So, I finally went to the doctor

I just can not take the pain anymore.  The past few days have been very difficult - since I have never had back issues before.  And today, when my back hurt just sitting in the car, I knew I could not wait any longer.

So, here is the discussion I had with my body as I was heading back into town today:
Me:  So, body, what have we done different in the past few days to injure my back?
Body:  Well, we did just do a marathon
Me:  Did you forget that we trained properly for it?
Body:  Good point.  Lets look at your diet.
Me:  Well, I did treat myself to a fast food burger on TUESDAY. 
Body:  And on WEDNESDAY your back started to bother you!
Me:  SO THE FAST FOOD CAUSED THE PAIN.

Problem solved.  No more fast food for me.


I know that sounds crazy - but that worked for me when I had strep throat years ago.  And I didn't eat fast food for over two years.  :) 

I told this to the doctor and he thought I was weird.    But he just thinks I somehow strained my back and gave me some meds.  Hopefully I'll be back to normal with in a week!

Pfft, wrong!

Bummer! Hope the meds kick in and give you some relief.

Do you have a deep tissue massage person? They hurt like heck, but they usually do the trick and relieve that bitter pain.

Hahahaha. That must have been quite a burger ;)

In all seriousness, hope the back heals up soon.

I read somewhere that too much wine could also be the culprit.... nah, just kidding.
Welcome to old age?? God, I hope not...
Hey, maybe not enough wine? Yeh, that's it. Have one for me..

I hear ya... I can't eat like 99% of any fast food. It's fast food in, something BAD comes out. It's like my body punishes me for giving it something so bad lol.
