9/13/11 - Back Pain

Sep 13, 2011 - 0 comments

Edited: I awoke with no back pain today.  I haven't had any back pain during the time of my colitis flare-up, thank goodness!  I hate to say it, but those old people medical adjustable beds you see infomercials for (which they have in hospitals) actually did me some good.

However, I worked my first shift at Starbucks today since falling ill.  I ended the shift with definite aching and discomfort-- a tightness in my lower back and a stressful low-intensity tightness all the way up to my shoulders.  I took one of my oxycodones and have found some relief.

Must return to stretching in the coming days.
