I've been cleaning out my attic for the last week so I've been lifting boxes while being bent over the whole time. So on Saturday I went to reach for something and OUUUUUCCH! Felt like someone stabbing me with a knife in the back .
About eight years I pulled my back out and haven't had an episode since. Other than the pain, I'm now walking really slowly. And slightly bent over. And I'll walk for a few steps then have to stop. Then you'll see a look of pain on my face. Embarrassing.
If I saw someone walking like this I'd probably think, "Oh my God. That dude is about to crap his pants and he's looking for a bathroom!"
Very humiliating for someone like me.
