Ha back issues... I also have one, now maybe 2. 1st one I'd feel a pin prick in the spine & the muscles in the lower back would tighten up so bad it hurt to walk. Funny thing was walking is what always loosened it up, just took time to get it all going again. 2nd one, still have no idea what or why... I think it was a combo of things. A few weeks back I was working a trail building a drainage bridge, digging in a trench all day bent over. Felt OK when done but then slept on an old mattress that was well past its prime, then worked on a car the next day and was on the ground in odd positions. Been nursing that one now for a couple of weeks. It has the 180* opposite of the first pains I mentioned... this one, walking hurts, standing too long in one spot brings it on pretty quick.
Sunday I was doing another memorial work party for a gal who led crews I'd worked on (RIP Amelia) so there was no missing it. Almost bailed at the trailhead cause I was miserable. Soldiered thru it and had no issues once I got going. That night however after the 2~2.5 hr drive home, got out to fill up the truck, into a store for supplies and had to stop 2x in the store cause of leg pain. That was not good!!! Thought I was gonna bail out of work on Monday cause I did not expect it to get any better overnight. Well funny thing happened when the alarm went off, laying on one side, I stretched with the legs straight out and extended the toes down and viola... pain in the back gone. WTF? OK so I got outa bed & was 95% normal. Now 2 days later, still 95% normal, still have minor pains back there but nothing that is going to stop me from living the dream...
edit: Oh yeah, forgot to mention in all the rambling above... the first back issue I mentioned... I stopped having those when i started doing the work parties on the trails... was surprised by it.
