And now ibupropion is my new best friend.

I haven't been to the gym since Friday, and I'm wondering if doing my kind of slow walk on the treadmill will help or hurt (ow) with my strained back.

It was a poor lifting injury, I think. New computer setups require some hefting. Confused

Staying mobile is definitely a good thing, but make sure you alternate that with sufficient rest. Slow walks for short periods of time, like 15-20 min, should be ok, & if you experience too much pain then stop. Alternate hot & cold packs can help prevent stiffness, as will changing positions regularly & just trying to keep pressure off the back as much as possible.

Take it easy!!
