Cherry Blossoms and Back Pains…

One wouldn’t think that those two things have anything to do with one another, but both have been a part of my everyday as of late.

The trees are in full bloom now and I see them while driving around town and walking with the dog around the neighborhood.  Because the temps this spring have been SO crazy, we’re enjoying the blossoms now instead of late March.

And the back pains… I don’t know what I did, whether it was a pulled muscle during a walk with the dog or as a result of doing some spring cleaning around the house (yes, my mother would be shocked!! LOL).  Anyway, my lower back (right side) has been aching something terrible, to the point that it was hard to get to sleep the other night.  (Perhaps another shocker for my mom because I can fall asleep by the time you count to three!) 🙂

Sitting in the computer chair was the worst for a while, so I’ve been away from blogging.  Did try using the laptop in bed to write a post, but the pain didn’t ease up that way either.

Funny thing is during my bout with pain, I thought how wonderful it would be to think out my thoughts and to have them automatically typed out in a post.  Yep, there’s probably an app out there somewhere which does exactly that, right? 🙂

So, does anyone out there have any advice on how to make the pain go away?

    Chiropractor, or acupuncture would be my first two choices. After that – they will probably tell you what it is and stretching may be all you need. Or some Salon Pas! 😉

      Have been doing a lot of stretching… and, yep, have been using LOTS of Salon Pasu (or similar products). I think they’ve helped the most actually! 🙂

    Awww. Hope you are doing better now! I have noticed when I walk my crazy dog around town, I am so sore at night! They pull you in the most awkward manners!
