I hurt my back :( Today I completely screwed up my back. I was at my University gym lifting with my workout partner, and things were going fine. We were finishing up on our last exercise, when it was my turn to lift the heaviest amount I was going to for the day. I got the first rep, and then on the second, BOOM, pain throughout all of my lower back. We were doing deadlifts, and I always try to have proper form. I don't know what happened with it today, but whatever I did, this is just horrible. It hurts so bad to sit right now and write this. It hurts to bend over. I look like I'm 180 years old! I've been taking Excedrin Extra Strength, and that has helped a little... but not enough. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do? My current plan of attack, is to continue to lay down, and try to sleep it off (thank god it is friday). I'm giong to keep popping the meds (next round I'm switching to Aleve to see if that works better). Tomorrow if the pain is not manageable, I'm going to the doctors. This sucks! It's amazing how often your lower back comes into play in everyday movement.
