Nope, you're not alone. I had no business having another baby at 40 and when she was still in her carseat I turned while carrying it and sprained my back real good. I was so scared because nothing like that had ever happened before. I still have lingering issues with my sciatic nerve because of it. With age comes wisdom, but unfortunately aches and pains too. Speedy recovery to you!
I'm getting to the point where it's easier to identify the body parts that DON'T hurt rather than the ones that do!
Poor hobbled blogger. A few weeks ago, I pulled a muscle in my back. Don't ask me how; I don't regularly engage in activities that ask a lot of my muscles. Just one day, I sat up and it damn near killed me. I was fine after some painkillers and muscle relaxers, but I still don't know how it happened. Feel better soon!
I'm 54 year old grandmother of two. Sometimes, being able to rise from the bed in the morning is my biggest challenge of the day.
I carried my books in a backpack/shoulder bag over my left shoulder all through college and law school... that shoulder hates me now. oy.
I started training for a marathon, third run with the group, I badly did something to my knee, and I couldn't walk properly for a good month. Fast forward to 4 months later, with injury recovery, tried to train for a 10 miler, and again my knee gave out on me. I am only 27 and I am already feeling like I'm trapped in an aging body. I can't even sleep on a certain side of my body, without feeling achy in the mornings now. I can't run like I used to in high school injury free and no worries of aches and pains. heck in college I used to stay up all night, then go for a 6 am run almost every morning. Those days are lonngg gone. ha.
When I turned 40 I sprained my neck... while... sleeping. *facepalm*
Nope. I ache every morning when I get up. It just never goes away. Hope yours gets better!
I blame year s of pretzel-like contorting to accommodate two kids in various beds thorughout the night. It is only surprising this doesn't happen more often to all of us! Feel better.
My back is fine - it's my innards that started going to hell last years. This year, knock on wood, all is well.
a few weeks ago, i SNIFFLED wrong and threw something out in my back so bad that i had debilitating spasms for days, if that gives you a laugh and makes you feel a little better! :)
