Hero - I have always been swaybacked so my back has always been a little pissy if I didn't sit right or stand right. If I slept on a cranky bed - yeah....my back let me know it. I worked for Sherwin Williams for 10 years and the last year was in a store. Previously I had been in outside sales for them so I wasn't in a regular store. The year in the store nearly killed me...literally. Ruined my knee and had to have surgery. Lifting 5 gallon buckets of paint and 48 lb cubes of sheetrock mud was HARD work. We did get one of the mechanical beds that helped my back more than I can say. I could get up in the morning and not feel like my backbone had been crushed. It would go away after walking around. I also would sit for hours on a barstool making cakes. I would get up and not be able to straighten up!
But for the most part - this just came on like gang busters in October. One day I could walk and the next day literally I couldn't. Within 2 weeks of getting electrical shocks I started wobbling.
I don't know where you are at but if you are anywhere near Houston, Texas go see Dr. Murphy. Surgery may or may not be the answer for you but being in pain all the time sucks.
My sway back was alway cranky - I used to love to hang from the Monkey Bars at school because it made my back feel better. When I gave birth naturally to my first child, my back felt better than it had in years. It is more soreness and tiredness - not huge pains or anything like that.
I hope you get better. Being in pain really drags you down. I want to get better so I can go ride my Biscuit Man. I can't go out to the barn til May 6. I have to go to the doctor that day and I will be going to see my horses before I head to Houston!
