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.
