… I blanked on everything I know about good body mechanics while lifting when I was clearing some weeds around the front porch. I kept pulling on one of the sneaky type of weeds that looks all weak and wraps itself around everything above ground but in the soil is a network of thick, woody roots. I felt and heard a pop in my lumbar spine and immediately decided to spend the next several minutes supine on the walkway, moaning. My plan is to spend a day or two in bed, taking ibuprofen.

I’m so sorry to hear that (and I hope you’re trips went as well as possible.) A tip from a compulsive nagger who suffered a pretty horrible back injury at fourteen, which still gives me problems:

It’s best to keep mobile in these cases. Nothing strenuous, of course, but keeping still has a habit of making things worse.

I’m sorry to hear about your back injury, but the medical care I can afford right now is coming from people with back problems, so I appreciate your insights. So, yesterday I rested and alternated hot and cold and took ibuprofen, which I’m taking at prescription doses anyway for arthritis. That has helped. I will be up and about this afternoon and see how things go.
