Update on my backache...

So I finally saw a doctor about my backache, which by the way, is a lot better today...
I went to "Florida Institute of Sports Medicine" to schedule an appointment and the lady at the front desk told me that there was a doctor available to see me right away, so I jumped at the opportunity..
I got x-rays and a quick assessment and was then told that there is NOTHING wrong with my back.... WHAT?? I mean.. YAY... but WHAT?? who can explain this pain then? I'm definitely not making it up... nor would I make it up!
... it turns out that my back looks "very nice" as the doctor put it and the only thing that COULD be wrong is the normal "wear and tear" from my daily activities (i.e. lifting babies all day long).. Ha!.. So I was given a support back brace and a pain patch (which I had already tried) and was prescribed physical therapy for 4 weeks...
Hopefully all of that will work and will be back to normal very soon! **fingers crossed**

I know how you feel! I have back pain almost everyday. Its really bad and I was told I just have to strengthen my back muscles again. Supposedly they got weak during pregnancy. Its just really annoying, and hurts so much. Sometimes it hurts to even carry and pick up Christopher!
Hopefully your back feels better soon!!! :)
