Crooked lady, with the crooked walk

All I can say is ow.

I went to the gym last night. Ended up on a treadmill. It was ok, but it didn't feel "right". It felt like it was getting stuck and not moving fast enough. I think the belt was sticking or something cause it was squeaking. I think I felt a little twinge, but nothing painful, in my back as well. So I stopped after 5 minutes because i saw an elliptical machine open up.

So I get on the elliptical for 25 minutes and I go home. Nothing major just a half hour work out. I did notice the twinge again on my way out of the car, but I didn't think much of it because it was snowing and I wanted to get in the house as soon as possible.

So I did my usual, drop the bag, let the dog out, let the dog in, grab a snack, and sit on the couch to chill before my shower.

After a half hour or so I decide to go shower and this is where it all gets owwy. Shooting pain in my back just below the middle. I couldn't stand up straight without pain. So I thought I would take a bath to soak.
Then I iced it for a bit and then heating pad. By 10 I really couldn't stand up straight and I hobbled upstairs to take Tylenol PM and into bed I crashed.

Thank god it hurts less this morning. But it still hurts. I really don't know what I did and if I did I would like to know what it was so I can avoid doing it in the future.

Too easy. Quit exercise.

Hope you're back gets better, I suffer with mine and sometimes something as simple as a sneeze can put it out.

See a physio for examples of exercises that strengthen it to make you more resistant. I know them but alas forget to do them until I get a twinge by which point it's usually too late.
