I was just getting ready to brag that I haven't had back or neck problems for a couple years now -- since I changed the position I sleep and --for neck problems -- not drinking before bed.
Then, yesterday, I was casually putting books away at my store, and I felt the nerve in my back pinch.
Same nerve as always.
The first time it happened, about 25 years ago, I was laid low. I couldn't move off the couch.
Each time I get it now, it's a little less dire. I can pretty much function now. I take an Aleve immediately, and then just try not to move much -- nothing I can do but wait it out.
I'm pretty sure this is the most uninteresting blog I've ever written....
