    In the 8th grade, the school's nurses did all

    the grades (6,7,8)health checks for any back problems. I was next in line and I already knew I got back pain issues. Then exams all weekend and the 8th graders had to go to some party in the gym that was just to sit with friends and chat and play on phones. Gym floors are hard...

    I tweaked my back while lifting

    and it's so sore, I feel like an old man!! Hopefully stretching and a lot of Ibuprofen make this go away quickly, I never realized how big of a role your lower back plays in everything until now. Even sitting in class was painful.
