Yes, I kayaked Saturday, participating to the NC "Clean Sweep" river clean up program. I think that was what started the problem. A lot of reaching to the side picking up trash from the river bank. Then I paddled a couple miles of class 1 rapids on Sunday as this was going to be my last chance to paddle some NC rapids before heading to SC.  Jack

Jack that's funny you mention that! I forget the name of the river, but Ned said he bet you were up near Mayodan, NC enjoying "..........." river! LOL! Grin  BK  Grin

Hi Jack,

Bet you haven't had that much exercise since you lifted your last stretcher into the back of an ambulance   Smiley

Rest well. And quit doing young people stuff like you're still a young people!!   Cheesy

All the best friend. We're praying for your quickest recovery.

Hi Jack & Folks:

No Jack, don't give up the younger folks stuff, because the alternative is to sit around and get old.

Then all you will have to talk about is ILLS, BILLS and PILLS.

Happy & SAFE!! Bussin' to ALL.

Jack,

I just had a chance to look at this thread again. Makes sense about the kayaking. Be more careful next time, but don't give up the young people stuff. Maybe break into it a little slower, but don't quit. 

So how are you feeling now?

God bless.

John

Sorry to hear about your back, Jack. ..( hmmm, I made a funny).  On the other hand, back pain is noooooo funny.

Larry has tons of sympathy for you, as he was down twice, count 'em TWICE this summer, in his back.  It really was the pitts.  The nd time was right before an unexpected trip to NY, and afer a day or two there, we thought we might just have to pack up and go home.  As it is, a little Chinese acupunturist in Chinatown fixed him right up, yee haw.  He's still watching it pretty closely, but he is definitely on the mend. . .hoping you are too!  Christy Hicks

I have those muscle spasms also.  They are the worst.....bar none.  Except the time I poured gasoline in my ear and that is whole other story.

The only guy that could "fix" those spasms was an Osteopath named Sol Lizerbram in San Diego.  He used a device called the "Diothermy" and it deep heated somehow like a microwave oven.  10 minutes and I was OK.  I went in there creeping my fingers along the wall and grunting LOUDLY.  Took a half hour to get in from my car and that was 30 feet and a hallway.  Put up with them for 15 years till I stumbled on to Sol recommended by a Navy Corpsman that saw my problem coming on an airplane flight.  The Diothermy is no longer in use as it was the source of malpractice suits for millions of dollars.  Sol said that it could do severe damage if not used properly cause it heated from the inside out and there was no heat sensation on the inside.  Now the moral of this story is that HEAT works like magic.  And I mean lots of hot heat.  A hot Jaquezzie is a really good start.  Good luck with this.  I never took the pain meds but I ate those musc relaxers for a couple days after the first visit to Sol as insurance.  Was ok to drive so I guess they were not too strong.

Just an update. After taking it easy all weekend at Kyle's non-rally, my back is feeling better.  I have just about quit taking the pain pills all together and pain is only a dull ache if I stand too long. At least no more sparms.  We are prersently visiting with Gary & Linda LaBombard in Greenville for a day or 2 before heading to John & Lois's place near Augusta for more resting.  Thanks to all for their prayers and wishes.  Jack
