Tomorrow I might visit the acupuncturist again, the Rakyat and Medical Hall at Beverly Hills, Bundusan… my back is hurting since Chinese New Year… actually not exactly my back… not the spine… it’s the muscle at the back of my left shoulder.

The reason of the pain is something you might not believe… it is caused by eating too much duck during CNY… unbelievable right?… well, I love eating duck before… I usually eat noodle or rice with duck once or twice a week before… during breakfast or lunch. But ever since I was adviced by the acupuncturist not to eat duck about two years ago coz duck can cause ‘air’ to go inside the body, I stop eating duck… and it was indeed true coz after I stop eating duck, I feel my body especially my back muscle no longer get ‘pain’ for no reason… amazing right?… but it’s true…

So, during the recent CNY, I ate duck… and I ate loads coz I said why should I not eat this time?… only this time… so I eat and eat the duck during the CNY eve… and man… coz I stayed late that night… when I woke up in the morning, I felt the pain at the back of my shoulder muscles… although it was quite painful… I still manage to hold it till today… well sometimes it’s less painful and sometimes it’s very painful… so hopefully it will go away when I meet the acupuncturist  tomorrow… 😛

But back pain especially the spine is not only caused by DUCK, it can be caused by the mattress you sleep on every night… that’s why there are mattresses which are designed to take care your back or spine… this type of mattresses are easily available even at mattress stores los angeles… 😀 The price is a little bit on the high, but I’m sure it’s worth with the good sleep and a healthy spine you gonna have… 😀
