I have suffered from L5/S1 nerve pain since 8/27/09 resulting from an accident. After tons of treatment, last week I began to improve. By Saturday I was almost without pain, it was amazing. Of course I was anxious to take my horse out. My riding buddy went too-our first ride together in 3 months or more! Beaut day. I totally forgot about my issue. Too long of a ride-Short story, here it is 3 days out now and I'm back to the drawing board with out of my mind pain. Damn! I know that many of you have done this, I've done this before with my chronic arm pain. I feel like a big dummy, should have set a very short time limit for the ride, couldawouldashoulda, maybe shouldn't even have ridden-that's it, should have waited till I had a few weeks of semi normalcy under my belt before even thinking of getting on. Grrrr.
