Weird, Wasted Day

This morning I came out of the bathroom, turned slightly, and WHO IN THE HECK JUST SUCKER PUNCHED ME IN THE BACK!?!?!?!??! I could hardly move, I was doubled over and I could hardly breathe. Laura rubbed it down a little and I struggled into work. I made it through the morning but ended up having a massage and a chiropractic adjustment along with 600 mg ibuprofen and a cyclobenzaprine (flexoril). The flexoril kicked in and I had to sleep for a bit. I missed a couple hours of work and I'm still kind of miserable. So miserable that I didn't go riding on the first 60 degree day of the year (other than commuting).

I don't know how to explain it other than I hurt like you would not believe. Sitting too long, reaching too fast, simple routine tasks all hurt terribly. Tomorrow I'm supposed to run a shoulder camera for the NCAA Division II Women's Regional tourney in the dome. We will see about that. It's all going to depend on the magic touches of my wonderful massage therapist tonight.

In other noise, Angela Olson from South Dakota Safe Routes to School is coming to town in a half hour to meet with a bunch of us. I informed the city about the opportunity and they jumped at it and invited her down. I'm impressed that the city responded so quickly to get the ball rolling. More on that meeting in my next post I'm sure.

Man, I had something similar once, just walking along and bam, my back locked up, dropped me to the ground and I couldn't move, I had to lay there like 30 minutes, thought I was going to have to have medics come pick me up and haul me in, it was weird. Just got some really good muscle relaxers and I was good to go. Hope yours goes away quickly!

Hey, Dude - nothing against the healers in your life, but is the pain still with you? Have you seen an MD? You didn't say where it was: up, middle, flank. I'm thinking, kidney stones, I'm thinking all sorts of things. How's the pain now?

Pretty much gone already. Just a weird twisting or something. I think I'll make it :-)
