nm34 Posted October 22, 2013 Report Share Posted October 22, 2013 Hi all pilots, I would like to hear experience and advice from you. As posted previously, I am a late 30s career changer. Overall in good shape but of course not 20 any longer. Which is to be taken into consideration - boosting a career in your 40s is not the same as for youngsters. Anyway, recently, my age showed - first time of real back pain. Pain, not ache. I had been hiking for 3 days and the combo of heavy pack and wet chilly weather made my sacrum get really irritated and finally inflammed. Got pills, got better, but the doc said I might be a little sensitive in the lower back and should take good care of it. So it reminded me that I am now in the venerable club of middle agers who have to maintain their bodies instead of purely enjoying it. so do I like my Doc telling me I might have a tendency to irritation in the sacrum, no I dont. It makes me wonder whether fixed wing is a safer choice. So here is the question: how's your back? Did you develop any conditions or did you even start out with one? What's it about those vibrations, how do they affect you? Are we talking Real problems or "just" stiffness and bad posture? And how are the machines different to each other, I imagine Big birds/turbine to be more calm? 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
