Bad Back

My back is just a screwed up mess I have everything from arthritis to a herniated disc Just this past week my back went out just picking up a football the wrong way I have been on Predisone muscle relaxants and pain meds The doctor said I had sprained my back I didn’t know you could sprain your back I guess I learned something new Now I am on the mend My back is doing better but it still stiffens up and hurts when I do too much stuff I feel like an old woman and I am not even 40 yet I feel like my body is rejecting me but such is life

Back is bad. I'm 71, Julie, and know it is no fun. I would be crawling around on the floor, unable to stand if it were not for an Inversion Board I have. I hang upside down (do the bat) every morning for a few minutes and it does wonders. Ask your doctor if he thinks it would help you. Blessings my friend!

Julie I can understand how that feels. I have experienced it with back and neck. It is nice to see you posting poetry. It can often help get the mind off physical pain. Take care :)
