Torn muscles
« on: December 12, 2014, 10:19:57 AM »
I reached to grab something yesterday and tore the muscles in my lower back, very painful and debilitating. Pain killers, heat packs and plenty of bed rest are in order for a few days, damn it.  >:(

Sorry to hear that Des. Mobic and Voltaren are the prescribed muscle relaxants my doctor prescribed and they work well, especially Mobic which works well on strained muscles.

Any truth to the rumour you strained your back lifting a new Wingnut Wings Felixstowe kit? :)

Get well soon!

cheers

Used to happen too frequently to me, even when young. Last year my physical therapist found that my pelvis is abnormally high inhibiting my lower spine from bending naturally as it should. I have had to learn to bend more withmy legs than back, which has helped immensely. When I can remember. Hard to rewire parts of the brain after seventy two years.

Take it easy and get healed. You got modeling to do, Pilgrim.

Thanks for the comments and the advice, the Voltaren works really well in relieving the pain and allows limited movement, but I can't take the mobic due to my heart condition. A few days and all will be well again, I hope.
