    That's cool. I just didn't want to be over doing it.

    I've got a cold or some kind of bug. It's nothing but whenever i get sick at all it affects my back so I have been sitting around more than usual lately. Sitting around drives me nuts!

    If your back is hurting when you have a cold, your back muscles are probably weak (like the rest of your body) as a consequence of being sick. When you're better, do some exercises to strengthen them. Stretches in the meantime.

    (I've got a couple of bad discs which are fine till next time I really overdo it. Partly made that way, not helped from abuse working on a lobstering boat)

    Leg lifts are a good start

    Thanks for the advice. I do exercise and of course strengthening the muscles that support my back does help. The problem is that I have had a back fusion so there is always pressure in the disc above and below my fusion plus I have arthritis. When I get sick or if it rains several days in a row I just have to rest my back more often. My surgeon warned me before my surgery that it would be like this. I'm not laying around or anything but I used to be a person who was always on his feet and sitting down can get boring.
