I am 6' 7" so I am always doing my best to treat my back carefully when I do heavy lifting.
Still, "stuff" happens from time to time and I have been nearly incapacitated by the pain.
Get better soon!
Thanks for your concern, GearNut. I'm off to the doctor; I had this exact symptom earlier this year. My best crutch is a rolling chair; I feel absolutely no pain pushing it around. Next best thing is a 6-foot wooden pole(staff).
I need time, and painkillers. On a scale of 1-10, it's 0 when sitting and sleeping, 4 when tossing and turning, and intermittent spasms of 7 when walking.
