Oh, The Pain!

It's been such a painful day at work today and I mean that literally. Every step I take sends jolts of pain shooting up my back. I have this terrible, well not really terrible to the point of paralysis or anything like that but it's still a darn painful back ache. And the worse part is about this back ache is I didn't even do any hard or laborious work to deserve this pain.

I woke up this morning with this shooting pain down my lower back. I put it down to the usual early morning aches I always feel. The signs of old age creeping up on you. I thought maybe once I have my bath and warm up a little the pain will slowly ease away like it normally does.

Then I got caught in a traffic jam this morning (which is a rare case these days) and since I drive a manual car, I had to keep on depressing the clutch and changing gears constantly. It was then that I realized the pain was still there. Every press of the clucth and changing of the gears brought about some kind of pain from the lower back. Ok, this is not my normal early morning aches anymore.

The pain just kept on getting getting worse as the day wore on that it went from an irritating and annoying throb to a more constant pain. Every step I took elicited a groan, every press of the keyboard brought about a grunt, every turn of my body made my face grimace. Damn, I hope this pain goes away soon and not get any worse.

I don't even remember what I did that could have made my back hurt like this. All I did last night before sleeping was to blog for a bit, then read my book in bed and finally called it a day. I suppose I may have twisted my back or something while sleeping. I do tend to sleep in weird kinds of positions that defy logic at times ... LOL!

I guess I'm not going to be able to help wifey out with the removal of those patio furniture covers this evening when I get home. She's probably going to have to do it all by herself. In fact, she's probably going to be having to do most of the work in the house, at least until my back heals which might just take months you know honey ... LOL! At least this back pain gives me a pretty good excuse to laze around more ... hahaha!

I think I'd better log off now and go sit down quietly somewhere cos sitting in front of the PC and blogging is not helping my back at all.

  4. Swimming helps back aches so the doctors says. It exercises the back, so it is good to go swimming often.

  22. Wow! Mariuca drops 900 cards a day? I think you can learn from her how come she does not develop back pain. Maybe something to do with her cats! haha!

    Wait! You dropped 600 cards? Crazy! I don't have time for that. Just drop a measly 30 cards or less a day. Some days, it's 0 cards. LOL!

    Ask your lovely wife to do a back massage for you lah. Or pay a lovely girl to massage for you if your wife refuses. Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hmmm....u must slept in one position the whole nite kan? Thats why you are having a back ache now...

    ReplyDelete
  24. You woke up in the wrong side of the bed maybe, maybe not cos you didn't have bad moods. Or too much work in front of the computer, hehee! You need physical activity to fight the pains of old age. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. You need to rest by the sound of it. But I suspect you'll be back soon. I wish your aches better.

    ReplyDelete
