I'm getting old. . .

I seem to have hurt my lower back yesterday playing ping pong. Or at least that's my standing hypothesis. It started hurting shortly after playing at lunch.

For the past week or so, I've had tingling in my arms if I bend my elbows for any length of time, raise my arms, or hold something tightly. This seems to have been caused by the power tools I've been using in the work at the rental house. My arms just aren't used to that level of strain, vibration, etc.

It's a good thing I caught Chunlin before I reached my expiration date. . .

I seem to have already reached my expiration date, or my warranty ran out, or something. Since turning 60, I have spent a whole lot of time socializing with doctors and subsidizing their yachts.

As a Sport Massage Tech, it sounds like you may have a pinched nerve in your lower back or side. Plus using certain muscle groups, standing or bending a certain way -- than you don't normally do; can cause tingling the upper body as well.

A jacuzzi or sauna helps and of course, massage......

Hope you're feeling better.....
