Last Tuesday I overdid CrossFit and seriously hurt my back. Wow, did I. When I woke the following morning I could barely walk it hurt so bad. So I hobbled six blocks to my doctor’s office and made my appointment. That was a hell walk if ever there was one.
Turns out I just had a severe lower back muscle spasm which usually happens when a previous injury just over reacts so my entire lower back wasn’t moving and was completely locked up. My posture was close to someone with severe scoliosis, slightly cocked to one side and not upright at all.
So they prescribed Skelaxin (muscle relaxer) and Indomethacin (anti-inflamitory) for the pain. Needless to say I had to take that Wednesday off of work. I couldn’t focus on anything and was falling asleep at my desk because of the drowsiness.
Today is probably the first day where my back is finally feeling better. Only one side of my back (previously injured a few months ago) still hurts a bit so I’m still taking it pretty easy. Now it’s time to get some work done. At least I’m not in severe pain anymore so Keep Calm and Chive On!
