I was only reaching ......

:a67: :a67: :a67: :cry: :cry: :cry: :a1:

It is hot, I am hot. Plants are wilting. I went out into the garage and bent over to pick up the two hand water containers I have and BAM my back twinged and went out! :a67: :a67: :a67: :a67: :a67:

Sooooo nothing is getting watered right now (plants in containers out front) as I'm sitting in my chair with ICE on my back. No idea what I did other than bend over easily to pick up the waterer. This better not last!!!

Might just hobble to the bathroom and swill down 2 ibuprophen …. Or not. :a67: :a67: :a67:

A couple of nice big gin and tonics will do you more good LLL. May not cure the pain but you won't care :lol: :lol:

But seriously I hope, with rest, your back will soon be OK :up

Today am fine. Yesterday I was 'ok' but feeling tentative however today I'm back to usual. Am thinking the ice did the trick.

@LovelyLadyLux
Pleased to hear that LLL :up
I was concerned because many many years ago I did something similar that was actually a prolapsed disc. They had to bring a single mattress downstairs for me to sleep on the floor for a week or two. I could hardly move :( :lol: :lol:

It was the totally unexpected "ka-zing" that got me. I was simply bending over to pick up the watering can. No twists, turns, nada and it 'struck.' I think sitting on ice for a couple hours definitely helped and now I seem to be good.

I've heard that and see it in action and definitely do that IF I'm lifting something heavy but I doubt the plastic watering jug weights anything at all.
