Oh My Aching Back...

Every few months it happens....I bend the wrong way and instantly I know what I've done. At that point, however, there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. It's too late. I've aggravated my sacroiliac and my sacroiliitis is going to flare up again. Well, that's exactly what happened this past Wednesday. All I did was pick up a small bag of groceries out of the back of my MDX and that's all it took. I've been down in my back ever since. This has happened enough that I know what to do. I have a ready supply of the necessary anti-inflammatory medications and Flexaril on hand. Luckily this time it wasn't bad enough to warrant a trip to the doctor's office for a joint injection. Plenty of rest and inactivity did the trick this time, thank goodness. My husband is a trooper when this happens. He takes good care of me and may even enjoy being "Mr. Mom" (for the first day or so anyway). Although the heating pad is still my best friend, I am on the mend at this point!
