I haven't worked out in 6 years.. I played hockey 7 days a week, sometimes twice a day until I popped 2 disc in my back getting run over by a stupid race car.. No more joy..

You knew I knew that you knew that I knew..


Tried a chemical nerve block to see if spinal nerve cauterization was an option and I didn't respond. Got steroid injections for a few years with limited success. Met with Dr. Trammel who is considered the best in the racing industry for back injuries (primarily driver injuries) and he advised that I would be better off waiting several more years for technology to catch up in the disk replacement field. % of success for my specific injury(s) isn't that great.

I religiously use my inversion table and have a prescription for the non-narcotic pain killer called Tramadol that has worked wonders for my quality of life. Now all I have to do is figure out a workout regime that both interests me and doesn't whack my back so I can lose about 20 lbs and that will help the back a bunch.

I've been walking halfway to work and back instead of taking the bus the whole way the last 2 weeks. Morning's I wouldn't really count, but when I get off it's about 10 blocks to the busline up a stupidly steep hill. I've lost about 20 pounds in the last 2 weeks so far from it lol.

Thinking I'm gonna start going to the gym on my next paycheck.

Yeah disk pain blows, I popped 2 out of place when I worked at Lowe's and basically spent 9 months in bed vibrating in pain because I didn't have insurance.

It's pretty ok now and I think losing weight is going to help it quite a bit. I'm pretty much used to the pain from it now from working construction right after through 2009.

I have 2 bad discs also and wake up in agony every morning, through the day with the aid of a few pills and just by loosening up itself it gets a little better but back to almost crying in the morning again.
