    Old I Guess

    I've had bursitis in my shoulder and back issues from the last birth but I mostly think I'm just getting old. Nothing a little motrin won't cure.

    So tired. Every day I wake up,

    I crack my neck and finger joints a few times, I get up and sit on my laptop all day. After a couple of hours I'm tired, and I've worked out it's low-level back pain. It grows over the day. I know various things about it. I've seen a couple of chiropractors and a physio. I've...

    Bulging Disc In My Neck May Be Causing Chronic Migraines.

    My neck injury was originally caused by a major MVA in 1983.  As I've gotten older the problem has become worse.  No doctor will operate since I can still use my arms and hands.  Any surgery has the risk of paralysis. Meanwhile, I have daily headaches/migraines...

    Especially Recently...

    My back and shoulders have been hurting me for as long as I can remember. It used to be because I was VERY big, but now it's just cos I've got some problem with the cartilage in my back. Don't know what. I wasn't paying attention. But then, when I was helping my sister paint her...

    Every Day...

    my neck and shoulders hurt.....I think a lot of it has to do with how I sit...and it's where all my stress goes. I am always tense. I meditate and relax as much as I can. I'm not sure exactly what to do.

    True ...

    Think it is aided by spending long work hours before a computer. Most desks and chairs are not egonomically made for long durations in the same position.

    I Cannot Turn My Neck To The Left Sometimes

    I am in pain right now from an old neck injury from when I was 13. I went to physical therapy for a while after the accident and now that I am 31, it is awful. I was seeing a chiropractor for about a year and it seems as if I am worse than before. My neck gets so stiff that I...

    Mostly My Back

    I work in a bakery, so I do a lot of standing...on a very hard floor. Plus, it doesn't help that most of my shoes are vans slip-ons, chucks, etc. No support whatsoever. I'm pretty sure my posture isn't very good, so with these things combined, my back is always killing me.
