Good thing my job is sitting...hurt my back

I think I pulled something in my back when I picked up a bundle of newspapers this morning. They come in bundles of 45-100 and are put on the floor by a table in the warehouse. I have to lift them up onto the table so I can put the inserts in them and then bag them. It is almost like my sciatica but in the middle of my lower back and when I get up or move it shoots down my left side. I sure hope it gets better sooner rather than later. Good thing my job is sitting for the most part. Ugh.

    Ouch! You gotta be careful! I just read that taking turmeric is supposed to help sciatica and nerve pain (and joint pain and arthritis...)

      Yeah and sitting hasn't been good the last 45 minutes either. I have put Pepper essential oil on it but it doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I will have to try Peppermint, Wintergreen and a few others.

      Tumeric...didn't know it could help. I will have to look into it.

        It is slowly getting better but it is a pain not to be able to bend over and do normal stuff.
