So after my little backisode yesterday, I was hoping a good night’s sleep would be the key to feeling better. Well, that was a nice thought but didn’t quite work out that way I ended up still being in pain today so made an appointment to see the doctor to make sure it was not anything serious. After making me do some weird moves and explaining things, she determined it was just a muscular strain so nothing serious at all but still annoying! I am now taking some muscle relaxers and have some stretches to work on so hopefully this time next week, this will be a distance memory! I am seriously considering starting to see a chiropractor on a regular basis to hopefully avoid future back issues though…
Still not sure if I will be able to go to work tomorrow because it’s not always safe to drive on these meds but she said to see how I do. I am currently feeling a bit weird and my fingers seem to be unconnected to my brain as I keep typing words I am not meaning to type… oops!
I am still mourning the fact that I will not get to do my long run this weekend but hopefully I am at least feeling good enough for a long walk to loosen my muscles up. I am seriously going to go into exercise withdrawal… I can’t remember the last time I had two rest days in a row!!! Stir crazy! And hopefully the meds make me drowsy enough that I can still sleep at night So annoying!
Hopefully the next post I do will be a happy “I am running again” post instead of a “I am insanely jealous of every runner I drive past” type of post. So frustrated right now! But at the same time very thankful that it was nothing serious and also that work is exceptionally slow right now so I am not missed at all and would probably be sitting at my desk with nothing to do these two days anyways. So anyways, I’ll be sitting here, thinking happy back thoughts!!
Question: Anyone out there routinely visit a chiropractor? Thoughts on that?
