    Yesterday I carried a big old fashioned monitor from (for Manchester students) Upper Brook St to Oxford Road, then got on a bus to my house. Then carried it another 250 yards from the bus to my house.

    Probably was about 500 yards all together. Today I woke up my shuolders really ached, this is getting woese, but now my stomach feels like I have been beaten up.

    Everywhere is really sore but there is no physical signs of any bruising, Will this pain go soon?

    I am really worried about my hernia returning but I can't find any lumps anywhere so I think luckily that won't be a problem. It kind of feels like food poisining without feeling sick or needing the toilet.

    Surely builders have to carry heavy stuff all the time though? I don't know why I am so battered just for carrying a monitor down a few streets.

    I do feel a bit sick now, but I think this is down to poor sleep and my general life style at the moment.

    I can't get to the doctor until Thursday now as I really cannot afford to miss a single second of university atm.

    Because you're not used to it, and were probably not carrying it properly. I doubt you're internally haemorrhaging, you've probably just messed up muscles you didn't know you had. Do some stretching and if it doesn't get better by next week see a doctor, but I really doubt it's serious.

    what are you eating? and what did you eat that day?
    Do you regularly exercise?
    What's your sleep cycle like?

    Feeling any better?

    Sunday night - Go to bed at 1:30 up, 9:00
    Monday - Bed at 2:00, up 10:30
    Tuersday bed at 2:00 up 9:00
    Weds - bed at 2:00 up at 11:30

    wow, you get plenty of sleep!

    Mine is:
    Mon, Wed, Fri sleep at 2, wake at 7
    Tues, Thurs, Sat sleep at 2-3 wake at 8
    Sun, sleep at 2-4 wake at 10, if I get to bed early (2) I can get almost 7 and a half hours sleep. Bliss.

    To think I normally sleep 10-12 hours a night at home.

    Its decieving though becuase quite often I am lying in bed till 3:00 and have to be up at 7:00, I end up worrying about the fact I haven't go to sleep.

    As for my sleeping pattern I will be working soon hopefully so I will have a proper sleeping pattern then. Computer software developers have a habbit of staying up late though, its apart of the geek culture.

    Its great when going clubbing at 3:00am and you're still perfectly awake, without the aid of any ilegal drugs.
