This picture pretty well describes how my back feels. I am seriously thinking of calling the doctor and having him prescribe PT. It has mainly hurt in the lower part but now is hurting in the middle back as well. It makes my legs feel like lead weights.
I know some will say go to the chiropractor but I can't. I have weak joints and bones and last time I went to one, my hip collapsed so can not chance my other hip going out as well. A massage helps but know I mainly need to strengthen my core and abs to give this weak back extra support. I am resorting to my back brace and hate how it constricts me but it is either that or more pain. I only take my pain meds at night as don't like the outer space feeling I get in the daytime with them.
I'm having trouble getting my 30 minutes of walk time in. I'm having to do it in 10 minute increments and the high humidity we have right now doesn't help either. Sorry for moaning. I usually don't complain but think this pain is finally getting to me.
I will give it a couple more days before calling the doctor.
