    @Becky has some back problems at the moment and is laid up, so will be out of action from the forums for a while (although hopefully she'll be able to pop in occasionally!). Fingers crossed it won't be too long before it improves, but in the meantime, I'll be around to help administer the forums in her place :).

    Sending good thoughts and good vibes her way!

    I know how back problems are, I've been put out of action a few times myself.

    Thanks @ChesterV :) The painkillers seem to be doing their job today, but I feel a bit like a zombie!

    How are you doing today?

    If I'm not being intrusive, what happened? Were you baking too many goodies?:p:D

    I'm doing a bit better today thanks :)

    I have degenerative discs in my back and scoliosis, so they seem to be prone to herniating. I've had a couple of micro-discectomies in the past few years, and this is just a flare up of the same problems. Each time I've had a flare up like this I've not done anything to cause it, it just seems to be spontaneous. Bit annoying really!

    GEEZ! Sorry to hear that.
    I've known people I've worked with who have had similar problems. I feel for you.

    My back is "normal", it's just my diabetes and my weight tend to combine together sometimes and make my back feel like I'm a marionette and someone just let go of my strings.

    Like I tell my friends "it's a B***H" getting old.

    :(

    Yup that's true! I'm only 32 though, so I'm hoping this isn't going to be a continual problem. In a way I hope they suggest a spinal fusion of my lower back, because it should mean I can get on with things! We'll see.

    In other news, I made a vegan wheat free coconut and orange cake yesterday which was yummy :)

    Still laid up unfortunately! It's getting slowly worse, but I'm seeing the consultant on Friday so we'll see what he says. As long as I rest up and take the painkillers it's not too bad, it's only when I try and do things it really hurts. So I'm trying my best not to make it worse :)

    So sorry to hear that.
    I know back problems are different for everybody, but is there no brace or back belt you can wear to help out a tiny bit? I've worked with a few people in the past who had kids with disc problems similar to yours, and they had to wear back braces anytime they were walking or upright for more than an hour or so........

    Not really, it's gravity that's the problem. Ive tried everything I can to strengthen the core muscles (like an internal brace I guess) but the joints are just so weak that it doesn't help. Maybe I should apply for a job on the International Space Station?! :D

    Might need to get a fusion to stabilise the joint, but we'll see. I saw the consultant last night (he had a cancellation so it was brought forward) and I need some scans and xrays. But at least the ball is rolling!
