    I have scolerosis, and can not stand still for very long. I count my blessings that I can sit and move around, and I excersise daily to be able to keep moving around.

    I too have bulging discs and arthritis in my spine. As others have said learn what your limits are and you wont have as much pain. Having said that it is a hard lesson to learn and I thought I would do Zumba (seemed like a good idea at the time as my back had been much better) needless to say one lesson later I was hobbling around and it took 2 months for it to be back to how it was. I have just been to Bali and while there did lots of walking and I feel much better so I am walking 1/2 an hour after work each night and depending on how I go will try to add more exercise over time.I only do 15-30 mins of heavy housework or gardening at a time and then go do something else otherwise i will suffer and need to take painkillers to be able to sleep that night. I hope everyone with pain finds a way to help themselves as living in pain is not fun.

    i wish pain meds. would help, but they don't touch the pain. I have to set down a lot. I'm like a bobbin cork, up, down to get any thing done

    I go to the chiropractor and it does help. My brother just recently bought me an inversion table and that seems to be helping. Ask your doctor if you could use one. My brother's chiropractor told him to get an inversion table and he did. He has been using it about 3-4 months now and he said he can tell a difference. That is why he bought me one.

    Thanks

    My daughter has a terrible back (two surgries, already). She is now doing Aquatherapy.......which is, physical therapy in a pool. She feels great.

    I've been wearing a magnetic back belt and I can't believe how much better my back feels. When I was told to try it I have to admit I was a non-believer. Not any more. I do realize it's not for everyone but it's working for me so far. Just been wearing it for 6 weeks. I'm not back-pain free but it's at least 75% better. I won't take pain meds, don't like how they make me feel.
