My eating yesterday was better. It wasn’t perfect though. I started off strong with a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch and Almond Breeze (Yum).
Then last night we decided to go pick up season 2 and 3 of CSI. While standing in the store to check out, I turned to herd my kids to the door and felt a horrible pain in my back. I have never had pain like this before. Not only was the pain in my lower back, but I had shooting pains down both of my legs that seemed to radiate all the way to my toes. In fact, the pain was so intense and sudden, I almost passed out.
I finally made it out to the car. I thought once I sat down and let my back rest for a few minutes I would be ok. At this point my back was spasming and I still had shooting pains down my back. So when Chris suggested stir fry takeout, I agreed.
I think I did pretty good. I know stir fry isn’t the healthiest meal option, but I did try to eat more of the veggies than noodles.
This morning my back is still hurting. My hands are all tingly. It hurts to sit, stand, move, or lay down. I have never really had a backache before, I am not sure what to do.
Do you have any ideas about what this could be or what I can do to help the pain/spasms?
