Am I really THAT old??

When I worked in Orthopedics I would hear countless older patients say they threw their backs out putting pants on, adjusting their bra, sneezing. Yesterday all I did was get up out of the bed. Horrible pain since then. Tylenol and Motrin, heating pad, is only dulling the pain.

WTF...I am one step away from geriatric!

BTW, I hike, swim, play tennis, kayak and walk 4-5 miles a day. But hey, I better be careful getting out of bed!

Really? That had tk be painful. The back is such a tricky damn thing! I can carry my kayak and paddle with a hiking pack, about 250 lbs, but I can't get out of bed. Lol

That stinks. You should go get a massage and see if that helps.

I'm feeling old this morning too. I got a wee bit tipsy last night and it's biting me in the ass.

I threw mine out doing laundry several months ago! According to my PT, it is actually fairly common as we tend to twist in ways our backs are not meant to twist. I'm very active as well, but apparently, switching laundry from one machine to the other is dangerous. LOL

We have a hot tub, I know that would help but I can't get in the same thing right now. I can't lift my legs. Haha

Oh no, I didn't think about that. I will be careful from now on when doing laundry! Lol
