Hurt My Lower Back – I Think I Over Did It With My Exercise

Today I have just been taking it easy. I woke up this morning with excruciating back pain, and when I stand up the back pain goes away and when I sit down, it acts up. I have just been getting much needed rest today and sleeping it off. I didn’t take any medication for it yet, but I will be and I will be heading to my doctor. I think I over did it with my exercising and I pulled a muscle or something in my lower back. The pain is going all the way to my toes, but when I stand up, the pain goes away. It is so strange, but I better get better soon. I have my trips coming up within the next few weeks and I need to get better so as I can sit comfortably on my flights and Hold my bags and enjoy my trip. I won’t be able to enjoy my trips if I am feeling like this. I need to get better and quick. Now I delayed myself in my exercising and it totally messed it up for me. I guess I learned my lesson to never over do it and go gradually and not hurt myself. I don’t stretch enough before exercise and that is also the factor. I guess I am my own worst enemy lol. Well, time to take it easy this week and just go with the flow, and do stretches in the morning. I never knew I had these muscles. Well, I am going to keep it short and sweet today and go rest more.

  1. You have to be so careful with exercising, damaging or pulling a muscle is very painful and will take time to heal, I overdid pulling exercises and hurt my shoulder it is now almost two months the pain is still thhere reminding me its presence each time of wrong movement, it is better now but slow recovery…in other words be careful and see a doctor and avoid lifting heavy stuff for now… hot shower and Bengay time.. get well soon and have a good time :)

  2. Been there, done that. Feel better soon. I recommend that you do see your doctor. Please take it easy, even though you want to stay consistent with your exercise. That kind of pain is horrible, I know, and it’s not worth overdoing. You have a goal — your trips — and your body needs time to recoup. Take good care of yourself.

  3. Hey Talin, feel better. Also, just keep in mind, often a lower back injury is the result of weak abdominal and transverses muscles. So when you are feeling better it might be a good thing to focus on core work.
