bah

I twisted my back and it hurts to stay for long in any kind of position that allows comfortable keyboarding. No, I don't know for sure how I hurt my back, but I'm quickly discovering which chairs have good lumbar support -- and which don't. Can thisyear be over?

Surely a virtual hug won't hurt. I have had back problems. I truly feel for you, Mark. OUCH. I wish I could make the pain go away! Not able to write...eesh!

Aw, thanks for the hug! It's way down in the lower back, which makes a person realize really quickly how much that area counts in both sitting and moving around. It even hurts to lay down -- I have to lay on my side with a large pillow between my knees, and then I'm okay for a couple of hours. Usually my back pain is in the mid thorasic area, which I'm discovering isn't nearly as bad.

I'm a little better now -- I can walk without holding onto anything. It's a slow process, though!

Ow. Man, backaches are the worst. I hope you feel better quickly.

I used to think sore throats were the worst -- I certainly thought that last week. But I've changed my mind!

So do I, thanks. My chiropracter's hard at work on it, and meanwhile there's the Doan's Pill and IcyHot.

Oh crap!!! I hope you can feel better soon and take some pills to help you get there. :(

Perfect icon!

Nothing prescription, but I've got Doan's Pills, Icy Hot (very uncomfortable, but it works) and a cold water bottle ... I can get around now, some.

Every year I hope for a better next one -- but I've got to say, this one has had several low points! Not even counting no full season of The Doctor!

Oh - ouch! Not being able to sit comfortably is certainly no fun for an internet geek! If it doesn't ease soon get some physio.

My chiropractor's working on it, but a certain amount of just plain healing is needed, and that's slow going with back injuries. I've got my Doan's Pills, Icy Hot and cold water bottle, and I'm getting better little by little -- but I can only sit still for so long!

Ouch! You poor thing! Paracetemol and gentle stretching!

Paracetemol ...?

*googles madly*

Oh! acetaminophen! That's one of the main ingredients in the back pain medicine I've been taking, and it's helping some. I'm not quite ready for the stretching right back, but probably I'll start tomorrow. Thanks!

*sips tea* I don't know if it eases the pain at all, but it helps!

perfect icon!

Sore backs no good! It makes you realise how every movement and every muscle in your body is directly tied to your back!

Boy, it sure does -- especially in the lower back. It's incredibly frustrating that I can't sit for long, *and* I can't actually accomplish anything while I'm up.

Ouch,lower back pain is among the worst. I hope you're feeling better soon (which can't be soon enough for you, I'm sure!). Here's some virtual chocolate and a gentle hug to go with the Doan's and IcyHot.

That virtual chocolate helped a lot! Not that the Doan's and IcyHot isn't good, too, but neither of those tastes worth a darn.
