    It’s almost got my back too.

    That’s exactly how I felt this morning, too.

    I’m middle aged, but haven’t experienced it yet. Will be dreading that fateful morning. Hopefully later than sooner.

    No, I didn’t hurt when I was 35 either. For me, it started in my early forties and has gotten progressively worse. I’m 56 now and live on ibuprofin.

    After I get home from work and sit down for a few minutes, this is how I feel getting back up. Been roofing for almost twenty years. I think it’s starting to take it’s toll.

    Wife and I use a rental car every few months. We can tell how good it is for us to get in/out of by the sounds we make (or don’t make) getiing in/out of it.

    Oh,yes it is a good tired. I really enjoy being contorted into a fetal position every time I do yard work,

    Yep, that’s an old-people tired, for sure………. creaky, groan-y, whine-y, the whole 9 yards………. plus an additional foot and a half……….

    I’m with Comic Minister and the implication of stinging ants… I think there was something more than back pain. The expression on Arlo’s face was an exact reproduction of mine when I bumped a bee hive when I was doing some yardwork

    Consider yourself lucky, Bawana. I too have back problems (compression fractures) and am under doctor’s orders not to take any NSAIDs because they’re blood thinners, and I have problems with low platelet count as well. About the only pain reliever I’m allowed is Vicodin, and I consider that for emergencies only. What do I take when my back hurts? Nothing, unless it’s bedtime and I need it to sleep.
