First off, let me say that this post seem quite ridiculous, but please humor me.
I'm 34 years old and have been experiencing lower back pain(left buttock+leg) for about 10 years, which seems to be caused(or aggravated)from careless weight lifting in my early twenties.
Nowadays, I stretch and work my core almost daily, with a program that was set up by a certified athletic therapist and I am contact with a very well respected osteopath. I eat well, with a diet high in flavonoids(anti-inflamatories) and try to sleep well too.
Now my predicament is that I haven't had a flare up in about a year, but I experienced one last week(Wednesday), and I'm finally feeling better today. No more spams, just a little sore and stiff. I have a California golf trip(3 days, 3 rounds) planned for this upcoming Saturday, which I've been insanely excited for. I live on the east coast, so I'm looking at a six hour flight to boot...I have an appointemnt for a 'tune up' with my osteopath on Thursday.
What would you guys do? I think it may be to early to attempt this trip, and I'm about 90% sure I will cancel.
