just a little venting

Feb 20, 2015 6:35 PM

Since every day I have pain somewhere thought my body I have tried helping out around the house and such on better days when I have the energy. So today I decided to fix the one toilet that needed resealed. Everything was going fine til I was tightening the bolts back up. I didn't even think I twisted or anything but something sent pain all through my lower back and hips and now for the last 4 hours have not been able to hardly move. What makes it even better my tramadol is not even touching this pain. So maybe venting will help a bit. Probably not but thanks for listening....

Hi jays77, I am sorry you are in so much pain! And all just for trying to do a little " catch up" around the house! I decided I was feeling OK earlier today so I thought I'd clean the fish tank and bathtub...well got thru the fish tank but pain has been shooting up and down my arm since I tackled the bathtub..so I guess we will both try a little venting. Hope you feel better!

JayS77, I hate that when it happens. It's like we forget about the limitations we have and try to be superhuman. Get rest, as much as possible. Ice if you think its pulled muscles, heat if not. Massage ointment might help too. Praying it will pass soon!

I'm so sorry, JayS77. I know what you mean. I had a delivery today and while waiting I was cleaning, bending, moving furniture out of the way, etc... There'r not enough drugs on the planet to help me right now. (Going to bed soon hoping I can get some sleep). Take care of yourself and I pray the pain eases off to a tolerable level.
