    Blew my back out today.

    Went to the batting cages with my son and POW! I hit a few balls and then it went. This isn't one of those type that cramp up later, this is the "it just went all at once" type thing. I swung and the pain hit me. I knew I was in for it right then.

    I dropped the bat and got out of the cage with the machine still running. My son is only 6 and I don't think he understood what happened. He was asking why I wasn't hitting the rest of the balls. I was just trying to force myself to breath. Those of you who have been here know what I mean. Ouch!

    This is my first real "it sucks to get old moment". Every time I cough it feels like someone is stabbing me in the side/back.

    Prayers please.

    Drugs are your friend. Rice in a tube sock, in the microwave will give moist heat (careful it can get very hot very quick).

    Mine hit a couple of years ago. Feared I would die then feared I wouldn't.

    Get better soon.

    BTDT, it is amazing how depilating back pain can be. My episodes have been caused by auto accidents (other guys fault) and I have been lucky the pain was relieved by pain meds and muscle relaxers and exercises at physical therapy. Here’s hoping for a swift recovery.

    I suffered with back pain for several years... every story is different, but when I was dealing with a pain specialist I learned it's important to stay ahead of the pain. Pain creates its own extra problems! Advil became my best friend for a long time. I was the tough guy, but I found out that especially with back pain, the body contorts itself to avoid the immediate pain, but the new position(s) create new muscle pains worse than the original ones, and you can't tell which is which. Best advice is to get flat, get immobile, and take something for the pain.

    Good luck to you!

    Don't worry, there are plenty more getting old moment ahead. I blew mine out back in 05. Yes it sucked. My son had to help me get dressed.

    I spent three YEARS with a back injury from jumping off of a retaining wall in my late twenties. As several others have said, take the meds! I don't like to take drugs. In fact, I HATE drugging myself. But, the alternative is worse.

    Get better soon.

    You have my prayer. Follow medical long as they say. Don't just think "I don't need this" and stop because it may come back right away. When you are better, do some physical therapy for strengthening the back muscles. Don't just start doing what the local gym jock says, but go to a physical therapist and get their advice.

    It sucks getting, but the alternative is worse .
