    Work Injury

    OUT OF SERVICE
    I am down to 10 mile trips, like 20 miles a week.
    I hurt my back and its all I can do till better.
    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.
    No worries

    I did the same type of thing to my back 20+ years ago. Odd thing to me are the things that cause it to go out since then. I lift a lot of heavy things both at work and at home but that never does it. It's always something simple like sitting on the couch and reaching for a drink on the table or getting down on my knees to get the shoe that somehow ended up inder the bed. I guess what I'm getting at is how impossible it is to prevent throwing my back out when I have no idea what little thing is going to cause it next.

    I'm in the same club. I broke a vertebrae about two years ago and now I have "pain days" from time to time. Never can tell what will set it off. Last time I opened the door to my office and nearly fell down from the pain.
    I wanna ride!

    I recently slipped a disk in my back (I'm only 32, that's not supposed to happen yet!). Hurt like the dickens, wasn't able to get out of bed, sit up, etc. I finally got a bunch of excersises from my doc (and my wife, who happens to be a doc ), that assisted quite a bit.

    Just to be sure, I went and got a stem extender for my bike. It only raised the handle bars a inch and a half, but the difference on my back is amazing.
