractor twice the next week, Monday and Friday, with a near total collapse on Wednesday. It could be the added weight lifting putting pressure on my spine or it could be one of my exercise classes or it could be an exercise classes that I love. Individually, it could be nothing, but I guess collectively, it is too much.
This evening, I decided to go get a massage instead of going to dance. I tried to walk my mile long lap around the parade ground at work and my back started acting up and pulling really bad. I was hoping it would loosen it, but it seemed to only make it angry. Maybe some good rub-rub will help. I get so tired of being in pain. A friend gave me some mobic a couple of weeks ago (just as I was thinking about calling the doctor for a ‘sript) and I’m not sure that was a good thing. I might have started doing more because I was hurting less. Eh, who knows. It’s probably a catch-22. All I know is I’m very tired of this. It hurts to sit, it hurts to walk, it hurts to sleep. I do believe it could even be making me a bit cranky.
Anyway, done whining now. Thanks for listening.
