And now I hurt my back

I twisted it or something, plus a lot of driving and walking. Now I can barely get around, it’s very painful, I had to miss two days of work because of it. My sister is a nurse she knows how doctors treat my condition, so I am taking Ibuprofen and icing it and just generally taking it easy. Walks actually help too, sitting around is bad for it. Back to work Friday I hope.

Sounds like you’re doing everything right for it bud. I hope you get better very soon!

Blessings and prayers,


I have the same problem with my hip, have to go for an x-ray on Tuesday. Am in pain after I go for a walk. Hopefully its not arthritis!

back problems are extremely debilitating, sorry this has happened to you, pretty much resting and gentle movement and what you are taking is all you can do.
sport injury therapists really understand these injuries, hope you feel better soon.
take care

Hope you feel better by Friday!

I am so sorry to hear you got laid up. I hope you feel better soon. Back injuries are the worst. I’m glad you have a nurse in the family.

Best thoughts and I hope you get back on your feet soon.

I hurt my back trying to lift something heavy earlier in the year. Bad news was it was uncomfortable and hurt for a while - Good news was that it did go away completely. You should be feeling better soon. Good thing you have a nurse in the family. Take it easy in the meantime
