Got up sunday morining about 5:30 went at it til about 12:30 when i decided i had a enough i still had to go to work that night anyway. My back was killing me i went to work anyway should have stayed home, about 2:30 am i took a half a night vac, went to the er got good insurance didnt cost me a dime, got 2shots and some muscle relaxers and more pain pills that doc hooked me up.

Backs nothing to mess with. Friend pushed himself when his was hurting and now has a slipped disc. He's been trying to get in back in place now for 2 years. Good luck with it.

Yea dont over work it. I have scoliosis and have steel rods in my back and screws. I have learned my limits to what I can pick up and other stuff. All I can say is if I dont use my legs to pick up and bend over it will bring tears to my eyes with pain trying to lift heavy stuff...

be very careful with the pain killer, use ibuprofen and a chiropractor, the ibuprofen will help keep swelling down and the pain will tell you how fare you can push it as you recover. I've seen co-workers do the pain killer thing and they kept re injuring their back. I've done it this way a few times and am usually at 80% within 4-5days.
