Back Pain Sucks!

A couple of weeks ago I was at the farm mowing. I jumped off the mower and grabbed a bench I keep on the gun range. Forgot how heavy it is - lifted and it twisted. Now I have a bad disc.
Hopefully it will heal without any drama. I am just hanging around the house irritating the hell out of my wife. She keeps finding errands to run. Anything to get away.
The bad part is I have a new AR to shoot!

I hurt my back on Thursday and it didn't get better til Monday. Best part, I couldn't take off from my (blue collar) work and had a hard deadline on Tuesday at 5pm.


Anyway, I was standing around looking out a window and BAM! I don't know what the hell happened. You don't realize how much you use your back til you hurt it.

I have "thrown my back out" several times over the years. Takes longer to heal now that I am old.
If it's not well enough for me to drive by next week my buddy is going to drive me down to the farm so I can shoot my new gun. Of course I will have to supply him with BBQ, beer and ammo.

Screwed mine up in 1983 when I grabbed what I thought was a 120 lb injection mold off the rack.
When the full weight hit me I stumbled and nearly feel.
Later my back went to killing me so went to the hospital.
Partly crushed disc. The workman's comp people came out and weighed the mold -265lbs dead weight.
Made the company post all kinds of signage;made them buy a motorized lift truck made for mold changing.
I lived with back pain all my adult life.
On and off the pain meds as needs.
They can fix it but I for one am not letting the cut on my back till I have no other choices.
I have had to close friends have back surgery and both came out worse than they were when they went in.
I feel ya pain!

Madmo - my back pain is nothing compared to what you have to live with. Still - I will continue to whine like the cupcake I am.:1zhelp:
Sorry to hear about your problem.
Being bored, I keep buying gun stuff off the internet. Going to go broke if I don't get out of the house soon!

I know how ya feel but after a while you kinda get numb to it because it's just one of those things you learn to live with and you learn how to work around it.
I'm pretty active and try to stay that way. When I spend to much time lazing around; when I start back to being active it hurts real bad for days. So I just try not slow down.
I'd whine but no body listens - LOL!!!!

Like one of my best friends is always saying to his youngest son who whines about everything.
"You will find sympathy in the dictionary between shit and sweat, so get to it boy" - ROFLMAO!!!

Speaking of shit and sweat, my back felt much better when I was outside working and sweating my butt off. When I got back to the air conditioned portion of the job, it got stiff. Sitting at my computer or on the couch watching tv made my back feel 10x worse.


I'm glad my back is feeling better, lol.

Yeah that's kinda how I am.
Some time though I over do it and I have have to just deal with it.
Here lately that's been the norm.

I had several slipped discs in my lower back during my early teenage years. After years of going to the chiropractor, I haven't really had any problems for awhile. I'll say this much, slipped discs suck! One time one of them shifted just right and pinched a nerve so bad that, as I was walking around at home, I instantaneously collapsed on the ground and had to use my arms to crawl back into bed as it hurt that bad. ;)
