I’m Incapacitated

Last night after returning home from a party with friends of ours, I bent down to unstrap a sandal. In doing so, I heard a crunch sound in my lower back. As a result I took two extra strength Tylenol. I felt much better this morning, but the same thing happened when I bent to put on my golf shoes. So I’m in for the day at least, suffering through back spasms. My husband has been such a big help. On a more positive note, our Ice Princess is feeling more confident once again on the ice after overcoming a broken heel on one foot and a broken ankle on the other. She came in third place yesterday at a big competition. We are so proud of her! Notice her new costume? She takes after both her grammies in the glitz department. I will sit and myLot until my back hurts too much.

Yikes those back spasms sound painful. Hope it heals quickly and you don't have further problems. Love the Ice Princess new costume and she certainly looks very happy with her medal hanging around her neck.

@DianneN good luck with the chiropractor. I've always had a good experience with them when my back has gone out

@Marilynda1225 I had a pinched nerve years ago and our friend was a chiropractor. He made me all better. My brother told me this one is good, and I hope so. Thank you!

@1hopefulman No, I had a pinched nerve years ago. If I’m not better in a bit, I will see a chiropractor. I hate feeling like this and hope he can help. My brother used him when he was in Florida and loved him.

I am so sorry for your back Dianne. I do not feel very well today, may be it's the weather, may be I ate something I should have not. I feel blah. Congratulations to the Ice Princess.

@LadyDuck I’m trying to work on notifications today. It’s my first day without back spasms. It’s awful to be stuck in the house and flat on my back. I have the name of a chiropractor if I don’t see improvement by tomorrow. Hope you feel better today, Anna.

I'm so sorry to hear that your back is injured! My son had the same experience, years back. Chad bent over to put his shoes on and he had to crawl to a phone, to call for help! A Chiropractor got Chad's back healed up. I will pray for you, Dianne Ice Princess is precious, congratulations to her for this wonderful accomplishment:)

@DianneN Try soaking in a very warm tub of water, the warmer the better. This is what gave me relief, when I had a lower back ache. It might help you, also.

I had a back spasm once. That was a brand new pain for me. My sister did acupuncture on my lower back, so that helped. I hope you feel better soon. I love her new costume!!! Congratulations to your granddaughter.

@Corbin5 , a massage on the foot also eases some body pains, but better to see a medic to avoid complications.

@DianneN I thought about you this morning. How are you feeling now? Good idea to see a chiropractor. I had a good Jewish one in the States. Here I just see my doctor and other doctors. Take care and I hope the pain disappears soon. You are welcome and I can see why you are proud of her. She is doing what she loves and that is so important.

Thank you! Back pain is a pain! lol I’m using Salonpas now and it’s helping a bit. If I’m not better in a day or two, I will see a chiropractor that my brother used and swore was wonderful. That’s my granddaughter. Actually, she had to see a psychologist to get over her fear of jumping on the ice, but we are so happy she’s getting her groove back. She’s a terrific little figure skater.
