Oh crap!!!!

Blogging will resume when I can get out of bed without crying. Soon hopefully. I really hate having a bad back :-( Mustn't moan (oh, yeah? just listen to me....) it's been OK for years but not today, oh no, not today...........

Get thee to an Osteopath! They worked miracles on mine, I could hardly walk beggining 2004... 4 weeks later, and yes, I still had problems (one of my L vertebra does not sit correctly, and so presses on the sciatic... never good when it gets "stuck"...) but it was 1000% better!
Very gentle *hugs*
sending healing thoughts your wey

I would usually totally agree with you NikkI. My sanity has been saved by several osteopaths over nearly (gulp) 30 years ( I was a child sufferer - obviously:-)) but - and this is really dumb I know - I have got so fat I am too embarassed to go. Dumb, like I said. But there you have it, pain making me far too honest. Or all the medicinal alcohol. Found a great book in the bookcase with a series of exercises starting from "When you are in agony......" and they are beginning to work - couldn't have typed this long yesterday - back to bed!
Thank you all for your good wishes - much appreciated!!

Ooh, nasty! I was getting quite regular bouts at one time. So horrible and frustrating. Then I discovered the problem was the position I had come to naturally sleep in which was actually twisting my spine. Since forcing myself to sleep in a more "kind to spine" position, no problems for a good while now - touch wood! Hope you feel better soon, Sal.

ooh, sorry about your pain Sal :o( Sending hugs your way.

Thanks so much for the comment you left on my blog, I really appreciate it. I don't have body crises toooo often (try to ignore it mostly!) but when I do, I REALLY do! And they usually occur in changing rooms.

Anyway, I won't go on and on about it :o)

Feel better soon. xxx

Ouch, hope you feel much better soon! Definitely get to an osteopath/physio if you can. I've had trouble with pressure on the sciatic nerve on and off for a couple of years, the physio treatment coupled with a simple back stretch exercise sorted it out.

I suffered with a bad back for years...then for some reason I stopped using two pillows and just used one. End of bad back....
Hard luck...back pain is one of the worst. Hope you get better soon.

I'm over weight too & had to see a Chiropractor recently as I was in horrendous pain with my back.

My 7th rib was out of place & half an hour later I walked out with everything back in it's rightful place.

Just do it - you can always do situps or whatever when your back is sorted.

Yep, I'm also horendously overweight. This is waht gives me some of teh problems I have, beyong teh vertebra not quite sitting right... and they sorted me just fine.

So, you can always bet they have treated someone larger! ;-)

I hope that you are feeling better. Back pain suqs.
