My 2018 seems to be starting like a wave. While the initial days of 2018 started with great news of upcoming work, a possibility of a small vacation with Sanglyan to prep the mind and soul, I can’t write I can type the same right now. To begin with I’m cancelling and have cancelled majority of my travels slotted for January. The reason being – My disfiguring Spine issue.
I did suffer from mild back pain for which the blame always went to my towering heels which by the way I can work comfortably in. It was not so frequent and I could handle it. I used to think that maybe the late twenties is catching up with me. But who was I kidding! My house currently doesn’t even have a single straight chair because I wanted to transform my house into a cozy space than convert it into a contemporary space. Enter Recliners and sofas with big pillows. But little did I know that not sitting straight could be so detrimental to the spine health. Last week my back pain intensified to the point I could just not lie down to sleep and once I did, the pain was so severe that I could not move my body. I thought it was again just those one of cases when I probably wore heels for a prolonged time or lifted weights in the gym with a poor posture, but over the course of days, my pain intensified and I could no longer stand straight, twist my body, squat or bending. I felt like my spine was literally breaking and I decided it was time to consult a specialist after all. I googled spine specialists in Bangalore before deciding on the one I’m going to at the moment. I usually feel I have a high threshold for pain, considering I loved how my body ached after a good workout but this pain in particular, was horrible.
