THE PERILS OF DUST BUNNY RELOCATION

Agh!  Folks, I am in pain!  I was trying to straighten up the kitchen and dining room just a little before work, there were bags of groceries on the floor by the frige from yesterday's shopping trip and the table has last nights supper dishes on it... So anyhow I thought I'd do what I could in the time that I had.  I got the gallon can of Nacho cheese (my kids eyes lit up like Christmas when they saw me come in with that Dairy Delicacy but Colesteral and Saturated Fat Disaster... "Thats MY cheese, Not Yo Cheese!"  Poor Steve was so sick of hearing that by the time we got home from Sams) I tried to put it in the frige, but there wasn't enough room so I had to rearrange one of the shelves.  When I had the room I bent over to pick up the gallon can I had set on the floor, and lifted.  As soon as I felt the pain I remembered that I should have bent my knees for a proper lift.  But it was just a one gallon can of cheese!  That pain shot up my butt cheek to my hip, and then down my leg.  Its throbbing as I sit and contemplate how I'm going to manage today.  One thing's for sure, I'm not calling in sick for work because then I'd had to explain that I busted my butt.  Hopefully its just a pinched nerve and will work itself out, but OW!  I've heard of a pain in the butt, but this is not my idea of fun!  It couldn't be my pinkie finger, or my ear lobe, no, I had to go and pull the biggest muscle in my body!  Maybe I should wake Dickidoo up.  "My butt hurts, kiss it better?"  Hmmmmm, that would be like saying "Kiss my arse", only literally!  This could actually be fun, if I didn't hurt so bad.  Thats okay though, I'll live.  It only hurts when I stand up, or sit down, or bend over, or stretch.  Other than that I'm fine!

It does sound like a pinched nerve........ouch!  Hope you feel better..........if the liquor store starts handing out samples, I'd suggest you get in line, and you'll be feeling better in no time, LOL ;-)  but seriously though, hope you feel better soon!

I'm sorry that you're hurting.  
Maybe you should be playing that song on your stereo by Melissa Ethridge... "It only hurts when I breathe."
lololol
I did something like that once.. was playing with the dog and stretched my leg too far and pulled my muscle in that same area... OW!!!  I limped for days.  Sat on cushions every time I had to sit.  I looked like I was 100 years old.  
So, I feel for you girl!

No way around it...someone's gotta massage your butt. Sounds like a case of sciatica. :-)

    I didn't know there were gallon cans of nacho cheese.  I'm *jealous*.
    Sounds like you have sciatica.  It's when you pinch the nerve that runs from your spine down the hip & rear, all the way to your foot.  You should talk to the Doc.  It can cause numbness, pain, and burning sensations depending on how badly it's squished, and usuallly once you're having a problem with it, it will happen *again*.  I had it for years as a teen and it was no fun, as you know.
    Always love reading your J.  Can't wait for more!

Sounds like Sciatica. Put an ice bag on your back near the center of the buttock where the pain is coming from and see if that eases it. Hope so.
If you don't have an ice pack, a plastic bag or sandwich bag with ice will do.
