So I have done the searches, read the threads, talked, complained and helped. All in the name over lower back pain.
I think there should be a thread where we can all come and read, talk, complain and get some help.
(This isn't meant to replace a trip to the hospital/doctors office)
I'll start a bit by giving my pain history.
June 2007: Done while deadlifting, rounded lumbar spine. That injury took me out of the game for a few months.
December 2007: Picking up 10lb puppy. Another month off.
March 2008: Done while stiff legged deadlifting. After not feeling ANY pain since about a week after Dec 07 injury; I felt it was time to progress. Guess not.
June 08: went to cressey performance, got my shit back on track.
Day after thanksgiving 08: slight twinge in same area of lower back after hitting a recent PR in deadlifting.
I plan on going to the ER tomorrow. For about 3 weeks I"ve gotten sharp pains down my hip/butt/legs and have just shrugged it off. Dumb. I know.
Will report more tomorrow; hopefully I get an MRI. Last time I went to the ER they gave me an xray (retards) and pain meds.
