LUMBAGO AND ME September 1, 2008 crizlai That word is definitely not the name of a person nor is it the name for a dance. Lumbago just merely means low back pain and it can be really painful. I was literary sitting at my computer desk working all the time but suddenly I felt the room began to sway about crazily and my chest began to stiffen up. I thought I was going to die of a heart attack but I was still sitting there feeling grumpier and moodier than before. Any small little mistakes done by the people surrounding me will get them being bombarded by me for no apparent reasons. Lumbago has crept into my life sneakily and it had caused my whole body systems to be chaotic. I began to suspect my sitting posture since my work will involve working in front of the computer for a long period of time. Unfortunately, my assumption was wrong as I even experience some chilling pain on my spine when I was moving too. I went for a blood checkup and everything was fine except that I was a bit high on the cholesterol level. Now I wondered if it was due to the high cholesterol level plus the lack of exercise. Even after a small cup of hot beverage, I would feel so lethargic that I would doze off just like that. My weight bloated up although I had lost my appetite for some of my favorite food. My heartbeat was crazy when I checked on my rate through a pulse oximeter. It was pumping at 115/mt which is above the norm of 70-90/mt. My body felt so tense and my mind was restless all the time. I am slowly getting myself into depression and anxiety. These symptoms seemed to come and go but this time it was the worst. It could be due to the stress, lifestyle, diet or even inconsistent time for meals and sleep. It could also be Lumbago mischievously making my whole body to be disobedient. I have lost of answers to my ever painful back pain and it is freaking me out to think about the worst scenario for my health issues. Consuming painkiller was just an alternative but it would be bad for my body in a long run. I would need to settle the root of the issue once and for all to get out of this painful misery. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
