Signs of Aging?

Early this week, I carried a carton of A4 size papers from point A to point B in the office. Didn’t know how many reams were in the carton; probably 6 reams. And I wasn’t wearing very high heels either. However the next morning, I felt a sharp pain at my lower back.

It was so bad that I couldn’t bend a bit at all. I knew I had strained my back. I had problem putting on a skirt; getting up from a chair was a little chore for me too, (that includes getting up from a toilet seat!). I woke up with pain each time when I turned in my sleep. Never knew turning in bed takes so much muscle strength to achieve.

I didn’t go see a doc; knowing I would be given pain killers and muscle relaxants. If I take pain killers, then I won’t know if my condition has worsened or improved. I applied some emu gel on my back to help relax the muscles. It helps a bit. Now my back has patches of plasters, those that ease muscles and back pains.

Is this sign of old age? Nay…Just a wrong position when lowering my back to carry heavy things that’s all.
