O.K., since riding a lot more, (I mean a heck of a lot more) I have noticed something new and I don't know if I should be worried or not.
It is by no means a constant pain. It is hard to even describe it as "pain." It just doesn't quite feel good when I arch my back backward a little or arch it forwad a little. It hurts just a little. It is in the very lower back part about three fists up from the bottom of my back bone. You know when you rock forward a little and backward a little when making love? O.K. TMI (too much information). It is agravated more when I lean a little backward than forward. It is right in that small back area. I have never experienced this before. I never notice it WHEN riding the bike. Only when I arch forward and backward.
Could the bumping of the road be transferring up through the saddle and into my backbone and injuring a vertebre? Or is it just muscular from all the riding I've been doing? I ride bent over most of the time.
I don't really want to spend hundreds of dollars at my doctor's office to find out.
I hate to take time off from riding as that will really set me back.
I'm just curious if any of you experience this same "pain" or not.
