I've noticed the past week that the tips of my toes go numb when I bend down, like to pick up a hoof. My back's also been bothering me too. At first I thought it was from my HEAVY backpack, but now I'm wondering if my mare's bucking and pogo-stick back legs could be doing it. I know my saddle fits (got a new one fitted just last month). Could this be a pinched nerve, and what can I do to fix it. Would I HAVE to go to the doctor (i hate the doctor and from what my friends have told me- the chiropractor isn't much better), or are there stretches I could do at home? Also, whenever I lay down on a hard surface (the floor) my back cracks several times. When this happens it feels like a TON of pressure has been released.
Only 14 an I already have knee/hip/ankle and now back problems LOL- I can tell you that I know when it's going to rain :)
