Usually it's a dull pain or it calms if I change position in my work chair, but it was bad today. I've gained weight recently and not been working out, and I've very sure this is related. But, omg, I could hardly think. Of course, I'm about to go on vacation so I'm stressed and trying to do several days of work in one, so I "don't have time to deal with this pain." So, I ate a couple of advil (that did nothing) and gritted my teeth thru it. I'm going to have to get this taken care of bigtime, and soon. It's such a searing, screaming pain, I can't stand it. And I can't stand that I can't just take a pill or do some stretches, that it needs constant maintenance, or it just gets worse. So effed. Thanks for listening.
