Curly's turn on the injury couch

Grrr, my herniated disc has decided to "pop". I tried to go for my run this morning anyway, sometimes exercise will "put it back in place", but couldn't get my breath, as the problem I have with the disc, along with scoliosis (curvature), causes my diaphragm to constrict...just when it was all going so well too....

Hope it sorts itself out soon, sometimes i can be "crooked" for weeks...there is a new osteopath opened at the end of my street, I might try them in a couple of days if it doesn't get better. At least I have some very strong prescription drugs from the French Doctor, they are not available in England. I'm not sure if they help or not, but I don't much care about anything after I've taken them! Please excuse any silly things I might say over the next few days!

  • I totally misread the title and expected a very different post.

    I thought the title was 'Curly's turn on the injury coach'!!

    I really hope you are feeling better soon, but take it easy, you really don't want to mess around when it comes to your back.

  • Ha ha ouch! Don't make me laugh, it hurts! No turning on any coach's for me ATM!

  • Oh no! Sorry to hear that. Here's hoping you won't be out too long. Good luck ;)

  • Ooooooo, you poor thing Curly. Gentle hugs winging their way over to you.
