I Have a Bad Back

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 80 People

    I've always had a bad back myself

    and it's rather annoying being young and having this.. Well bad back hah. I can't really lift on to heavy of things anymore, I can't bend real fast-or often, and I can't take being jabbed or hit in the back... And one thing I can't stand is stupid people thinking I'm joking when...

    Take care of your back.

    Use proper lifting techniques. I first hurt mine in 2010. FYI, IT NEVER GETS BETTER. It only hurts less some days.

    Just Happened

    Haven't had a bad back for a few years. Last night I was kneeling down and something went pop. Its my back. I have always felt sorry for anyone with chronic back problems. I will be okay in about 4 days as my problem is muscular not spinal related. To all of you with persistent...

    I didn't think I had a bad back,

    but this morning I was bending down to scoop out a litter box under my basement stairway when I suddenly felt something shift to the left in my lower back. That was immediately followed by an audible pop and an intense shooting pain throughout my back. Because of course the most...

    My Spine Got On My Nerves.

    Ok so the title is pretty funny when it comes to this story. If you followed the cars hitting me experiences, then this is what happened after. I didn't think cars could do more damage, I went to get a full examination. MRI's, ct, x rays, physical, so on. It took about a...

    I'll never know exactly what I did,

    but I'm constantly living with the pain of a bad back. It was Halloween. 2006. I woke up so excited that it was my favorite holiday. That is, until I tried to get out of bed. Blinding pain. When I realized the pain wasn't going anywhere, I assumed I pulled a muscle. I took it...

    I have terrible back pain every day

    because of a complication from my pregnancy that is still unresolved. But because I have a six month old baby at home I keep putting myself into positions to keep hurting my back. There's just no other way and no way around it. I wear a brace a lot, but it doesn't help much. I...

    I Wish I Never Fell

    20Yrs ago I fell down a flight of stairs and it was the start of a whole lot of back problems for me. It was the way I fell. It was an old wartime house and the wall was at the base of the stairs so I threw myself backwards in order to catch myself. I twisted and landed on my...

    In November 2012 I hurt my back playing

    football. I should know I'm getting too old for it, but hey. Didn't help matters by shovelling snow every day for what seemed to be weeks, either. Anyway, I got myself fit again and played football for the first time in the first week of April 2013. Unfortunately, I went into...
