I've a slipped disk. if i avoid pushing myself without warming up i forget its even there. but if i reinjure it, every injury feels worse than before. beginning few days of injury, even sneezing hurts. should i avoid labor jobs if it doesn't hurt?

Yes: Avoiding heavy, physical jobs will be wise, given the damage on your back. Pain sounds radicular through a pinched nerve and heavy lifting, pushing, pulling will definitely exacerbate it.
