That sounds very, very painful.
But what if we don't like the "change?" Sorry. Must be a character flaw. I can't go with that. Cobain changed the music world and I despise his music. And the rap and hip hop stuff. Nope! So what if the change is for the worse?
I pretty much think you can let go of that. The man’s dead.
You can hire me as a life coach for starters.
Ok, edited. I was watching a ballgame and didn't realize I put the "him" in there.
I like Dave Grohl. Does that count?
Oh man, sorry to hear! I managed to mess up my back moving a composter around the yard just before I went out of town, made the whole trip rather miserable. Similar thing to yours, it was ok for a couple of days, then out of nowhere, BAM, it starts giving me grief. No where near as bad as yours though. I hope you can at least find a not-quite-so-painful position to sit or lay in, that's the worst part!
The only think I could recommend is getting one of these ergo strandberg guitars while you are recovering, they weight next to nothing and afford a bunch of different positions you can sit with them. The only possible problem is the necks are a bit odd. Certain types of playing doesn't really jibe with them.
I hope you have a speedy recovery!
I have totally been there many times over the past 25 years. I’m sorry you are dealing with this! I’ve gotten better in recent years, but not over the past month since I’m way off my routine.
Key for me (ymmv) is the following:
Cardio for 20-40min - all about getting the blood flowing
Then stretching and core exercises (bridges, ab crunches, dead bugs)
Then I can think about either lifting or things like moving furniture.
If I don’t do these things regularly (5 days a week)
My hamstrings get tight
My calves get tight
My glutes get tight
My lower back gets tight
My back becomes a time bomb
Often I’m ok moving/lifting heavy things at first. It’s the aftermath that gets me, typically a day or two later depending on my hydration level. Seizes up like a bolt of lightning and I can barely stand, let alone walk. Pop ibuprofen and sit on the icepack. Go to the chiropractor for another treatment cycle.
Old joke. I have a great Chiropractor- I’ve been going to them for years!
It’s been a slog. Pain, pressure, dizziness and on bad days nausea. I’ve had symptoms every waking moment since Nov 2017. Started a new medication (my third) a couple weeks ago, just approved last month so fingers crossed. Hope to see some tangible improvement in a few months.
Every day better!
Oh, wow, ouch. I hope it works! Best of wishes!
Thanks, guys! It’s improving little by little. I might try to play today once I get all stretched, etc. It’s Father’s Day, after all!
PS - Happy Father’s Day to all dads.
In your situation, I would start with the Tonare.
That’s what my wife suggested, too. I’m going to take that excellent advice!
I now feel like a Good Samaritan taking that HXDA off your hands, or back.
I don’t play out, so only trouble was bring it home and then shipping it out.
Glad it went to a good home!
When your back starts to crumble, let me know and pay it forward.
