Bad thing is riding makes it feel better, riding in the POS F550 Truck is the worst.
So I will not be saying much for a while.
When I was about 25, I squatted to reach an item at a department store bottom shelf. I could not straighten back out. I had to have a store employee call my family to pick me up and take me home. I took several days to heal from pain and immobility. Ever since then, my back gets messed up once in a while. Ibuprofen and rest usually clears it up in a couple of days.
But one morning, I hurt my back getting ready to ride my bike to work. All I was doing was brushing my teeth, and I coughed while leaning over, and my back went out again. Of course, I rode to work anyway...
While on the bike, I felt fine. When I tried to walk or sit, I was in great pain.
From now on, I stay home.
