This year is not starting out well for me. I have been experiencing back pain for the last 3 weeks. I was still running up until this past Monday. The pain was only occuring when I was sitting @ my desk or when I was in a car. The best way to describe it was nerve pain. Since it had gone on for over 2 weeks I decided to call my doctor about the lower back pain & booked an appointment for Friday (Jan 14th). Since the back pain didn't occur when I was running, I kept at it. On Monday evening however that changed and my back was hurting while I was running. Plus my right big toe was sore.
