So when I was in 5th grade I told my friends I could escape a full Nelson. So a friend slapped one on me. In my attempt to escape I landed on my head with my buddy still having the Nelson locked on me.
The result? For 30 seconds I was literally paralyzed. For weeks after that I couldn't run. When I tried to it was as if my legs wouldn't respond right and I would fall.
At 15 I was squatting incorrectly with the barbell literally on my C4. Yeah...stupid. Anyway, while squatting I felt a sharp pain in my neck. For months my right arm was like dead weight at times. Especially if I was running...it would just go limp.
At 19 I was squatting 415. Even though I looked fairly skinny. Anyway, as I was going down I felt a "push" in my lower back. As if something popped out in my spine.
I didn't have any pain so I moved on. Then at work as I was helping the guys stack pool table cabinets the combo of the weight of the cabinet, and the twisting gave me a stabbing pain in mymlower back.
My left leg would feel deadened. I was in severe pain. I got an MRI and it turned out I tore my lumbar muscle a bit, and bulged the lumbar discs.
Well, for years I struggled with neck and low back pain. In fact when my neck muscles would spasm badly I would have to lay on the floor, and not be able to be.moved.
But I was young. Big deal. And I always kept in good shape. Now I'm 41 and haven't been as active as I was 5 years ago. I've had low testosterone issues, low thyroid issues, constant fatigue and depression.
I've always had the depression and fatigue a little, but it's gotten so bad in the past years that doctors think I have fibromyalgia.
My question is....will the reverse hyper help my.lower discs issues? Is there anything I can do for pinched nerve in my neck? By the way...a chiropractor pushed down on my head to check if I had a pinch, and it hurt like hell!
I've thinking that if I can better the lower back and neck issues I might be able to get my life back. I'm only 41 but I feel old and used up. Just slight movement causes me to pant. I try to exercise but I get frustrated and lose hope.
