Until this year, I had never really suffered back related issues. Over the past two weeks I’ve come to sympathise with those that also suffer. I’m assured by my osteopath that I shouldn’t worry. All I have is some inflammation in the lower back. I’m using an ice pack and doing some stretching. It’s not my back that hurts so much as the sciatic nerve. Boy does it hurt when I get out of a chair! I’m sure it will sort itself out over time, but it does kind of limit me in the meantime. I was hoping to do something in early December, but I think that is unlikely now.
