Donna and I went out to a local church today and cleaned 10 furnaces, we got them done in about 6 or 7 hours.
I can bale hay for a day, Pull 23 tons of water off a truck twice a day, or work the farm for a 12 hour day and not feel this sore.
This is not physical or demanding work, just a lot of bending and honkering down.
My question is, does anyone know the name of this disease? I have looked in all the medical journals, and it ain't listed.
The little neighbor girl suggested old age, or oldtimers disease, but I KNOW that ain't it, cause we ain't old!
Looking for a prescription, I hate to have to OD on beer to make the pain go away(grin)
Thanx for the help
Ron and Donna (ps she hurts worse than me and she's wayyyy younger than me)

i hate to bring seriousness to this thread :)

but the best thing for the soreness is to drink loads and loads of water to help dilute the lactic acid in the muscles, also you may think of doing something very active that will work most your muscles, not very long, maybe a sprint then some real quick pullups/pushups -- get the blood pumping the acid away...

just my 2cents

Jelly Beans!! eat some before you start and while you are working. Its real and it works, something about Pectin in the candy that helps remove the acids that accumulate on the muscle tissue during excercise, I am told its the acids that cause the soreness after you stop and the muscles start to heal.

I know exactly what you have it is called the BHD disease. You had it right bending, honkering down. Now you can call in sick Monday and just tell them that you have been diagnosed with the BHD disease and will need a few days off.

Now the perscription would be to drink the beer do not, I repeat do not put it on the sore muscles. You might try Ben Gay, wait Donna might try Ben Gay. A very soothing fellow.

I will be thinking of the two of you tomorrow morning as you attempt to get out of bed. It hurts just thinking about it. Good luck!

Also I must commend you and Donna both for the very hard work you volunteered to do. I am sure it is much appreciated by the parishioners.

Mayhaps it be a metallic inbalance problem,a reaction between the silver in your hair,the gold in your teefs,an the lead in your.........feets.

My hair is blond, My teeth ain't mine, and the lead ain't in my feet!!!!!

Ya i know - "Darn right they're my own teeth - cost me a pretty penney too!" lol

Ron & Donna, your stiffness comes from mistakes you made before you were 40. Every morning i get a new reminder of a nuther old pratfall. Boy i musta been clumsy! :)
