While out with Ollie yesterday, I started to get a pain in my back. It didn’t feel like conventional ‘backache’, but was no less unpleasant. By the time I got home, I was feeling rather unwell with it, and couldn’t get comfortable. So I took some Brufen, and laid on the bed for a while.
I managed to prepare dinner for when Julie got home from work at 6:30 pm, but I didn’t enjoy it, as the pain hadn’t shifted at all. Before 8pm, still daylight here, I had to take more tablets, and go back to bed.
The pain woke me up after midnight, and Julie found me some much stronger tablets, Naproxen. After taking two of those, I went back to bed and managed to get back off to sleep. I didn’t wake up this morning until 9:20. I had slept for almost twelve hours, and the pain had gone.
Though it left behind that ‘pain memory’, a niggling feeling around the same area where the problem had been. I have no idea what caused it, but I really hope it doesn’t come back.
