Not to be confused with Kenya tell me what country you were born in Mr. POtuS?

All you under 40 something's need not apply.

Got out of the shower on Sunday reached over to put on my clothe's and pulled a freaking (what little I have) muscle in my back just west of my Starboard shoulder blade. Holy cow. Couldn't catch my breath for a few minutes. Been sore ever since.

Tried to make it to work yesterday (which I've been out of and really, really wanted to go) and had to turn around due to the pain.

Went in today and things were better until I tried to get off the ferry and things got jarred up again. By the middle of the day things were back to normal. Until I got off the train and into the 5 minute commute back home. Had a sneezing fit, lol. OMFG, I saw stars the whole way home.

I'm away forever, but I'm feeling better...

I don't doubt it. Those though are the secondary conditions of a primary condition. Like bad tires on a poorly aligned car.
Sure but lots of cars out there with perfectly good alignment still need to replace their tires after a bunch of miles and they get OLD and WORN out, lol.

Dr Evil or Dr Buzzkill? ;)

Normal wear and tear vs. abnormal wear and tear. Same goes with aging. Just because a lot of people experience it doesn't mean it's normal. It just means it's common. Not meaning to be a buzz kill, just trying to clear up some misunderstandings most have.:cool:

Can't blame it on the MD's; I haven't been there in years. I've learned to form my own opinions through the school of hard knocks.

Back and knees, I felt your pain last week. All better now and ready to overdo it again... Advil ( not on an empty stomach ) before bed helps sleep which helps repair and rejuvenate. Go easy.

Well... I haven't pulled a muscle like that in a while, but I do feel your pain.

What works best for me to counteract the pain is to use it, such as go out and mow the lawn, rake the yard, etc. and it will help to loosen up that muscle.

Second best option is heat, pain reliever, and maybe some alcohol to go with it. lol

Second best option is heat
Ice instead of heat. Pain is from swelling/inflammation and heat dilates the vessels to cause more swelling. You could also take 1 cup of vinegar (any type) added to 1 gallon of room temperature water and mix it up. Put a towel in it and wring and apply to area of pain. Vinegar is an anti inflammatory and soaks into the skin. You won't smell too good, but I imagine you already have a strange odor to you grutt.;)
