Its a pain in the back
For the past few years I have suffered from back pain, sometimes mild, sometimes not so mild. Its been a constant source of frustration for me, making me feel old before my time and preventing me from doing the exercise that I once enjoyed. I have tried many things to relieve the pain; I gave up exercise, I took up exercise, I did walking, swimming, yoga and nothing. I had X-rays and I had MRIs. I went to a chiropractor and a back specialist and I had steroid injections in my spine. Nothing worked. A friend has persuaded me to try acupuncture, so I have my first appointment this coming Friday. Not sure whether this will help at all, but I'm willing to give it a try. I will report back after my appointment. Watch this space...
