And I have been waiting. It's been 7 years, since my second riding accident. I was told, that it will heal. I believed that, but it is my fault that it didn't since I didn't work enough to strengthen my spine, muscles and core.
Now, for the past 9 months I have been working out minimum 3 times a week. I see the results that I feel great, lost weight and muscles that actually works. And still.. My lower back snapped on Saturday, while I was bend down to clean the horse's hooves.
I was told that doing sports will fix my back. Will it? At what point?
I don't know what is actually wrong in the back, it's the level of sciatic nerve (or this is just my guess) and the stabbing pain goes from the back until buttocks and leg. Leaving the right side of lower body numb. That's no good.
So I am waiting, at the doctors office and I will try to get my case transferred to specialist and hopefully an MRI for the back.
I hope this will end someday. 7 years. I can't remember how it feels to live without pain.
Ps. My dear Finnish friends, check out that poster in the doctors waiting room!
