Pain Moving?

As with all new year resolutions, I have decided to improve my life by getting healthier, eating better and being more active.

That said, the last week or so I have been doing gentle exercise and noticing that the pain that has been on the left side of my spine forever, seems to be moving over to the right. It doesn't make any sense to me but it's very uncomfortable and worrying. I also noticed while shoe shopping the other day, a pain that be described as pre-surgical pain. Nearly enough to have me crying and holding onto the racks. I noticed this pain intensely when I was trying on a high heeled shoe (just one) so I was totally off balance and with every step the pain seemed to worsen.

I am frustrated that I am still in so much pain, new pains, old pains, pain pain pain! I was to exercise, but it seems even light exercise causes it to hurt more.

Has anyone noticed this phenomena?


  • I know one thing as much as I used to love high heels, you will never see me in them. I can't even get the lowest of heels on, my standard foot wear is no heels at all. High heels have never been good on a back, we just weren't meant to walk like that.

    As far as the moving pain, more than likely you are using muscles you haven't used in sometime in that manner. Don't forget to ice when your done, as it might ward off some extra pains. If the pains become to much try backing down to a lighter program and gradually working your way up. It might also be worth some physical therapy to get you going, in a more structured environment. As always the pool might be the best thing to start a new program.
