I Took CBD Oil For 7 Days For Anxiety — Here's What Happened

Have You Ever Thrown Out Your Back?

My poor pooch was skunked in the face Friday night, so my hubby and I spent most of the day Saturday leaning over the tub, bathing him over and over trying to get the stink out of his fur. The strong odor has dissipated, but now it's the mister I feel sorry for. He woke up Sunday morning with a body out of commission. This isn't the first time he's thrown out his back, but hopefully it'll be the last. Tell me . . .

I've never known exactly what it means to "throw your back out." Does it mean that you pulled a muscle? Or that you did something to your spine? Or is it just a vague term for bad back pain?

I've never thrown out my back, but I did pull a muscle in my back once after wrestling with a manual push-type lawn mower. It hurt like a bear for a couple of days, but I made a pretty good recovery.

Yes, when I was a teenager. My back has never been the same since. The upside is that I learned a lot of exercises and practice good posture to guard my (weakened) back. All that has made me more fit by having to engage my other muscles to give my back a break, so I guess that part is good.

I have had back pain, but luckily not actually "thrown" it out.

I have chronic back pain but never in the sense of "throwing it out" though today I have a terrible kink in my neck from sleeping weird!

I'm only 26 but I've already thrown out my back before. I was lifting a TV out of it's entertainment unit, and even though I grew up in sports and know to lift with my legs, I lifted it incorrectly, my back twitched, and then I experienced the worst pain EVER. I collapsed on my couch and laid their curled in a ball for like an hour.
