Life throws us curves! As I reached into my back seat, at the back door, no twisting, no extreme reach, my back did it again and tweaked right into an inflammation, this one in my thoracic and lumbar regions, early this morning, getting to the gym. I exercised, being careful not to tweak it, but it was too late. I've struggled with the pain all day. I can stand almost upright, which is better than it usually is when this happens, and I can walk instead of shuffle. Last time, right right before my head surgery about 20 months ago, i crawled for 2 days. I live with a pain level of 3 on a constant basis, never less. I'm at a 7 when I'm laying or sitting still. 8 when I move. So if I have this pain tomorrow, after taking my meds, going to bed early, and laying on ice for an hour or so tonight, I'll be staying home. I won't be exercising tomorrow. Do an extra squat for me!
