My Back

I have a love/hate relationship with my back.  I love it when it causes me no pain and functions as it should.  But hate it when the opposite occurs.

I have severe degenerative disc disease.  This is one of my MRIs.

lumbar spine

I was having quite a bit of nerve pain with it which has subsided.  But recently I have been having muscle pain and spasms.  It may have started with hoeing and planting in the garden or maybe with moving sacks of animal feed.  I had been taking good care of it, going to a chiropractor and massage therapist, taking hot bathes and doing stretches, and trying to be careful with my posture and lifting (although I had slacked off on my PT exercises).  Despite all of this, my back is now punishing me and not letting me do what I want.  Grrrr!

    I’m so sorry, Donna. I’ve had some back issues over the years, and it’s the pits. 😦
