A few weeks ago I hurt my lower back. Doing nothing, I might add.

Yesterday I tweaked my shoulder. It radiates from the Rhomboid muscle and moves up over my shoulder. My elbow feels strange. I'm in so much pain that I cannot take a deep breath.

And tonight is my dinner party...

All this adds up to a visit to the chiropractor.

I've never been. I'm a chiropractor virgin. I'm uber scared about it. I hate being touched by strangers. I'm so afraid that I won't be able to relax that I'll end up hurting more.

Beloved swears by the chiropractor and everyone from my co-workers at the gym to the checkout lady at the store are urging me to go.

At this point I feel like I don't have a choice. I have to go. I can't breath or function.

Again, I wasn't doing anything when this happened. I wasn't loading hay onto the truck or unloading grain. I wasn't stacking wood or working out.

Heaven help me!

Ouch! Hubby had the same problem last year and it took 3 weeks in bed and a LOT of painkillers before he could function again.
Good luck and I hope chiropractor helps!

I've never been to a chiropractor either. But I'm thinking of you and hoping you're pain free by the time you read this comment. xo

I've never been to the chiropractor either. But I know people that swear by it! You'll have to let us know how it goes.
