    So I've always lifted weights and been a runner. Unfortunately, about 8 weeks ago I was doing deadlifts with some dumbbells (a weight lifting move) when suddenly I felt a sharp knife like pain in my middle lower back. I could barely bend over after that.

    Fast forward and it's been 8 weeks. Although the pain has gotten better, it still flares up from time to time. Just to be careful, I haven't done any weight lifting or running during this time period and it's eating me alive. Besides just walking, I have no other way to release my endorphins so just wanted to vent and say to those of you that can...do not take exercising for granted. Every time I get an injury it always reminds me of this. But this one is more frustrating as ever because I can't seem to heal. I've been doing PT stretches/exercises at home every day for my hip and lower back...I'll go for days without pain but then yesterday I decided to walk 4 miles with my wife and it flared up out of no where. I haven't been to a doctor because I thought doing stretches and giving it time on my home would heal it but it might be coming time for that soon.

    Don't take exercising for granted!

    That's terrible man. Hope you get better.

    This goes for pretty much anything we do. The whole "first world problems" thing has been used as humor, but they're true.

    We complain too much of what we have to do, but in reality we have the luxury to do it.

    Complaining about exercise / self improvement / relationships / success / money / work / etc. We have the luxury of experiencing and developing these things in our lives.

  4. That's so bad man! I feel some pain in my ankles everytime I walk during my exercises. I think this is because I am sedentary. Hope you get better soon.

    Thank you guys. My point in posting this wasn't just for sympathy but to remind those of you that can, don't take it for granted. Injuries suck and I'm chomping at the bit to get back out there.
