That sounds like good advice, but since I'm already taking six a day and also on wellbutrin I don't know if my doctor would up the dosage any higher.
And believe me, I wish I could settle with just taking four a day or even less.
Actually, I'd be the a very happy guy if I didn't need them at all.
I've worked in farming most of my life, not to mention wrestling from junior high through college, so my lower back has not had an easy time of it. Imagine being twelve years old and having to throw fifty pound bails of hay onto wagons.
In other words, I've had to do a lot of heavy lifting and hard manual labor for at least thirty of my forty two years on this planet. That's what I believe has led to my back pain.
I just wish there was something I could do to reverse it. Sitting on my butt all day isn't an option and I certainly am in no position to retire.
I've been told that if I do exercises to increase my back muscles, it would reduce the stress on my bones and alleviate the pain.
I'm not sure if I buy into that one, but who knows?
If anyone here does have suggestions about how to deal with back pain other than medications, I'd greatly appreciate that advice.
I want to stop the pain for real, not just mask the symptoms of whatever is causing it.
