Ada Nicodemou has disclosed that she has been confined to bed as a result of an injury she sustained while sneezing.
The Home and Away star said in an Instagram Stories post that she was going to head to the gym on Thursday when she sneezed, and chaos ensued.
The 45-year-old experienced what she later characterised as “excruciating pain” right afterwards.
She claimed in the video, “I couldn’t walk, couldn’t do anything, had to basically lay flat on my back.”
Ada said, “I did something, and I believe I have a bulging disc, and I don’t know when it’s going to heal.”
When the soft centre of a spinal disc pushes through the outer shell, it is referred to as a bulging disc.
It can result in tingling, numbness, and weakness as well as discomfort in the legs, buttocks, and back.
Anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, bed rest, and braces are all forms of treatment.
The actress explained that she was recuperating by reading while lying in bed.
She stated: “Didn’t know a sneeze could inflict so much damage,” in a caption on Instagram. Now, I’ve been told I need to take it easy while I mend and relax.
“Can anyone recommend any good novels or TV programmes to me? I need advice so that I don’t lose my mind.
Since the beginning of the show in 2000, Ada has portrayed Leah Patterson.
It is unknown if her injury necessitates a leave of absence from her role on the renowned soap drama.
