I finally caved and took myself to the doctor today. My back has been hurting for a couple months and just as soon as I'd start to think "okay, enough is enough. I'll go tomorrow", it would suddenly feel better! So I wouldn't go. And then it would inevitably start to hurt again and I would just repeat the wait-it-out-cycle over and over.
It's gotten to the point now where it hurts to even skim over that portion of my spine with a very light touch. I don't necessarily feel pain with twisting, bending, lifting, pulling, etc....just when my back is touched. Of course I thought "tumor" immediately because that's always where my mind goes. I told this to my doctor today and she laughed and said "It's not a tumor!" just like Arnold ;) haha Gotta love her.
Anyway, we did X-rays and they really didn't show a lot of anything...just a slight curvature which is, in all likelihood, just bad enough to cause pain. I think it's also sore because I spend a lot of time sitting on hard computer chairs so....definitely going to make sure I take "sitting breaks" during the night at work. Hopefully if I work on my posture and work on moving around more I'll get things feeling better soon.
How about a couple iPhone pictures from my Dr. appointment? That's all I've got.
