Back pain struck in full force on December 31st. And it still continues today although I am improving slowly. I can at least stand upright today. Pain if I try to bend and reach.
I think I may have hurt my back when I was hauling my guitar rig last week. The rig consists of a Mesa Boogie Lonestar Special 1×12 combo, a custom-wired floorboard system, amp stand, microphone and mic stand, and whatever guitars I take out for the evening.
I probably lifted and twisted in a way that strained my back. The Lonestar has enough weight to cause some strain.
I have had recurring back pain for a long time although I had been clear of such pain for almost two years. Anyone with back pain understands the challenge. It can take time for the back to heal. I have spent most of the past week hunched over and taking back pain medication. First my hearing goes. And now the back. I guess this must be the year I turn 50.
Apparently I should rest my back for a couple of days as indicated in the diagram.
