Me? No. Thank goodness... but my DH is having troubles so badly that he's saying today that if he's still feeling the way he is right now, he wants me to take him to the hospital. NOT GOOD. He's got lower back trouble in general, but he hasn't been to a chiropractor in at least 2 years, and predictably he's getting worse and worse. Then Saturday he decided to help the landscapers with shoveling and leveling gravel in our soon-to-be-patio site... knowing all along it was going to aggravate his back... and yep, yesterday he was laid up all day in excruciating pain. I went and bought an exercise ball for him to stretch out, as well as a lumbar supporting pillow for him to lean against, which he slumped over and basically rendered it useless.... but what else to do?
Looks like today is going to be search-for-a-chiropractor day. I just hope he doesn't further injure himself at work - yep, the lughead went to work when he can barely walk - men!
Anyway, if you have any tips on relieving back pain, please post a comment here. I'm interested in any tips anyone has to offer beyond cold packs, warm packs, pain relievers and the stuff I already tried. I'm open to any suggestions!
