Ok, now it's starting to piss me off.

I've had this weird thing with my back for the last few days. Out of nowhere.. and I haven't had anything like this before.. well maybe once, for a few days I had this strange pain, which I can't remember is like the current thing I'm feeling. Well if it only occurs about every 2 years for about a day I can survive, but..

I might have a "pinched nerve" whatever that is.. it feels nervy, and kind of pinchy, or it could be sciatica which is what I'm most worried about, assuming a pinched nerve isn't worse than that. I knew someone.. know someone sorta with it and it's a problem. Complete mystery as to what causes it, can't be cured and can barely be relieved, just puts you in constant discomfort, sometimes it's worse, sometimes it's tolerable but mostly it screws you up for doing a lot of things. At least that's what I gathered.

I really sorta feel like going outside and at least walking, but I don't really feel like it. I'm not going to blame it on my back completely, it's difficult to get myself away from the computer and out at the sunshiniest of times when I'm feeling normal, but this doesn't help. Yesterday when I took my one walk out to go shopping it was really painful, or at least uncomfortable.. I feel as though I should be walking, or exercising but when I do it doesn't seem to help. I don't know.

Where would you put it on a scale of one to ten? When I start getting mysterious lower back pain, I start to worry it's a kidney stone (I've had them three times), which is of course an eleven on that scale.

I'm not sure, it was more weird than painful, sometimes it got up to about a 7 though, if it was at it's worst when I was out walking, usually between a 3 and a 6. It seems to have subsided now, hopefully it's just gone and not a come and go sort of thing. I don't think so though.
