Thanks for all the suggestions. I had no idea I'd get so much help
There have been a few suggestions about it being related to heavy lifting, and strangely enough I can almost always lift fine, unless it's with a
backpack of any kind.
I can barely move today- last night's problem has gotten substantially worse. I haven't felt this bad since I was at the school of infantry, but all
I did last night was sit on a stool and run a machine.
So in answer to the questions that have been asked, it isn't always connected to heavy lifting or lifting at all, nor to aerobic excercise.
Anyway, there were a few suggestions here that sort of made lights go on for me and I'm going to try them. I'm especially thankful to Rren, because
as my own stupidity would have it, I recently took up smoking. No time like the present to nip a bad habit in the bud, especially if it's going to
cause me crippling pain.
Also I suppose I'll try some kind of diet to see what affect it has.
Last but not least, my brother gave me this book "combat conditioning". It's basically a calesthenics program and several of the excercises
(bridging, chinese pushups, and squats) are claimed to be really good for the back.
So I'll try these things and in a while I'll post the results for anyone else who may run into this problem in the future
